One day

We were in Singapore in October and spent 3 days on Sentosa. We did not see anything else in Singapore (aside from the cable car to Mt Faber).

This year, in April, we will be arriving in Singapore at 5pm on a Saturday, staying at mecure Roxy, and not leaving until 11pm the following day.

As this full free day is a Sunday, and I know places are very crowded, are there any suggestions for a hassle free and interesting day out for myself, wife and 2 kids (6 and 9).

Thank you for your advice

Yes there will be plenty of people out and about over the weekends. Nearby your hotel is the Parkway parade shopping center and a short walk away is East Coast Park, a park fronting a long stretch of beach. Though it's not ideal for swimming you can go cycling and rollerblading, cable skiing and mini golf.

There are also quite a number of eating places like the popular hawker centre and the seafood restaurants selling chilli crab.

Take a Taxi To The Singapore Flyer in the Morning (Sunday) & walk over to Marina Bay sand, to use the Bridge to cross over to The Garden By the Bay.



For Chilli Crab, no need to travel Far, there is a really good Restaurant right across at Marine Parade Central: www.rolandrestaurant.com.sg/contact.html

Google Map for Directions. Good Place for Ur dinner before U walk back to claim ur bag to go Airport with the Hotel Free shuttles.

Or U can have Chilli crab for dinner on ur first evening. And after that just walk around the suburban shopping streets full of shop & walk over to the Big Parkway Parade Mall :D

I wouldn't go to Parkway Parade. It is usually very crowded during weekends. Especially since it is near a big residential estate. People sometimes hang out at the shopping malls just to get out of the heat.

Same with East Coast Park. Very crowded during weekends with families picnicking and enjoying the amenities such as cycling, rollerblading, etc.

I would head the other way. Go to the zoo or the Jurong Bird Park since you have not seen anything of Singapore except for Sentosa and the Cable car.
