travel singapore

If you want to go on an international vacation where a family can enjoy in a decent budget, there is no better place than Singapore. Unlike other places where you have options like beaches, scenic sights and shopping, this place has got a better list of attractions which will give people of all age groups options too . It all starts from the Award winning Changi Airport.I have heard travellers praising this beautiful airport for the facilities and options provided for travellers. When you are travelling in Singapore, you can use the well connected Mass Rapid Transit System which is one of the clean and best public transport system, also best to roam around this island. You can go for some great Singapore tourism Packages which give you the chance to explore a lot. These packages can be customized which makes them the best for a family trip :)

Let us start with the attractions for the naughty little ones in the group. You got awesome options including
Singapore Zoo
Universal Studios
SEA Aquarium
Jurong Birdpark

The adults would love to enjoy the attractions like
Sentosa Island
Tiger SkyTower
Marina Bay
Cloud Forest

Singapore Zoo: Kids are curious and love animals, they would definitely enjoy the zoo. Its education and fun. Singapore Zoo has nicely landscaped enclosures rather than caged captivity, so it’s a pleasant way for the little ones to see, enjoy and learn about the 4,000 animals housed there. They have some special offerings like Breakfast with Orangutans and Night Safari too.Singapore Zoo

Universal Studios: In olden times every kid has a dream to visit Disneyland, but today there are many more options and one of the best is Universal Studios. They can spend the day on all their favorite movie-themed attractions, including Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure, Madagascar (well King Julian and team), Revenge of the Mummy and more. It’s not just the kids, but the adults would also love this :) This is one of the attractions in Sentosa Island among the many other theme parks and there are lot more rides and fun things to do in Universal Studios, make sure you spend a whole day there to enjoy this one.:D

S.E.A Aquarium: Just like the animals on shore, the ones in Sea are also kid’s favorite, let them explore the marine realm of S.E.A. Aquarium. This aquarium is home to more than 100,000 marine animals which include 800 species. These belong to 49 different habitats and each one of them is as interesting and awesome as the next. It’s an experience which kids will never forget.

Jurong BirdPark: Whoever visited Singapore will have a picture of them taken with the beautiful birds at Jurong Birdpark. This place has been charming visitors across the world since 1971. Jurong Bird Park is one of the most renowned bird sanctuaries with some of the largest free-flying aviaries in the world. This is home to more than 5,000 birds across 380 species and is Asia’s largest bird park. One should never miss the most popular family show in Jurong Birdpark, the Birds n Buddies Show, featuring a star-studded lineup of our feathered friends and where you too can get into the action.Jurong BirdPark

Sentosa Island: This is one of the major attractions in Singapore where Adults and kids can enjoy equally. The majestic 37-metre-tall concrete Merlion on Sentosa Island is a mythical creature which personifies Singapore’s history as an important seaport and is known as Guardian of Prosperity. Other than Universal Studios, SEA Aquarium there is a Water Park and the Dolphin Island where you get to see the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins. You can even interact with these wonderful dolphins and learn more about them. The Tricky Eye Museum and the K-Live where there is a K-Pop Hologram theatre are some of the attractions here other than the hotels, spa’s and restaurants here. The Cable Car Ride to Sentosa is awesome.

Tiger SkyTower: This is Asia’s tallest observatory tower. Here we get to see the panoramic views of Singapore at 131 metres above sea level Its not just Singapore but, Sentosa and the Southern Islands too. The views from the Sky Tower are both scenic and breathtaking.

Marina Bay : This is a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. Marina Bay featurs a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions including one of the best infinity pools in the world. Who doesn’t love to take a dip and relax in an infinity pool 57Meter above sea level enjoying the view of the city. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city.Marina bay

The Cloud Forest: The Cloud Forest showcases plant life from tropical highlands up to 2,000 metres above sea level. The Cloud Forest features a 35-metre-tall mountain covered in lush vegetation, shrouding the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and you can take a lift to the top of the mountain top to discover the unique biodiversity and geology of cloud forests, and then take a stroll along a walkway in the clouds for an aerial view of the canopy and mountainside below, a unique experience :)Singapore- cloud forest

Our Tip: It’s better to buy a Singapore Tourist Pass for unlimited bus and train rides for 1-3 days from Changi Airport or online.

Once you are back from the tour, do not worry about the dollar’s left with you or for converting SGD to INR. In fact if you are not planning to keep the SGD for your next holiday, You can sell them here and get the best rates for the same.
