Day 1: Family fun at Sentosa Island

1. S.E.A Aquarium

Start your day with a 3-hour VIP tour, which gives your family early crowd-free access to the aquarium before it opens for the day. This guided tour also includes feeding time with the marine life as well as a privileged peek behind the scenes of this popular attraction.

2. Adventure Cove Waterpark

Then it’s time to get wet and wild and have a splashing good time at this water theme park located right next to the aquarium. Kids will love the high-speed slides, wading pools and more aquatic themed attractions. Another highlight- swimming among the colourful fish at the Rainbow Reef!

3. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

After getting up close with denizens of the deep, come face to face with the stars of the silver screen and stage, or rather, the wax likeness of celebrities such as Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Cristiano Ronaldo and Singapore singer Stefanie Sun. Time for some we-fie fun!

4. Mega Adventure Park

If your kids still have some energy to work off, then this park is a must-visit. Highlights include a treetop obstacle course, zip lining across the jungle canopy and rock climbing. 

5. Singapore Cable Car

Round off a day of activity with a scenic cable car ride back to the main island. Take in the scenic vistas of Singapore from up high. Once you alight at Harbourfront station, it’s time to refuel on some of Singapore’s famous local dishes.

Head to the Food Republic @ VivoCity on level 4, located beside the monorail station. Recommended delights include Hokkien mee (fried prawn noodle) and bak kut teh (pork ribs soup), served within a clean environment that charmingly recreates the street dining setting in Singapore during the early 20th century.  

Day 2: City centre highlights

1. Singapore Botanic Gardens

Rise up early for family fun at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Head to the award-winning Jacob Ballas Children's Garden within the Gardens, which offers a sensory experience for the kids. Here, they will get to learn and play while discovering more about the plant life around them.

2. Orchard Road

Just a short bus ride away from the Botanic Gardens is Singapore’s famed tree-lined shopping street. Visit TANGS Orchard, Singapore’s heritage department store, for homegrown fashion and accessory labels such as In Good Company, Aijek and Carrie K.

Then seek out floors of dining and luxury buys at ION Orchard and Paragon; Paragon mall also has a Paragon Junior section devoted to kids specialty retail stores.  

3. Singapore Flyer

For panoramic views of the city’s iconic skyline, take a ride on this giant observation wheel. The views at sunset are most spectacular, and on a clear day, one can view neighbouring Indonesia and Malaysia too! After the ride, do check out Flight Experience and live out your dream as a pilot.

The flight simulator is equipped with true-to-life controls within its fully enclosed cockpit; you will feel just like you’re taking off on a plane, like a real pilot!

Then head to the ground floor to enjoy local hawker fare at the Singapore Food Trail, a sixties-inspired food street where some of the best local hawkers have been assembled, offering delights such as chicken rice and fried oyster omelette.  

4. Singapore River

After a scrumptious meal, take a leisurely stroll with your family along the scenic Singapore River. Catch the free Wonder Full light and water show, which takes place twice to thrice each night, at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.

Alternatively, you could walk towards Esplanade - Theatres by the Bay and the Merlion Park for riverside views, or take a leisurely boat cruise up the Singapore River and around Marina Bay, to round off your memorable day in the Lion City.
