Where To Take Your Kids During School Holidays (Singapore)

Announcement to all parents: June holidays are creeping up on us again. We understand that choosing the perfect activity for the kids can be tough. While education is very important, it must be complemented with outdoor physical activity, exercise and fun. If your child is enrolled in enrichment classes, remember that they will also need to have fun and release their energy!

Fortunately, finding a kid-friendly venue in Singapore is easy with plenty of options on a range of budgets. Singapore is very family-oriented and provides a tonne of relaxing, fun, and unique locations to make your holiday a memorable one. From large botanic gardens perfect for picnics, to waterparks and adventure parks to let the kids run off steam – you are spoilt for choice when it comes to all that’s on offer for kids and families in Singapore.

1. S.E.A Aquarium

The S.E.A Aquarium at Sentosa Island is one of the biggest aquariums in the world. With enclosed tunnels from start to finish, your kids will feel like they are walking underwater as exotic fish including sharks, dolphins, stingrays, eels, and jellyfish swim around them. The aquarium also features touch tanks for the kids to get up close and personal and hold all matters of sea life including starfish and sea urchins. There’s also the option to stay overnight and camp in a tent with the Ocean Dreams experience. You and the kids can experience underwater life when the sun goes down as you stay in the Open Ocean Gallery room. The experience also includes a guided tour, sensory learning activities, photo opportunities, and the chance to watch the sea animals be fed. If a hotel room is more your style, you can choose to stay in an Ocean Suite room with underwater aquarium views!

2. Universal Studios

Entering Universal Studios Singapore is like walking into your favourite movie! The kids won’t be able to keep the smile off their faces when they see the likes of Puss in Boots, Madagascar, Shrek, Jurassic Park, and more! Featuring 24 rides – with 18 of those rides designed and built specifically for Singapore – and seven themed zones, your kids will never want to leave! For an even more special experience, visit Universal Studios at night. Universal ‘After Hours’ runs on Fridays, Saturdays, and on selected Public Holidays and includes a light-up parade, pop-up stalls, some of Singapore’s best bands, all the while being able to ride your favourite attractions at night complete with a fireworks display!

3. KidZania

The popular KidZania entertainment centres are award-winning fun for a reason! With 24 locations in 19 countries including Singapore, KidZania is a kid-sized city complete with real-world jobs where children can role-play and train and work as doctors for the day or help to keep the town safe as firefighters and policeman – the possibilities are endless! KidZania allows kids to have the most fun while learning important life skills. At KidZania, children can experience different occupations, earn money and use ATMs and act like adults in a completely immersive, safe, kid-friendly environment.

4. Night Safari

The Night Safari located next to Singapore Zoo is an award-winning experience that is a must see and do for the kids. The journey starts with a tribal performance before boarding a tram as you travel through and experience 7 geographical regions of the world. The safari tour includes walking trails, aviaries, and a live show. There are over 2,500 nocturnal animals to see and discover on this unique zoo tour. Keep in mind that because safari’s don’t start until 7:15pm, young children may not cope with the late night activities and this attraction might be more suitable for the older kids.

5. Fort Canning Park

Although it is sometimes used for theatre productions, concerts, festivals, weddings and other events, Fort Canning Park makes for a wonderful location to visit as a family. The 18 hectare area is an iconic landmark that is situated on a hilltop and has a rich history. The park offers something for anyone in the family, from open natural landscapes full of greenery to its historical artefacts and heritage. The park has a variety of walking trails that have been designed to allow you to explore the park. The Battlebox is an underground British command centre that was built in the 1930s. The park makes for a lovely afternoon or morning visit with the family to explore the grounds at your own pace and by finding which part of the park interests you the most.

6. Singapore Zoo

Have your kids ever had breakfast with an orangutan before? If not, then they are sure to want to after hearing about the Jungle Breakfast at Singapore Zoo! Afterwards, take some time (all day if you can!) to explore the zoo. Set in the lush Mandai Rainforest, the zoo is home to more than 2,800 animals including all the crowd favourites such as elephants, monkeys, giraffes, and lions. The zoo also features a huge selection of eateries for hungry little tummies and gift shops to take home a cuddly souvenir. Singapore Zoo is known and renowned for its ‘open-concept’ where visitors can have the chance to get up close to the animals and world-class habitats where kids can learn about the environment and conservation.

7. Gardens by the Bay

The multi-award winning Gardens by the Bay comprises of 101 hectares of landscaped gardens split between two main areas – Bay South Garden and Bay East Garden. For the kids, The Far East Organisation’s Children’s Garden provides interactive playgrounds, water parks, and different zones for different ages. The Toddler Play Zone (for ages 1-5) comes with play equipment, a sway bridge, stepping springs, and a fish fountain with water tunnels and sculptures to explore. For older kids, there’s the Rainforest Tree House, a water play park, and a giant amphitheatre. Nearby, you can take in the spectacle that is the Cloud Forest which houses the world’s largest indoor waterfall. Do not leave the Gardens without walking the spectacular Supertree Grove boardwalk which give the best views of the gardens and the Singapore skyline.

8. MacRitchie Trail

As a one of a kind, the MacRitchie Trails are the ideal way to get outdoors as a family or group in Singapore. The family-friendly 3.2 and 4.8 kilometre loops are part of the tropical rainforest of Central Catchment Nature Reserve. There is an abundance of activities to do and things to see. From kayaking across stunningly clear waters of the reservoir to spotting a variety of wildlife such as macaque monkeys, squirrels, monitor lizards, owls or even flying lemurs! Plus, experience a walk like no other as you stroll along a 250 metre suspension bridge amongst the beautiful, green treetops while still remaining in the heart of Singapore. The MacRitchie Trails are open from 9am-5pm on Tuesdays to Fridays throughout the week and 8.30am-5pm on weekends and public holidays. So why not take the time and show the kids an amazing, natural and scenic trail?

9. Singapore Flyer

If the kids aren’t afraid of heights, then make a family outing one to remember by boarding the Singapore Flyer. The ferris wheel is a well-known sight in Singapore, rises 165 metres high and is the second-largest observation wheel in the world. The enclosed viewing platform is spacious and provides seats to sit back and relax as you see Singapore in all its splendour. The kids will be fascinated, feeling like superman as the wheel goes up high above the skyline. The ride takes 30 minutes and is a great way to appreciate Singapore and view it from a different angle.

10. Bumboat Cruise

Another fun activity for families with kids in Singapore is to go on a bumboat cruise around the Singapore River. Take a 40-minute cruise complete with audio visual commentary as you cruise popular locations such as Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and Marina Bay. A bumboat is a type of water taxi, and they are often painted with eyes and faces (to the amusement of the kids!). A bumboat cruise is the cheapest and fastest way to explore downtown Singapore and makes for a relaxing, enjoyable activity to do with the kids.

Plan your perfect holiday in Singapore

The thought of a full month with kids running around can be overwhelming, but luckily Singapore has more than enough places to go for the little ones to be entertained and have fun. Since they will be burning a lot of energy at most of these destinations, you need to ensure they are getting enough proper nutrition. Make sure your kids are healthy while travelling with the most convenient healthy, organic food. Find out where you can buy Bellamy’s Organic here.
