Visit Singapore

Singapore is one of the most family and tourist-friendly destinations in Asia, not to mention ho green, clean and modern it looks there. In the past, some travelers criticized Singapore as a city that lacks passion and character unlike other cities in SE Asia. Now, the Lion City has changed, and it is now a center for fashion, art, culture and some big-name events.

Street vendors in Singapore line the roads selling ice cream, sandwiches, etc. when you visit Singapore, you’ll see that the fusion of the Malaysian, Chinese and Indian culture is really obvious and the people in the city are friendly.

With so much to do in this beautiful city, we’ve been able to narrow down the top-rated attractions that will definitely keep both adults and kids fully entertained.

Ethnic Quarters

The amalgamation of three ethnicities in the country brought about Singapore’s character. Therefore, wandering around Chinatown, Little India, and Kampong is totally unmissable. Though kids may find the furniture and antiques shops in Chinatowns boring, but they will fall in love with the traditional shophouses in different colors. Colors overflow in Little India also, from the jewel-colored saris to the red and gold colors of the spices laid outside in sacks. You can get wind-up toys for your kids in any of the shops in Kampong Glam.

Night Safari

Both adults and kids will fall in love with Singapore’s Night Safari; it takes guests in the city on a tram ride through a park consisting of just nocturnal animals living in their natural habitats. You’ll spot varieties of exotic creatures when you travel through the savannah, rainforest, and jungle.

Science Center

The Science Center is a museum that will entertain the kids. With 14 galleries of over 20,000 square feet, the Science Center is filled with interactive exhibits for the kids to get hands-on.

Jurong Bird Park

With 8,000 birds representing 600 different species in an area of 20.2 hectares, Jurong Bird Park is the right place for birdlife in the busy city. Some key attractions include the Bird Discovery Center, Lory Loft Aviary, African Waterfall Aviary, the award-winning African Wetlands, and the Southeast Asian Birds. The money paid for tickets is used to fund the avian hospital and the Breeding and Research Center for the welfare of birds across the world.

Botanic Gardens

The grounds of these gardens are a fabulous haven away from the busy life of the city. You can bring some bread to feed the fish, admire different species of trees, flowers, and plants, and even have a picnic lunch on one of the various lawns around.
