Top 5 Interesting Places in Singapore for a Family Holiday – Fun Times with Fam

Singapore is hailed as one of the premier destinations in Asia to go on a family vacation, particularly when you've got kids. The green and clean city makes it easier to travel with your family with its effective transportation system and multiple attractions.


Singapore Botanic Gardens

Spending time at the Botanic Gardens sounds like a fun and exciting day out with your loved ones. It is an extraordinary garden since it's the first and only of its kind in Singapore to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At these large spaces adorned with colourful plants and flowers, families can easily spend a few hours by having a picnic, taking photographs, or just strolling around. The kids will particularly enjoy the Jacob Ballas Children's Garden where there's a myriad of fun activities to be explore; may it be on a suspension bridge, tree-house, or the vegetables and fruits farm.


Gardens by the Bay

Gardens by the Bay is an iconic destination in Singapore, which can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of age. The Super Tree groves are probably the most notable sight here as they famously adorn many blogs and magazines these days. Gardens by the Bay, which is located within easy access to properties belonging to popular chains such as Park Hotel Group, includes other attractions such as giant flower domes plus a sky-walk, offering glimpses of the city's wildlife from far above. One of the two flower domes is dedicated for every type of shrubbery imaginable, while the other is reserved for a massive array of succulents. With dining options available and a theatre area with educational programmes related to conserving nature, it is indeed a fabulous place for a family to spend the day.



Visiting Chinatown is considered as one of the top things to do in Singapore. Here, one may see the predominant Chinese influences everywhere – be it on the architecture or in the flavours of local street food. Take your tiny tots to the many food places, heritage sites, and exquisite temples, for which, entrance is absolutely free. Chinatown is easily accessible via public transport, which makes it a quite convenient location for a family day out.


Sentosa Island

A vacation in Singapore isn't quite complete with a trip to Sentosa Island, especially if you've got little ones. The sheer variety of things to do can be quite overwhelming, and you'll have a difficult time selecting what you're going to try out first. You can easily get to the island from the HarbourFront MRT station by Sentosa Express. Universal Studios Singapore is a must experience with slow rides for younger kids and roller coasters for older kids looking for more thrill. The Underwater World is another must-visit place here for a unique experience with over 2500 species of marine species swimming all around you as you're taken slowly forward in a travellator.


Night Safari

The Night Safari is yet another popular attraction offered by Singapore for families and it's hailed as the first nocturnal zoo in the world. Founded in 1994, it houses over 2,500 animals that roam about its lush green forests, which are sprawled across approximately 35 hectares of land. This is a highly-sought attraction and it would help if you prepare by purchasing tickets beforehand.
