We are a family of 5 with kids 8yo, 5yo and 5yo. We are going to Singapore in july 3 - 9 and staying with relatives.
wed - arr in afternoon. maybe rest or maybe catch a cab to the night zoo
thur - legoland staying at legoland resort
fri - legoland, hello kitty and back to singapore. sneak out at night with hubby if we are not too tired. pls recommend some funky local hangouts with nice bars or cafes. My friend recently went to KuDeta and said it was disappointing and full of tourists.
sat - Singapore Zoo or SEA Aquarium? is it anything like Seaworld on GC? we have annual passes to seaworld, movieworld, dreamworld and wet n wild, kids have been to 3 diff disneylands already, is sg zoo better than san diego zoo or taronga zoo (my fav)? I'm just theme parked out! I despise them but only go for the kids. this trip is mainly about legoland. it's also very expensive and not sure if it's worth it.
sun - suggestions please. light and fountain show
mon -thinking of checking into marina bay sands just to take the famous pic in the pool but not sure if it's really worth it and not sure if the room can fit 5 of us. I'm not paying 2 rooms and be separated from my husband.
tues -garden of the bay and surrounding area. dep at night. been before but i think worthwhile to go again.
if it was an adult holiday, we would just cafe hop and shop but this trip is all about the kids. i went last yr and realised there's so much to do in sg for kids. the only problem is the heat...personally i think my kids would prefer indoor attractions than outdoor like the science museum. they may nag if they get too hot and bothered. they're good travellers.
is universal studios worth it for young kids. i went maybe 14 yrs ago to orlando and it was awesome but i don't remember any rides for very young kids. we also go to movieworld and dreamworld has a madagascar theme too.
Shame we missed the ice sculpture show. is the singapore flyer worth it? if you having kids similar age please tell me what your kids enjoy the most. thanks
also, is it ok to catch a taxi to causeway/woodlands then find a jb taxi to take us to legoland? we are staying only 15mins taxi ride from there.
do kids 5 and above need to pay for public transport? i'm thinking its probably the same price then and more convenient to just catch a taxi everywhere. Can u still buy mrt card and top up credit? i think SG$30 for tourist card is too exxy and same price for kids. That's $150 for 5 of us! and only limited to a few days.
