The Singapore Zoo is often regarded as one of the best zoos in the world, thanks to its natural rainforest setting and spacious landscaped enclosures. Start the day with breakfast with the orangutans, and bring your swimming gear so you can cool off at the end of the day in the water play park.
Southeast Asia’s only Universal Studios theme park is at Resorts World Sentosa, where you can enter the world of all your favourite blockbuster movies and TV shows. Ride movie-themed rides and rollercoasters, meet some of your favourite kids movie characters and watch movie-themed shows all under one roof.
There is an amazing variety of sea creatures to see at the SEA Aquarium in Resorts World Sentosa – with over 100,000 marine creatures from over 800 species. The grand finale is the Open Ocean – a huge panoramic marine vista complete with manta rays, sharks, and goliath grouper.
Gardens by the Bay
The ‘super trees’ of the 100-hectare Gardens by the Bay are one of the iconic sites of modern-day Singapore. The Gardens are also home to two huge climate-controlled conservatories, the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, which are fun to explore. The kids will also love the fun water play area, which is perfect for cooling off on a hot day. Be sure to return in the evening for the light show.
A visit to the ever-popular Night Safari, gives you the rare opportunity to get up close and personal with hundreds of exotic nocturnal animals in their natural habitat. Nestled in 40 hectares of lush secondary forest, subtle lighting facilitates the viewing over 1,000 nocturnal animals from 120 different species in the nighttime tropical jungle.
Jurong Bird Park

Fun and educational shows include the Birds n Buddies Show and the Thunderstorm Experience.
Adventure Cove Waterpark
Adventure Cove Waterpark is a great place to cool off in the heat and humidity of Singapore. There are six waterslides to choose from, plus a wave pool and the winding Adventure River inner tube ride. A water play area is great for the little ones and you can even go snorkeling on a reef.
Singapore River Cruise
A boat ride along the Singapore River is a fun and relaxing way to take in the sights of the Colonial District, Marina Bay and the Quays. Sit back and watch the colonial buildings and modern high rises pass you by as you listen to the onboard commentary.
Singapore Cable Car
The Singapore Cable Car is the most fun way to get to Sentosa Island. Start at Harbourfront centre and ride up Mount Faber and take in the views, before re-boarding the cable car to cross over to Sentosa, where you can ride all the way to Siloso Beach.
The Singapore Flyer is one of the world’s tallest observation wheels and offers unparalleled views across Singapore and as far as Malaysia and the islands of Indonesia. Standing at 165m tall, it is the height of a 42-storey building and the journey takes 30 minutes.
