    Singapore

    We're planning a short 3 day trip to Singapore with my 15.5 month old. Any suggestions for fun things to do with a toddler. We've already got the zoo down on our list...just looking for one or two more fun things to do. Thanks!

    The bird park was also a big hit with our toddler!

    Lots to do, very child friendly place! At the zoo, you must take his swimsuit (& yours too), they have a really nice water play area at the kid's section (where the petting zoo part is). Also, you can take him around with you, to clark quay/boat quay they have a bumboat ride down the river, take a Duck tour. There is a great indoor park/playroom called eXplorerkid (eXplorerkid) which is perfect for a hot day. Sentosa is also nice, underwater world, etc. Take the monorail from Vivo mall. Check out this website for more ideas: Singapore For Kids!
    Enjoy!

    Singapore Zoo
    Jurong Bird Park
    Beaches on Sentosa Island
    Universal Studios

    Jacob Balans Children's Garden in the Botanical Gardens
    Lots of indoor playrooms but you usually need a membership (Fidgets, Royce Gym, The Forum)
    Paragon Mall has a plyground in the mall
    Vivo City has a playground in the middle
    West Coast Park
    East Coast Park
    Cruise down the river and walk along the Quays (Clarke, Robertson etc...)
    Double-decker bus tour of the city

    Highly recommend the Singapore Zoo as a must do!! My son (15 months when he went) LOVED it! Especially the water play area in the children's section - bring your swim suits!!

    the water is great for kids, but my son is 32 months and is not a total fan of it. He prefers the playground next door to it.

    we just came back from our first trip to singapore a couple weeks ago. We spent a whole day at the zoo (fantastic!), and my kids (7 & 3) LOVED the water play area. It was so hot that day I was wishing I had brought my suit, too! I just watched them from the side. We also went to the Jacob Ballas Children's garden, but I wasn't that impressed by it. Maybe, because it was also such a hot day that it was too hard to be out there for too long. We spent a day at Universal Studios, but be forewarned that some attractions are still under construction, and so there are a lot of roller coasters that young kids can't go on, and not too many rides that they can. My 3 year old was tall enough to ride the small roller coaster in Far Far Away, but it was definitely too wild for her! (In fact, it made my 7 year old cry!) But the shows are great, especially the Donkey Live show. Hilarious. We also spent a day at Sentosa: Palawan beach (really good!!), went inside the Merlion, rode the skyride (kind of lame) and the Luge (Really fun!). I wish we had another day or two because there were so many fun things.
    All the best,
    Katie
