Best places for kids in Singapore

Singapore is probably the premier family friendly destination in Asia, thanks to the wealth of attractions catering to all ages, a clean and efficient public transport system and it’s relatively compact size. Teens will love the parks and active attractions while even young families will have no trouble getting around as strollers and pushchairs can be used pretty much everywhere.

The best things to do with children in Singapore often take advantage of the great outdoors, be that on Sentosa Island just off the southern tip of Singapore or in the many fun and informative parks and museums scattered throughout the downtown area.

Traveling in and around Malaysia is quite convenient and hassle free since it has some major bus terminals and express buses are the preferred mode of transport here. Tickets for which can be booked online from redbus.sg.

Singapore Discovery Centre

All age, any weather attractions are on offer at Singapore Discovery Centre, offering everything from paintballing to 3D movies and even zorbing. Indoor activities include learning what goes into recording the news in mock television studio and a look back at Singaporean history and culture designed especially to be relevant to children.

Gardens by the bay

These otherworldly structures spread out across Marina Bay will surely amaze children of all ages, especially come nightfall when they turn into a spectacle of light. The famous Supertree structures offer an impressive skywalk over the gardens, over-sized seashell-shaped greenhouses recreate chilly mountain climates and there are hundreds of trees and plants to discover.

KidZania Singapore

KidZania Singapore opened at Sentosa Beach Resort in 2015, adding to the already-long list of family-friendly activities on the island. The new complex promises to entertain as well as educate youngsters, with several different zones of fully interactive learning stations dotted around the indoor 'kid-sized city'. Some of the highlights out of the 80 or so role-play activities include a fully-sized fuselage of a Boeing 737, a replica bank and a mini hospital where the kids can brush up on their triple-coronary bypass skills.
