Great Singapore Activities for the Whole Family to Enjoy

Whether your family is a group of seasoned travelers who think they have seen it all or newbies just starting out, Singapore is one spot that should be on your bucket list. The jewel of a city is filled with a host of great cultural and outdoor Singapore activities that are bound to fit with anyone’s budget or interest list. From museums that will shed a light on the background of the entire region to nearby beaches where you can simply hang out and enjoy the sunshine, Singapore has a little of everything. But when it comes to great family activities, you just can’t beat this city for fun family times.

Fun Singapore Activities with Animals

If you have kids, you can bet they will want to visit all the interesting and exotic animals that the city has to offer. Did you know that it not only has a top rated zoo, but also a great bird sanctuary and an aquarium?

Between these three your kids can get to know all the fauna of the area and even get up close and personal with many of them. The Jurong Bird Park has an extensive collection of birds and most hotels will have a pickup for it right outside the lobby. The Night Safari is the best reason to visit Singapore and will give your kids bragging rights for years to come with their friends. There are tours of the city that include all three of these great family outings so be sure to check them out while in Singapore.

Let’s Play! Playgrounds to Visit

Kids adore playgrounds and Singapore has some really cool ones for kids of all ages. Be sure to check out the Singapore Mall for its massive and inventive outdoor kid’s playground in the downtown area. It even includes a splash park. Hort Park on the Southern Ridges is a huge park with three great playgrounds for the kids to explore. Each playground is designed for a specific age group so all of your kids can enjoy them. Shady IMM is a rooftop garden with playgrounds that includes a very active water park. Expect to get splashed if you plan to visit this playground with the kids.

Hop On and Off with a Bus Tour

Sometimes you just want to sit and watch the world go by. This is when one of those bus tours that let you hop on and off to check out the city are worth every penny you spend on them. Luckily Singapore has several that offer all the sights of the city from the comfort of your bus seat, and plenty of places to jump off the bus and explore. Get the kids excited about China Town, stop in at the Asian Cultural Museum or just take a stroll together along the Singapore River. The beauty of these bus tours is that you get all the advantages of a guided tour and still have the opportunity to get down and do some exploration on your own when you see something interesting. Be sure to ask around for the best guided hop on and off tour buses when planning your next visit with the whole family to Singapore.
