Itinerary advice

Hello

I will be in Singapore from 12th June (will be landing in the morning at 6 am) to 19th June.

4 adults + 2 kids (4.5 year old twin daughters). We are staying at Somerset Liang Court at Clarke Quay.

Purpose of the trip - Holiday for kids + select shopping at outlet malls for the ladies. I want to have a relaxed trip.. not a hectic one.

I have shortlisted the following:

USS

SEA Aquarium

Wings of Time at Siloso, Sentosa

Singapore Zoo

Gardens by the Bay

Future World at Marina Bay Sands

Spectra Light Show at Marina Bay Sands

Singapore Flyer

Cable Car to Sentosa

Science centre (at Jurong, I think)

IMM Mall, Anchor Point, IKEA, Vivocity, Orchard Road

My queries are as follows:

1) What do you suggest I do on Day 1 - 12 June, as we will be tired after an overnight flight of 6 hours? The hotel will give check-in by 3 pm.

2) Any suggested itinerary, given the fact that Friday will be a holiday

3) Any other places that you recommend as a must-see

4) What is the best way to travel - I am assuming 2 public taxis, as MRT would be time consuming and private taxis will need car seats... but wanted to cross-check.

5) Do you think renting a stroller for a week is recommended

Thanks in advance.

Mohit

1) What do you suggest I do on Day 1 - 12 June, as we will be tired after an overnight flight of 6 hours? The hotel will give check-in by 3 pm.

Gardens By the Bay, Future World at Marina Bay Sands, Spectra Light Show at Marina Bay Sands. Drop your bags at the hotel, head out for breakfast, then go to Gardens By the Bay. Back to your hotel for 3pm checkin, rest and freshen up, then go to Future World at Marina Bay Sands followed by Spectra Light Show at Marina Bay Sands. There is a light show at GBB also, so you could pop back to GBB for the light show at the Super Tree Grove at 7.40pm before going back to MBS for the Spectra Light Show at 9pm.

2) Any suggested itinerary, given the fact that Friday will be a holiday

I would suggest Zoo for Friday. As for the rest, USS is one day, Sentosa is one day, Singapore Science Centre is usually 3/4 to a full day and you could probably do the malls on a day too since the malls you listed aren't that close to one another.

3) Any other places that you recommend as a must-see

Botanic Gardens, Orchid Garden. Not sure which other places you would be interested in.

4) What is the best way to travel - I am assuming 2 public taxis, as MRT would be time consuming and private taxis will need car seats... but wanted to cross-check.

2 taxis

5) Do you think renting a stroller for a week is recommended

Most attractions would have strollers for rental.

Public holidays are a good time for shopping due to sales.

The river cruise jetty is very near your accommodation so you may want to do it on one of the days. Night time would be magical when the buildings and bridges are lit.

Thanks for the responses.

I managed to get an early check-in, so resting in the hotel now. Will head out post lunch.
