Singapore Family Escape
Clean, safe, welcoming, and packed full of kid-friendly experiences: it’s as if Singapore was designed with families in mind.
There are a thousand ways you could spend five days here, but this is one of our favorites. Combining the best of Singapore’s nature, wildlife, culture and thrills — from night safaris and bike tours to interactive art and theme parks — it’s exciting, hands-on, and by no means only for kids!
Singapore is a one-stop destination, which means no transfers! While you’re here, you’ll get around on the excellent MRT (subway).
This trip is full of activities designed to make culture and nature engaging for kids
There’s plenty of variety, so no excuse to be bored!
All the included experiences are flexible, so you can choose when and how you spend your time on the day
Things to consider
The night safari is a night-time experience, so perhaps not suitable for younger children
Family rooms are rare in Singapore
This trip includes a cycling tour, but we can easily arrange something different if one of your kids can’t ride a bike
If there’s one place that encapsulates modern Singapore, it’s Marina Bay — and a cycle tour is one of our favorite ways to get to know it. Pedaling along flat, easy paths, you’ll pass giant buildings shaped like durian fruit; half-fish, half-lion fountain statues; a skyscraper topped with a ship-shaped terrace, and (of course) the legendary supertrees of Gardens by the Bay. You could spend your free afternoon exploring the shops and hawker centers of Chinatown or Little India, but save some energy for your after-hours safari through Singapore Zoo, where lions, tigers, elephants and hippos go about their business in free-range habitats.

Forget what you think you know about museums, because Singapore’s ArtScience Museum is something completely different. Housed in a distinctive lotus-shaped building, its exhibits encourage visitors to rethink the boundaries between art and science as they lose themselves in virtual reality environments, play innovative video games, make music, and explore works by world-class artists like Marina Abramović and Anish Kapoor. When you’ve seen it all, we recommend heading to the ship-shaped rooftop deck of the hotel next-door for stunning views over Singapore. Then, as night falls, don’t miss the incredible Spectra light-and-water show over the bay.
