When you think of Singapore, fine dining and shopping districts are the first things that come to mind. This thriving metropolis is usually the first choice for business trips, but the Lion City is a great place to bring the kids on a holiday, as well.
Here are some of the top places to visit for a memorable family vacation.
Sentosa Island is called ‘Asia’s favourite playground’, and for good reason. It is home to most of the city’s popular attractions, which include Imbiah Lookout, the Singapore Cable Car, and the Merlion Statue.
If you are looking for an alternative to the usual park rides and museum visits, you can take them on a tour of the island’s white sandy beaches. One recommendation is Port of Lost Wonder in Palawan Beach. It is regarded as one of the most popular beaches in the island. It is famous for the suspension bridge that linking the island to the closest point in the equator.
This is a relatively new attraction in Suntec City Mall. Unlike traditional museums where you just look at the paintings, here you are part of the art. Its 3D and object art pieces are the things to look out for here and they are immersive as they are quirky. It is the best place to go if your kids want to live out their dream of being a mermaid or be a part of the action with their video game characters.
If your kids are looking for an adventure into the wilds, there is Singapore’s famous Night Safari. The world’s first nocturnal zoo, the environment mimics the animal’s natural habitat and it makes the experience more authentic. You and your kids will really feel like you are deep in the jungles of Asia as you rub shoulders with a multitude of exotic wildlife ranging from Indian Rhinos, great eagles, and even big cats like leopards and tigers.
Singapore has a lot to offer when it comes to family fun and entertainment. From museums, beach clubs, and zoos, your kids will have an amazing time in this city.
