    Easy to get from Sentosa to the other sites of Singapore (without a car)? Places like the airport, Orchard Road and the Colonial district, etc...

    Thanks for all the super suggestions so far. Wondering, if it's just a 2 day/1 night transit stop on the way to somewhere - is it still realistic to take bub to the Singapore zoo (say on a Sunday afternoon) or does one need a whole day at the zoo.

    If that's the only thing we'll do then where is good to stay -any recommendations that are close to zoo? Thanks!

    Hi Snagito,

    Singapore Zoo is located far North on the island, and there isnt any hotel located nearby. However, you can commute by taxis to almost everywhere and the travelling time (provided there isnt any traffic jam) is not too long. if u first time there, u might spend more than half a day walking ard in the zoo.

    Places like airport, orchard road, etc can be reached using the train (MRT) , so can be very convenient if you staying near a train station.

    Oh I see! Thanks Chubbysan, that is helpful. So I think we will stick to downtown and see some friends and just hang out since we only have one full day.

    Any suggestions on how to spend a day in Singapore with a little one? Is it as hot/humid as Hong Kong is right now? Are there any indoor play centres that visitors can get into, or a good stroller friendly mall? Ideas please from all the Singaporean mums and dads!

    Thank you!!

    hi,

    I am not too sure how old your LO is but the zoo tends to be more appropriate for when they are a little older - my son's first visit at 18 months was a huge non-event, he loves animals and everything but didn't seem to be taken with anything at the zoo (maybe becos the environment was too natural?!?!)! We tried him again when he was 2 years 3 months and it was better....if you want something outdoorsy, easy to get to, stroller friendly and pleasant, I'd suggest the Botanical Gardens (opposite the American Embassy, Tanglin Road area, very near Orchard Road). It is a lovely big garden with different areas and lakes (feeding the ducks and fish - generally both babies and toddlers love that) and alot of it is shaded with giant trees if it gets too sunny.....there is also a lovely cafe or 2 there for having meals and even an airconditioned food court at the entrance if you'd like some local food - plenty of lvoely grass area to have a picnic too if you feel so inclined! And if LO protests or it gets too hot, you can leave quite easily by public transport, Orchard Road is about a brisk 10 min walk away....

    have fun and enjoy Singapore!

    hi snagito,

    yes Singapore can be like hong kong now, hot n humid. Is also abit wet now, strangely it is raining almost every day now. Yep, if this is the case, you might want to just spend your time at Orchard, catching up with your friends and at the same time, can do some shopping as well. You can try going Paragon Shopping mall, there is a play area on level 5 for kids, and a toy r us on level 6. hmm, otherwise marina square also a nice mall, newly renovated and big, plus there is another big shopping mall, Suntec City just next to it.

    have a good time in Spore!

    cheers!
