Universal Studios 

Obviously, Universal Studios should be on the list of places to visit. The theme park is hugely according to popular films produced by the Universal Studios. Roller coasters, science fiction rides, action adventure rides, river boats, and 3D battles are all found inside this large theme park. If you need to take a break from all of that adrenaline, you can always stop by New York or Hollywood to watch an amazing street performance. On Saturdays, there is also a spectacular fireworks show at Lake Hollywood. 

You will feel like the whole island is there with you on your trip, so expect a lot of foot traffic and long lines. As a recommendation, you can buy the tickets online and then arrive at exactly 10:00 AM for the opening. 

Sentosa 

Sentosa is a classic Singapore spot. The Universal Studios theme park is featured here, but there are other highlights in Sentosa you should visit. For instance, this is the place where you can go to Fort Siloso, a long-sheltered beach, and the Merlion. You can also visit Resorts World Sentosa and watch stage performances or plays if any are scheduled during your trip. 

Night Safari 

Another favorite Singapore attraction is the Night Safari, the world’s first nocturnal zoo. It is an open-air zoo set in a humid tropical forest which is divided into seven geographical zones. It features animals like pangolins, tarsiers, elephants, rhinoceros, and tigers.  

Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden 

Your kids will appreciate a trip to the Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden. It features educational areas like the Magic of Photosynthesis area. They can also have fun at waterworks area, the maze in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, and the sandpit. There is also a Kidz Cafe where there are tiny tables and chairs set up for the kids. You can also get your dose of caffeine so you can match the energy of your kids at Da Paolo Gastronomica at Cluny Court. And you know what, access to the garden is free!
