1. Universal Studios Singapore
There’s at least one ride for every age group, so every one wins. Relive those moments when you used to watch your favorite TV show Sesame Street via the Spaghetti Space Chase, and meet Bert & Ernie, Elmo, Big Bird, and Count Dracula, to name a few. Transformers The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle is a must as you join the crusade to defend earth along side Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. There are seven zones that will definitely take up the whole day, so prioritize and plan to make the most out of your visit!
2. S.E.A. Aquarium
Right beside Universal Studios Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium houses over 100,000 marine animals with over 800 species. The sanctuary showcases the most overwhelming in marine wildlife, including all kinds of sharks, manta rays, and even seals. Our favorite is the theater-like room where people can just sit on elevated platforms and watch the fishes swim in one of the biggest aquariums in the world. Feeding also makes a treat, so do check the schedules out.
3. River Safari
An interesting way to learn about animals is with a visit to the River Safari. Imagine seeing over 6,000 animals up close, including 40 threatened species, through a stroll divided into the Mississippi, Congo, Nile, Ganges, Mekong and Yangtze rivers. Singapore’s resident giant pandas—Kai Kai and Jia Jia—can also be found here, along with the adorable red panda.
4. Night Safari
Plan your day and spend it in River Safari, capping it off with a tram ride in the Night Safari which is right beside it. It’s the world’s very first nocturnal wildlife park, and you and the kids will have fun learning about these animals and trying to spot them all over the place. Catch their live animal show where you’ll get to meet some of the smartest animals and see what tricks they have up their sleeves!
5. Gardens by the Bay
It’s not too often we get to enjoy beautiful greenery, with most of the spots enclosed with air conditioning, too! Let your children run and explore Gardens by the Bay as they familiarize themselves with the prettiest flowers, and the awesome 16-storey supertrees that are reminiscent of the trees seen in the movie Avatar. Drop by at night to enjoy the colorful light show, too!
