Universal Studios Singapore

1) Universal Studios Singapore

Admission fee: $74 (1-day Adult); $54 (1-day Child aged 4 to 12); 2-day pass available at $118 and $88. Top on the list is Universal Studios Singapore, on Sentosa Island, specifically the Resorts World Sentosa which is smacked right near the land entrance of the island.

Seven zones – Hollywood; New York; Sci-Fi City; Ancient City; Lost World;...

S.E.A. Aquarium

2) S.E.A. Aquarium

Admission fees: $38 (Adult); $28 (Child aged 4 to 12) Be captivated by the charm of marine life, a realm that not many of us can easily ‘dive’ into. Located within the Resorts World Sentosa and within walking distance from the Universal Studios Singapore (Spot No.1), this is a great spot if you are travelling with babies or very young children, or when you have to stay indoors. Explore life under the sea at your own time and pace, as the ‘live’ exhibits of over more than 800 species of...

Port of Lost Wonder

3) Port of Lost Wonder

Admission Fees (payable only for children 12 years and below): $10 (weekday), $15 (weekend & holidays) Head down to the hippest beach on Sentosa Island, the Palawan Beach. Land ahoy! Here’s a special highlight just for young kids - Port of Lost Wonder (POLW) – a nice little enclosed sanctuary on its own, perfect if you have, say tots or preschoolers, demanding to have their own kind of exclusive fun. It’s basically a water play area centered around, you guess it, a pirate ship, suited...

Underwater World Singapore

4) Underwater World Singapore

Admission Fees: $29.90 (Adult); $20.60 (Child) The Underwater World could be your alternative to the S.E.A. Aquarium, if the Siloso Beach is where you and your family are heading to while at Sentosa for some sand and sea. Being an ‘older’ and more established spot, the tickets are slightly cheaper here, but is nonetheless a fun place that your kids will love, with a less maddening crowd. Located just within a stone’s throw from the Shangri-La’s Sentosa Resort & Spa, it’s also...

Singapore Zoological Gardens

5) Singapore Zoological Gardens

Admission Fees: $22 (Adults); $14 (Child aged 3 to 12) An all-time favorite for animal-lovers, the Singapore Zoo is located very near two other similarly-themed sites (Spot nos. 6 and 7). Spread out with more than ten zones of animal wildlife to explore, witness wildlife in action at the animal shows and during their feeding sessions and get a much closer encounter during the animal photography sessions. If you plan to be at the zoo very early in the morning, how about having breakfast with an...

Night Safari

6) Night Safari

Admission Fee: $35 (Adult); $23 (Child aged 3 to 12) [Tickets are inclusive of one round of tram ride] The Night Safari is a safari park for nocturnal animals, less than a minute’s walk away from the Zoo and the River Safari (Spot nos. 5 and 7). Take the guided tram tour in a 40-minute expedition to learn about these animals, as you go on a whirlwind world tour through the seven geographical sections. Here’s where you sharpen your listening skills, heighten your sense of smell and really...

River Safari

7) River Safari

Admission Fees: $35 (Adult); $16 (Child aged 3 to 12) The River Safari is the latest attraction in the Mandai area, smacked right between the Zoo and the Night Safari (Spot nos. 5 and 6). It’s inspired by the world’s great rivers and has one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater fauna. Kids and adults alike will love the comfortably easy stroll through the exhibits, a truly educational experience for you and the young ones as you travel across the globe showcasing exhibits like...

Jurong Bird Park

8) Jurong Bird Park

Admission Fees: $20 (Adult); $13 (Child aged 3 to 12) If you and the kids get so easily smitten by birds, don’t give the Jurong Bird Park a miss! Here’s where you can see our pretty feathered friends at home in the park. You’ll be amazed as you walk into must-see exhibits like the Waterfall Aviary which features a 13-storey high man-made waterfall with over 600 birds flying all over you, and the Lory Loft where friendly lories greet you the moment you step in and cheekily perch on...

Singapore Science Centre

9) Singapore Science Centre

Admission Fees: $12 (Adult); $8 (Child aged 3 to 12) Science? Entertaining? Well, it can definitely be, at the Singapore Science Centre! Invoke the interest of your young minds and have fun learning Science as a family with the interactive exhibits. Varying themes ranging from microbes to robotics will keep the little ones so busy that you may miss the daily Science demonstrations and shows, so keep a look out for these along the way. The outdoor Waterworks exhibit is a definite hit for kids too...
