By: shimin on 21 Jan 2013
Day 1

Head to Jurong Bird Park and learn more about birds as you stroll through the trails of the largest bird park in the world. Exhibits include the Lory Loft Aviary and Dinosaur Descendants. Kids will love the Birds of Prey Show and Birds and Buddies Show, but do remember to get there at least 5 minutes before the show starts to get the best seats. The Park Hopper package also allows visitors to visit both the Zoo and the Night Safari.

If you have a little Einstein in the family, bring him (or her) to the Science Centre next. With the wide array of interactive exhibits, children will learn about environmental sustainability, the physics of sound, and the science of optical illusions – the fun way, of course. 

After a fun-filled day, pop by the Night Safari to learn more about nocturnal animals. There are eight trails to choose from, ranging from the Fishing Cat Trail to the Forest Trail. Children will love the Creatures of The Night show, which occurs at 7.30 pm, 8.30 pm and 9.30 pm. There are additional shows at 10.30pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and eves of Public Holidays. Like the Jurong Bird Park, go early to get the best seats.

Day 2

Make your way to Universal Studios Singapore. Touted as Southeast Asia's first movie theme park, this fun-filled place has 7 zones, each named after popular movies and genres. Children will enjoy the Lake Hollywood Spectacular, which is a musical number that ends with fireworks.

Walk to the Marine Life Park and learn more about your undersea friends at this new attraction, which houses 12 species of sharks and 100 000 animals. There’s even a panoramic viewing panel for those who can’t get enough of sea creatures. Check out the Adventure Cove Waterpark, which is just next to it. Children will love the 6 waterslides and the family can get up close and personal with the fish with reef snorkeling.

Head to the MegaZip Adventure Park for some thrills. Apart from swinging down from the zipline like Tarzan, visitors can climb a rock face, which caters for rock climbers of all ages and levels. Enjoy the parajump, which involves freefalling from a parachute.

Another fun activity at Sentosa is the Skyline Luge, or the Luge for short. Similar to go-karting and bumper cars, this activity involves sliding down the hill at great speed. Feel the wind in your hair and dodge those who try to bump into you.

Day 3

Start the day with a walk through the Gardens By The Bay, as this attraction truly makes Singapore a Garden City. Its cool conservation areas, or “Cloud Forest,” showcases flora that thrive within these temperatures. Venture into the Flower Dome, which resembles a large Mediterranean garden. Have lunch at one of those restaurants in the area and make your way to Wild Wild Wet.

Wild Wild Wet is definitely the best water theme park in Singapore. It's definitely a crowd pleaser with a wide variety of rides for children and adults. Get ready for an adrenalin rush with the water slides, or relax at one of the jacuzzis.

Catch the sunset at East Coast Park. This park is great for family fun outdoors, with skate and bike rental places. Children can build sandcastles on the beach, fly kites, or reel in a catch at the jetties.

End the day by jumping on one of these Duck and Hippo Tour buses. View the city from the comfort of the top deck and be enamoured by the view of the bay and the city's historical landmarks.
