A Family Trip in Downtown Singapore

Singapore was the first country that came to our mind when we thought of a country that could cater to our large group of family and friends. There are many things to do in Singapore and activities that cater to all ages, perfect for a large family. 


  • The Children’s wildest imagination at I Fly Singapore & S.E.A Aquarium

  • A splashing good time at Adventure Cove

  • A trip downtown to Universal Studios Singapore and the Singapore Flyer

Day 1

The Children’s wildest imagination at I Fly Singapore & S.E.A Aquarium

As a big group, we were concerned with communication and accessibility, even in a country with high internet access and connectivity. So, before we embarked on our activities, we decided to buy airport SIM cards for convenience. The travel to the beautiful Sentosa Island was a pleasant experience, capturing the sights of the famous helix bridge and the Singapore Flyer from our car’s window. There were even gasps from the children driving along the expressway. After we checked in to the  Festive Hotel, the first attraction we visited was I Fly Singapore, where individuals have a chance to free-fly like actual skydiving. We loved that it was an activity enjoyed by all ages including our 3-year-old little daughter as well as my mother. We decided to have lunch at Marrybrown, a fast food chain just around the corner that sells a Malay fusion of fried chicken and rice. 

Next, we took the monorail from the Beach Station to Resorts World Station to visit the famous S.E.A Aquarium. It boasts more than 100,000 marine animals. We loved the sea jellies' habitat with dreamy colours, it was truly therapeutic looking at them. The kids enjoyed the touch pool which gives you the chance to gently touch the sea stars. You cannot miss the centrepiece of the Aquarium, the Open Ocean habitat. All of us sat and stare in fascination at the ocean scenery beyond the spotless glass panels. It was also very educational because we all learnt the names of many new marine creatures.

Day 2

A splashing good time at Adventure Cove

The next day started bright and early as we headed to Adventure Cove. The water park is one of a kind because it lets you snorkel with marine species! It is a place that can be enjoyed by everyone. The kids are thrill-seekers that enjoyed the high-speed water slides and the Riptide Rocket with plunging drops and sharp turns. While the adults hung around the winding lazy river that gave us some respite away from the kids. An activity enjoyed by all is definitely the Rainbow Reef which provided the opportunity to swim with 20,000 friendly tropical fish. We hung out at the water park till it was closing time around 5 pm, it was such a fun day that the kids could not bear to leave the place. The park worked up an appetite and we decided to end the day with authentic Asian street food that had the best ‘Wok Hey’ taste! The Fried King Prawn Hor Fun w Mushroom & Onsen Egg was the most popular dish around the table

Day 3

A trip downtown to Universal Studios Singapore and the Singapore Flyer

This was the last full day in Singapore and we wanted to end our last activity at Sentosa Island with a bang! So, we headed to Universal Studios Singapore. The theme park has seven uniquely-designed zones, each themed after icons of the movie world. The most fun ride among the family was the famous TRANSFORMERS The Ride: The Ultimate 3D Battle ride, where you fight evil forces in heart-pounding 3D combat. The thrill seekers in the family loved the Mummies ride, an indoor roller coaster in total darkness. Screaming from the rollercoaster rides worked up an appetite so we walked to Mel’s Drive-in, an American-themed diner serving burgers and hot dogs. It felt like we were back in time to the 50s. The Crispy Chicken Burger was crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. After lunch, we visited Far Far Away to catch the Shrek 4-D Adventure attraction. It was a cinematic experience that allows visitors to physically feel the action of the movie. 

After half the day spent at Universal Studios Singapore, we took the Singapore cable car back to the main island to Harbourfront. It is only a 15-minute drive from Harbourfront to the Singapore Flyer. Located in the heart of downtown Marina Bay, the Singapore Flyer is Asia’s largest giant observation wheel. It is the go-to attraction for the most magnificent views of the city. It takes you 165 meters above ground, as high as 42 storeys. Feast your eyes on iconic historical sites from the Singapore River and Merlion Park. Back on the ground, an authentic Indian meal is a must-have at Red Chillies, a truly great way to end the day!
