Top Places to Visit with kids in Singapore

We had pen down our experience getting to Singapore by Aeroline earlier or you can always have a shorter journey by taking a flight from Kuala Lumpur to SingaporeIn this article, I am highlighting some top places to visit with kids in Singapore.

Visiting Singapore with kids during Christmas is a total different experience in comparison to the trip I had for work duties. Singapore had so much to offer not limit to the regular Orchard Road, Chinatown, Singapore airport and the clean city.

If you are on a budget, do have a search for the cheapest flight online too, to save you more. To complement, I had included some budget free places that you can visit a walkway away from MRT that we went last Christmas:

1.      East Coast Park

You may want to spend at least half day here as kids will start to bug you to ride a tricycle, bicycle or a scooter. Else it will be just as lovely strolling along the park, seeing people camping - at some designated camping site, Group gatherings, teambuilding activities, barbequing, exercising and merely enjoying the sight.

We come here for Rong Heng Seafood featuring a robotic waiter at East Coast Seafood Centre.
My 2 kids find it fun following the robot waiter in the shop, and we spent about 1.5 hour having lunch and enjoing selfie with the “waitress”.

Do check them out at Blk 1202 East Coast Parkway, #01-03, East Coast Seafood Centre, Singapore 449881
Opening Hours: Daily 11 am to 11 pm

I would not elaborate on this as it covers at myprevious write up. We spent a gorgeous 5 hour in the aquarium and with this you know it’s a must visit. Not only with kids but we enjoy it too. Check out the timing - 2.15pm photo taking, 3.30 crazy elves underwater show, 4.15pm - recycling workshop at Open Ocean Dome.

3.      Bright Nights at Sentosa, featuring Merlion LED lights show

4.      Bugis Street

People often come here for a cheaper and bargain items, from clothing’s, food to souvenirs and knick knacks. Since it’s a covered place, make it a must visit on rainy days.
Along the road, there are lots of Chinese believers sitting by the roadside having their palm read – fortune telling.

We visited a temple, praying for good health. Its named one of the oldest temple in Singapore.
5.      Chinatown

I enjoyed the food street that they have – lots of varieties, chicken rice, fried noodles, satay and many more. The décor is a plus point with red exterior and red lanterns makes the lovely hue. An instagramable place both day and night.

“Mei Heong Yuen dessert” makes us visit them twice during our trip. The shop serves creamy dessert soups, ice blended and snacks too. Check out our ice Starwberry mango, red bean soup and herbal jelly.
There are long rows of shops and you can get souvenirs – from keychain to shirts and others at a reasonable price here.
Spotted an unique comb shop and here is where I had my eye on a zig zag comb that I named “my birthday present” this year.  

6.      Muzaffar Centre and Little India

Its already a wee 1130pm at night and we want to make best of our day in Singapore. Too many places to visit with too little time. It seems that we had to tip toe back to our friend’s house again tonight. It is so convenient to get there from Chinatown. Just a few station and a little walk and we are in front of Muzaffar Centre, one of the biggest 24 hour shopping centre that have varieties and almost all the thing that you want to find they have it here.

Little India street is brightly lit up with lights and there is plenty of food stalls to keep you awake for the late night shopping. We wanted a light supper but we end up at Minora Authentic Indian Restaurant ordering their famous Kasmiri Naan, Cheese Naan with butter chicken. Simply delicious. The Kasmiri gave us a great impression and it is never the same with the kismis naan at our mamak stall back in Malaysia. We found the closest Kamiri Maan at Sentul.

7.      Sunset and Boat watching at Vivocity and Harbourfront  

Love the stress free sight – calming lake, boats going in and out ferrying passengers, the bright Sentosa Island opposite vivocity can be seen here. A must visit at sunset. Plenty of restaurants for dine in and plenty of open space for you to mingle around if you just wants to pack your food, and have a nice view of the park.

If your kids are into Godzilla figurine, you may also drop by Vivocity, Play E store.

8.      Marina Bay Sands, and Gardens by the Bay,

Spectra – Light & Water display – 8pm (Form Marina Bay – near LV store or Esplanade)

9.      Universal Studio Singapore

You will have to get monorail trains ticket to Sentosa Island from Marina Bay Sands 3rd floor. 

If you love Candy, a must visit to Candylicious. You may find too many sweets and chocolate to choose from. Do assure you will come out from the store with something even if you dont have a sweet tooth, as everything is just too sweet to have.

10.  Nice spot at MRT stations
 Found my favourite panda at Jurong East Stations. Mummy is super happy.

11.  Orchard Road

We want the kids to feel the ambiance of Orchard during Xmas eve. Surely the entire road is tastefully decorated with lots of LED lighting and special décor can be seen at each shopping mall and hotels along the road.
Peoples selling party sprays, LED balloons and whistles too for the festive.
