Singapore Tour: 4D3N Itinerary with Kids

by Sandeep

I am visiting Singapore from India from 13 Aug to 16 Aug - husband, wife and two kids aged 12 years.Our flight arrives in Singapore at 6.10am 13 Aug and our flight departs Singapore 8.00pm on 16 Aug.

We plan to stay in a hotel in Little India, preferably within walking distance from Mustafa Centre.

As our ticket is with Singapore Airlines. We don't plan to buy the Park Hopper ticket (Zoo + Night Safari + Bird Park) as SIA discounts work out cheaper as per my calculation.

We plan to visit the following places:

1. Sentosa: all usual attractions

2. Zoo and Night Safari

3. Jurong Bird Park, Snow City and Science Centre

4. Duck Tour, Singapore Flyer, and Singapore River Cruise

5. Shopping at Mustafa Centre and, if time permits, Sim Lim Square

6. If possible, a city tour

Please device a suitable itinerary.

Singapore Tour Itinerary for 4 Days 3 Nights
by: Gabriel Tan

Hi Sandeep

here goes...

Day 1: Sentosa Island Tour

After an early morning arrival, check in to your hotel, or at least leave your luggage there.

Thereafter, spend the rest of the day on Sentosa Island.

Day 2: Jurong Bird Park + Science Centre + Snow City

Start early on Day 2 with a morning taxi ride to Jurong Bird Park.

To enjoy both the Science Centre and Snow City in the afternoon, you should leave the Bird Park no later than 1pm.

Here's a more detailed itinerary for seeing these Jurong attractions.

Evening Option:

Return to the city for dinner at Gluttons Bay, sampling local food by the waterfront promenade, near the Esplanade Theatres.

Take a leisure stroll along the Esplanade waterfront promenade and take in the sights of Marina Bay. Follow this up with a night ride on the Singapore Flyer (ticket sale ends at 10pm).

Day 3: Shopping + Zoo + Night Safari

Take it easy on Day 3, with shopping in the morning at Mustafa Centre (24 hours) and Sim Lim Square (opens 10.30am).

Have lunch at one of the many eateries around Sim Lim Square. Then, leave for the Singapore Zoo.

In the afternoon, enjoy the Singapore Zoo.

Take a short walk in the evening to the Night Safari next door. Have dinner at Ulu Ulu Restaurant or Bongo Burgers. More tips here on how to enjoy the Singapore Night Safari.

Day 4: Duck Tour + Singapore City Tour

Option 1:

Take the Duck Tour in the morning (note: the first tour leaves at 10am). This takes you through the major city sights on land and on water.

Once you have a glimpse of the city's major spots, track back on your own to the spot you most want to see again. Take a walking tour through this area.

Option 2:

The Duck Tours company now has a Hippo River Access Day Pass. This is a hop-on-hop-off kind of trip on the Singapore River. You can use all day until 10pm. Apart from taking in the sights from the water, you may also visit the malls, museums and other attractions on the banks of Singapore River. Tickets are available at the following jetties:

Clarke Quay, Hill Street, Esplanade, Boat Quay, The Riverwalk, and Riverside Point.

Enjoy your Singapore tour.

More Essential Tips for This Singapore Tour
by: Gabriel Tan

1. Airport-to-hotel Luggage Delivery

Instead of going to your hotel first and checking in, you could have your luggage delivered to your hotel by Porter Xpress and leave immediately for the attractions you'd like to visit.

This will set up back a bit monetarily, but it saves you lots of time.

Porter Xpress is located at Changi Airport Terminal 3 Arrival Hall #01-23; Tel : +65 62420002.

2. Singapore River Cruise or Duck Tour?

In my opinion, there are overlaps between what's offered by the Basic Singapore River Cruise and the Duck Tour.

Both have a water-based section, where you take in the sights of the city skyline from the Marina Reservoir.

The Duck Tour is more wacky - you ride on an interesting amphibious vehicle. And you also take in major city sights on the land-based tour section.

The Basic 30-minute Singapore River Cruise now operates on electric boats, providing you with a more serene experience and you get to see the upper reaches of the Singapore River, which the Duck doesn't go to.

There is the Singapore River Day Pass described above. Do consider this option if you plan on seeing the sights on the Singapore River.

If I have limited time, I'll do EITHER the Duck Tour OR the River Cruise. But there's nothing to stop you from enjoying both.

3. Science Centre and Snow City Closed on Non-holiday Mondays

For all readers using this itinerary for your planning, please note that the Science Centre and Snow City are close on Monday, except when it's a
school or public holiday. So do not plan a visit to these places on a non-holiday Monday.

Excellent itinerary but I am making one minor change. I will do the Duck Tour, Zoo and Night Safari on Day 3 and only shopping on Day 4 (Mustafa Centre, Bugis and Sim Lim Square), the reason being shopping is tiring for me and doing the Zoo and Night Safari after shopping will be energy sapping.
