(Reader's Question)

A 5-day-5-night itinerary for a large-family vacation in Singapore!

Hi! We'll be a family of 5 adults and 5 young children (ranging from 3-10 years old) visiting Singapore for the first time during the Holy Week. We need your help to fine-tune our itinerary below.

Day 1: Arrive at 11am. Check in at hotel. Visit Singapore Flyer, Merlion Park, Helix Bridge. Cruise?

Day 2: Universal Studios Singapore

Day 3: Singapore Zoo and Night Safari

Day 4: Jurong Bird Park and Science Centre

Day 5: Sentosa Island

We'd also like to see Chinatown, Little India and some of the colonial buildings. When should we squeeze it in?

Thanks so much for your time and attention.


Hi Jen

Here are some suggested refinements for your family vacation in Singapore:

Day 1 - Marina Bay and Singapore River

After checking into your hotel, start with the Singapore Flyer, the Helix Bridge and Merlion Park. From Merlion Park, you could embark on a Singapore River Cruise.

Day 2 - Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios opens at 10am - so arrive accordingly. Allow 6 hours here. You could end the day at Resorts World Sentosa or proceed to Vivo City Mall for shopping.

Day 3 - Singapore Zoo and Night Safari

Start the day with something light - such as the Duck Tour from Suntec City Galleria - or just laze by the hotel pool in the morning.

After lunch, leave for Singapore Zoo. This is followed by the Singapore Night Safari in the evening.

(Avoid starting at the Zoo too early Otherwise, the kids to be tired out.)

Day 4 - Jurong Bird Park, Science Centre & Chinatown

Morning: Jurong Bird Park

Afternoon: Singapore Science Centre

Evening: Chinatown

Day 5 - Little India & Sentosa Island

You could spend the morning in Little India Singapore, and leave for Sentosa after lunch.

Important Note

With young children, consider taking it easy. Be prepared to cut down on movements and see "less". This way, the entire group is more likely to enjoy the vacation in Singapore.

Travelling Together During Your Vacation in Singapore

If your budget allows it, consider hiring a licensed Singapore tour guide - who could pre-arrange your tours and take you around in a mini-bus during your Singapore vacation.

This way, your family could travel together and cut down on time waiting for each other. Here's an enquiry form for a customised Singapore travel package.

Have an enjoyable family vacation in Singapore.
