Singapore: the kid guide

Singapore is one of the most child-friendly places on the planet. There is too much to do and that ensures that your kids will never utter those dreaded words, ‘Mom, I’m bored!’ Here is my map for Singapore with kids.

GARDENS BY THE BAY

We absolutely love Children’s Garden at Gardens by the Bay. With Singapore’s searing temperatures, the number one attraction for us is undoubtedly the water play area. Be sure to bring swimsuits, rash guards, and of course sunscreen for the kids (and you may want to wear a swimsuit as well). The kids go wild for this. There is also a toddler playground (for one- to five-year-olds), tree houses, a space for six- to 12-year-olds to get busy in, and an adventure trail.

When the kids have expended their energy, you can all move onto the Flower Dome where you can explore all areas around the globe through flowers. It will also be a welcome reprieve from the heat (it’s fully air-conditioned).

MARINE COVE PLAYGROUND

This giant playground is a newbie and has two areas split into age groups (little and big kids). It is in the East Coast, so it provides a different Singapore vibe if you’re used to the CBD or Sentosa. Don’t forget your sunscreen because as always, it gets incredibly hot!

INDOOR SKYDIVING AT iFLY SINGAPORE

For seven-year-olds and above, this is for your fun adventure seeking dare devils. Both adults and kids can skydive in the wind tunnel at iFly Singapore that is almost five stories high. iFly Singapore is a part of the global franchise of SkyVenture, which has over 32 tunnels around the world.

SCIENCE CENTER

Singapore is notorious for its rainy afternoons. But don’t fret, there are lots of options (besides the dreaded mall) if the heavens do decide to open up. One of Kieran’s favorite places is the Science Center because you can walk inside a huge human body. This museum is super interactive which will keep the kids occupied for hours.

RIDERS CAFÉ

We love this café for Sunday brunch because it is a hidden green gem in Bukit Timah with a breezy ambience. The kids love it because they can go on pony rides while waiting for the food.

SINGAPORE BOTANIC GARDENS

This Botanical Gardens is one of the prettiest that I’ve been to and has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the first and only tropical botanic garden on the list. It should definitely be on your list of to-dos in Singapore. Walk around the gardens and then have a delicious brunch in Halia or the more kid friendly Food For Thought. Bring a football or a Frisbee so the kids can let off some steam. Better yet, bring a blanket and have a picnic in one of the shaded spots.

UNIVERSAL STUDIOS

What kid doesn’t want to go to an amusement park? There are loads of fun rides, shows, and attractions based on all your favorite movies. If you don’t want to wait in line be sure to get the Fast Track Entry pass, which lets you get to the front of the line.

SKYLINE LUGE

Skyline Luge Sentosa is a unique fun outdoor experience for the bigger kids and grownups, too. They have two trails to choose from, which offer fast thrills or leisurely cruises. After enjoying this activity, you can head to Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove to have a delicious lunch in any one of the restaurants there that give you a stunning view of their marina.
