One of the best kid-friendly destinations in Asia, Singapore is a delight to visit with the entire family. And for good reason; because things to do in Singapore with kids are aplenty - it has magnificent gardens, funtastic adventure and theme parks, exciting trampoline parks and lush, tropical outdoors that offer superb hiking and camping opportunities. Singapore is a vibrant country that’s constantly evolving and reinventing itself. And if you are planning on visiting the Lion City, here are some of the best places to visit in Singapore for kids.
7 Reasons Why Singapore Is The Best Destination To Visit With Your Kids
Reason 1 - Parks and gardensHome to over 350 parks and gardens, Singapore is nestled amid lush greenery. And if you are wondering where to go with kids in Singapore, just stop wondering, pack a picnic basket and head over to any one of these parks! Some recommended parks include:
- the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Singapore Botanic Gardens
- the futuristic Gardens by the Bay
- the charming Bukit Batok Nature Park
- the serene Changi Beach Park
- the amiable Japanese Garden
- the fun Lakeside Garden
- if you are in the mood for some kayaking and fishing, the Pasir Ris Town Park
- While at it, you should also visit the colourfully unique Jurong Bird Park which is home to some exotic birds like macaws, penguins, black-faced spoonbills and hornbills
Reason 2 - The Singapore ZooOne of the things for kids to do in Singapore is visiting the Singapore Zoo. The world's best rainforest zoo, the Singapore Zoo is home to orangutans, lions, giraffes, rabbits, Asian elephants, cheetahs, Malayan tapirs and naked mole rats, and is a pretty impressive place. Keep aside an entire day for this zoo’s visit if you plan on witnessing all the shows that the zoo puts up for its visitors. Activities you can undertake with your kids at the Singapore Zoo include feeding the animals, going on wildlife tours and even chit-chatting with the animal keepers.
Reason 3 - The farm life!
What if we tell you that your Singapore holiday with kids must include a visit to a farm? Will you laugh at us? Yes, we know that Singapore is not known for its agriculture. And although less than one percent of Singapore’s land area is used for farming, it does have its fair share of farms that are open to tourists (sort of like agrotourism). You can visit the Quan Fa Organic Farm to know the entire process of growing and harvesting vegetables, or the Bollywood Veggies farm to get a guided tour of its Food Museum, or the Jurong Frog Farm if you are into that sort of thing, or the Khai Seng Fish Farm to know where your fresh fish comes from.View this post on Instagram
