Singapore for Kids

by - 29.8.09

Hubby's second home is the Lion city, Singapore. He seldom tells me stories of his childhood spent there but I was quite sure he enjoyed it well, after all, Singapore is a very friendly city for children.

During our recent trip to the Philippines, I was surprised that hubby actually included a sidetrip to this beautiful but unassuming city. He said it's about time to come back and also show our kids all the enjoyable places there.

(Merlion at night)

Sentosa Island, which has numerous attractions for families including Underwater World, Volcanoland, a World War II fort and a night-time sound, light and laser show.

Underwater World Singapore – This more than just an aquarium! You'll walk through an incredible 83m-long tunnel where you'll have sharks, fish, and rays swimming around and above you. Touch and feed rays first hand at the Ray of Fun pool. Feed fish at The Mystical Anti Gravity Interactive Concept Tank, through a hole in the middle of a water-filled tank. And see a live Dugong and why they are often thought of as mermaids...

At the Dolphin Lagoon, the whole family will enjoy meeting very special Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins that are actually pink!


Enjoy the Cable cars and reach Sentosa by this...overcome your fear of heights while in there!

We found it most cost-effective to take taxis, although there is an efficient bus service and metro, and we enjoyed checking out all the dining options, especially the hawker centres - Singapore’s answer to fast food but much more delicious.

The kids also enjoyed swimming and droving the peacocks away, which were freely walking about the shores! Like everything else in Singapore, the beaches here are beautifully manicured and it was a great spot for a refreshing dip.

More of Singapore soon!
