The city offers several very family friendly hotels, including the gorgeous Shangri-La Hotel Singapore with a children's pool and child-care services. The Marina Bay Sands resort is also an excellent option. They offer a Kid's Club for children ages 6 and up. Both hotels made the Five Star Alliance's list of the best kid-friendly hotels in Singapore. For budget-conscious travellers, CityHub in Little India area is a good choice.


Family Vacation Guide Day 1

Singapore has three fantastic wildlife parks that are sure to delight both children and grown-ups alike, so plan to spend your first day and night exploring those. Get up early and head to the Singapore Zoo, which opens at 8:30am, and eat your breakfast in the company of some friendly orang utans in the Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife programme, which runs from 9-10:30am. This is sure to be an experience your child never forgets. 

After breakfast, get ready to embark on a journey around the world of animals. If you have small children, you can rent a stroller or wagon to help you get around easier.

The zoo features over 300 different species of animals, from the silly splashing otters to the dignified,  majestic elephants, so you could spend the whole day just checking out the wildlife, but if you want to let your children splash around a bit and enjoy some hands-on activities, stop in at the Rainforest Kidzworld

The unique carousel features fantastical creatures rather than traditional horses, and the Kampung House allows kids to rifle through cabinets and drawers. No need to worry if you forgot the sunscreen and fun swimming accessories, the gift shop sells just about everything you need for some impromptu fun in the sun.

Later in the afternoon, head to the Jurong Bird Park, where your dinosaur-lovers will learn about the fascinating similarities between today's birds and the ancient winged beasts and embark on an archeological dig of their own to uncover fossils from millions of years ago.

Penguin Coast is also a must for children, and features six different species of the tuxedo birds. Get there at feeding time (various time slots) and your children can help the zoo staff feed these fun-loving birds.

Before leaving, take the family for a stroll through Parrot Paradise and enjoy the colourful array of 92 different species of parrots. Many parrot species are becoming extinct in the wild, and Jurong Bird Park is taking measures to help ensure this doesn't happen.

When the sun goes down, head over to the Night Safari for some after-hours animal excitement. Catch the live Creatures of the Night Show and enjoy a twenty minutes spectacular display of nocturnal animals acting on their basic instincts. 

After the show, hop on the tram and tour through the park to see how other animals behave at night. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to show your children what goes on in the animal kingdom long after they've gone to bed for the night.
