The Top Ten

10 Great Things to Do with Kids in Singapore

Thursday, 19 May 2011

Got visitors coming town, or just looking for some kid friendly weekend inspiration… here is our top ten picks of things to do with the little peeps.

1. Movie Magic

First stop for all visitors travelling with tots Universal Studios. Enter the thrilling world of movie magic as you “ride the movies” on roller coasters and other movie-themed attractions that brings silver screen to life. Be sure to buy the express pass to make the most of your day.

2. Animal Kingdom

The Singapore Zoo is a must on the list. Don’t forget the Night Safari – a perfect thrill for little people and big people alike. If your little one likes feathered friends, Jurong Bird Park doesn’t disappoint.

3. Planes, Trains and Bumboats

Planes, trains, automobiles… trucks, fire engines, boats. Taking a city tour on a different mode of transport is a great day out and if we’re getting all lofty about it, it might even broaden their little minds too.

4. Cheap Thrills

Looking for entertainment that doesn’t empty your wallet? We have a host of cheap thrills ideas that are just waiting for you and the crew. Or maybe your kids have a lot of energy to burn, perhaps they need a day of Tarzan action, Laser tag, or a speedway fix.

5. Wide Open Spaces

Any visitor will love the lush green parks in Singapore. From secret tunnels, to water parks, to parks with flying foxes, kids can run free in a host of tropical green gardens.

6. Indoor play

Ah – raining again? 1000 degrees too hot to face the park? Singapore has a wide selection of kids play centres, and many come with cafes, so mums and Dads can get a caffeine fix to boot.

7. Shop Singapore Style

We have some great kiddy shopping here, some not to miss include the affordable basic range from Cotton On Kids, the well-priced and highly funky Gingersnaps and Zara Kids. If you are looking to lighten the wallet, hit Kids Club 21 for your designer kids fix.

8. Showtime

Right now it’s The Lion King, but with Singapore’s new theatre at Marina Bay Sands, along with smaller theatres like the DBS Centre, there is always a great kid-friendly show in town. See SISTIC for tickets.

9. Discovery time

Kids will spend many happy hours in this vast interactive Singapore Discovery Centre, which aims to teach both locals and visitors about Singapore’s past, present and future in a fun, hands-on way. They can record their own news broadcast, fly a helicopter in a 4D simulation ride, or experience life as an astronaut.

10. Family Friendly Feasting

When the family needs to refuel, head to a kid-friendly restaurant with room for the kids to run. From local Chinese to classic Italian nosh, there are a number of restaurants that are just perfect for those with a mini entourage.
