Best Family Activities in Singapore and How to Get There

Singapore has many wonderful experiences for both the young and the old to enjoy, making it the perfect place for a family to take a holiday together. With the attractions and unique opportunities that Singapore can provide for a family, there is something new that you can see on every day of your holiday – even if you’re taking an extended trip!


Here are some of the most popular family activities in Singapore today:

The Singapore Zoo: In the Asia-Pacific region, some zoos aren’t very family friendly, but that’s hardly the case with the Singapore Zoo. Home of the world’s largest butterfly dome, the Singapore Zoo utilizes the “Open Concept” design for zoo life so that animals have much more freedoms in their enclosures than the typical cage designs. Winner of the We Welcome Families Excellence Award in 2011, a day at the zoo is sure to bring lots of entertainment and educational opportunities for the entire family!

Dinosaurs – Live! As it is billed, after nearly 50 million years, thanks to this attraction, the dinosaurs have now come back to life to explore the planet. With nearly 50 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs created with realistic sound effects in simulated environments, this attraction will inspire the imagination of the entire family. Just watch your step – some dinosaurs can really make you jump! The entire family can see each dinosaur, then go out on a fossil dig, watch a fun movie about dinosaurs that’s in 3-D, and do much more! Located near the Science Centre, it will be a fun day away from the buzz of Singapore!

Marine Life Park: Singapore is also the home of the world’s largest oceanarium, making it the perfect place to explore and learn more about sea life. It is also home to the world’s largest aquarium, and while there, you might as well let the kids become part of the local sea life too thanks to the attached water park. You’ll be able to walk through the aquarium, have sharks swim overhead, and enjoy the wide-eyed looks of wonder on the kid’s faces!


What’s the Best Way To See These Attractions?

By far, the easiest way to explore Singapore with the family is by using public transportation. The bus service is easy-to-use, with many convenient stops along the routes where these attractions are located. Transfers are easy and the service is highly affordable and safe.

Don’t feel like waiting for the bus? Taxi services are available at many of Singapore’s attractions for an affordable rate as well. Light rail services can help get you to where you need to go quickly, with 1, 2, and 3 day passes available that let you ride the rails as much as you wish. Car rentals are also available for those who wish to explore on their own.

Singapore is an excellent place for an adventure that the whole family can enjoy. Book your trip today, see these great attractions, and don’t forget about the benefits of using the bus service so that you can affordably see all that Singapore has to offer!
