With a Singapore Attractions Pass, you are allowed to enter some of the popular Singapore attractions for free. You could plan your own itinerary with the list of attractions provided by the Attractions Pass. You may also visit all the attractions in one, two, three or five days, all depends on your tour schedule and budget.
Personally, I had used this Attractions Pass once with my family and found it very valuable for money. Hence I strongly recommend this Pass to anyone who plans to visit Singapore. However, is Singapore Attractions Pass for you and your family? First, check out the list of attractions that are included in the Pass. Then review a real two-day tour itinerary which I had planned for my family with this Pass. Finally, for those who are too busy to sit down and plan a tour, check out this ready for use two-day tour itinerary.
The Pass provides free admission to all the following attractions:
1. Must-experience Singapore Attractions:
2. World Class Wild Life Park
4. Guided Tour
5. Family Fun Activities
Note that the above listed prices (all in Singapore dollars) after each attraction indicates the attraction's admission charges if you were to buy each attraction tickets separately.
1. Singapore Flyer (in Marina Bay area)
Guest Services Lounge
Level 1, Singapore Flyer
30 Raffles Avenue
Opening Hours: 8.30am to 10.30pm
Nearest MRT: Promenade station
2. 313@Somerset Shopping Mall (in Orchard Road)
Basement 1, 313@Somerset Mall

Whether you arrive at 313 @Somerset mall by MRT or car, look out for Lift Lobby B to go to basement 1. You will see the Concierge Desk once you walk out of the lift. You may also look out for Zara or Cotton On shops as the Concierge is located just next to these shops. If you arrive here by car, you will have to take the car park lift at level 6 or 7 to level 5 and then cross over to the other side of the lifts which will take you to basement 1.
The following is the two-day tour itinerary I had planned for my 13 years old niece with the 2-Day Singapore Attractions Pass when she came to Singapore from China for a week vacation.
8.30-12pm Bedok Forest Adventure
Most tourist don't know where is Bedok and true enough it's located far away from most tourist attractions. If you drive or prepare to take a taxi there, this adventurous play ground could be the most excited and fun things to do in Singapore for you and your children.
1. You need to book an appointment by phone or through Forest Adventure website.
2. The attraction is in Bedok Reservoir Park. You can park your car in the Bedok Reservoir Park's car park and take another 5 to 10 mins walk along a cement path to reach there.
Bedok Reservoir Park's car park
Follow this cement path to Forest Adventure
3. Prepare a set of spare clothing as you are likely to get your clothing mess with sands for the flying fox.
Fly over the Bedok Reservoir with the Grand Course Flying Fox
4. The Pass is for the Grand Course which consists of four sites, each site would take about half an hour to complete. Children with a height of 1.4m can also go for the grand course, however each child must be accompanied by an adult. Small kids with a height of at least 1.1m can take the Kids Course. For more information on the height restrictions and things to take note, please visit Forest Adventure official website.
5. Initially, I do not intend to include this attraction in my itinerary as it's far out of the way from most attractions. Luckily I did, as this is the one that my family members enjoyed the most among all the attractions we had visited.
12-1.30pm Lunch @YY Cafe (including travelling time)
This cafe is famous for its chicken rice and coffee. If you have had enough chicken rice, go for its zi char. Get a menu from one of the restaurant helper and pick your favouite local dishes like sweet and sour fish, oyster omellete etc. Each small dish charged at an average of S$6 to $8.
1.30-3pm Mint Museum of toys
More on: Mint Museum of Toys Photos
Need to use the Singapore Attractions Pass to exchange ticket at the customer service desk. The desk is hide behind a restaurant. So instead of looking for the Mint Museum, it's more easier to spot Mr Punch restaurant.
3-4pm A short break at home
As River Safari is very near to my home, we took a short break at home. It's advisable to find a cosy place to rest for a while as the whole day schedule is very tight.
4-6 pm River Safari
1. Need to redeem tickets at the Singapore Zoo's ticket booths in order to enter River Safari park. If you intend to visit more than one wildlife parks, you may redeem all the park's tickets at one go. There are two express counters(1 and 2) which are specially caters for this Pass. However you can only redeem the ticket on the day you intend to visit the park, not any earlier date.
2. River safari boat ride are likely to sold out in the late afternoon, so get your tickets as early as possible.
6-7pm Dinner @Singapore Zoo's KFC
7-11pm Night Safari
Plan your tour as follow if you faced very long queue for the tram the moment you enter the park (this normally happened on weekend and public holidays between 7 and 9pm):
11-3pm Underwater World Singapore and Dolphin Lagoon
It's obvious that why we started late as we 'play' really late the previous night.
1. Take note of the Dolphin show timing before heading there.
2. Getting There: Take Sentosa Express and alight at Siloso station, then transfer to bus No.2 from the nearby bus interchange. Alight after two bus stops at Underwater world.
3. Need to exchange tickets at the Underwater World ticketing booth.
3-4pm Lunch at McDonald
4-5.30pm Luge and Skyride
More on: Luge and Skyride Photos
1. Combo ticket at $12 for the Pass instead of $15. Need to exchange ticket at the ticketing booth. Top up $8 more and you can have 3 rides for the Luge and Skyrides.
2. McDonald and ToastBox restaurants are just a short distance away at the iFly attraction building, you can plan for a late lunch or quick meal here.
5.30-6.30pm Travelling to Singapore Flyer
6.30-7.30pm Singapore Flyer
Need to exchange for tickets at the Customer Service Lounge, NOT at the ticketing booth.
7.30-8.30pm Dinner at Singapore Flyer's Food Trial at level 1
1. Expect long queues at few of the popular stalls especially during lunch and dinner times.
2. I highly recommend this local food centre to all, the food here is good and the prices are reasonable.
8.30-9.30pm Singapore River Cruise
More on: Singapore River Cruise Video
1. Although there are few boarding jetty along the Singapore River, you are only allow to board at Clarke Quay jetty for the Singapore Attractions Pass.
2. I recommend you to plan for a night cruise as the night scene in Marina Bay area is awesome and the weather at night is more cooling. The waiting time for the night cruise is around 10 to 15 minutes. The cruise takes about 40 minutes.
After the cruise, you may want to spend some time at Clarke Quay as it's one of the popular nightspots in Singapore. Check out where to chill out in Clarke Quay. If you are a thrill seeker, don't miss out the GX5 Extreme Swing in Clarke Quay.
