The Travelius Book a direct flight to Singapore and try and get there early to make the most of your short vacation. Begin your holiday in Singapore’s cultural heart – Chinatown. Dotted with pagodas, mosques and shops, it is a bustling ethnic neighbourhood. You can take a walking tour of Chinatown or if your visit coincides with either the Singapore Heritage Festival or Mid Autumn Festival, you’ll have plenty to do. Shop for some ethnic products and artifacts here. Then, head to Kreta Ayer’s Food Street or to one of the trendy restaurants in Telok Ayer for lunch. Visit Orchard Road, Singapore’s shopping district, for high-end shopping in world-class malls housing multi-national brands. Orchard road gets it’s name from the all the surrounding orchards that existed during the 20th century. After rehabilitation, The Orchard Road is flanked by pedestrian shopping centres, upmarket cafes, coffee chains, nightclubs and hotels. It is also the official site of residence and office of the President of Singapore, The Istana. Later in the evening, head to Singapore’s number one nightspot – the unique Night Safari; this is the world’s first wildlife park that you can visit at night. A guided tram ride takes you through 40 hectares of lush forests where you can see animals in their natural habitats of Human tropical rain-forests that is only open at night. The park is divided into seven geographical zones, which can be explored via different means. If you prefer, you can go on a walking trail where you will come up close to leopards, badgers and civets. The Wallaby Trail is the newest addition to the Night Safari that takes you through the Australian outback to see some fascinating nocturnal animals.
Singapore is a fabulous place for a vacation, especially with kids. There are just so many attractions and things to do. I am sure you could spend a couple of weeks and still leave Singapore with things on your list for next time. It is just such an easy place to visit with a fabulous transportation system and with english the common language. It is also neat, tidy and orderly. I am struggling to think of a country that is easier to travel to and within with kids.
Earlier this month, S and I had an awesome 5 day/5 night vacation in Singapore. This article will share with you what we did during that time, how I managed travelling with a 4 year old alone and hopefully it will also inspire you to add Singapore to your own family travel bucket list as well as give you some ideas of what you can do when you get there.
