Travelling with children can be a daunting experience, but in a city run as exceedingly well as Singapore it simply doesn’t get easier than this. A family trip to Singapore might feel like you’ve stepped into a dream; clean, efficient, convenient and safe it offers an Asian travel experience without the grunge and chaos of many of its counterparts. From a practical standpoint travelling Singapore with children checks all the boxes; efficient public transport and zero language barrier, the convenience of major public spaces being buggy-friendly and changing facilities that are widely available. As for the question of what to do in Singapore with kids, it’s easy to navigate with little babies and toddlers, endlessly entertaining for young children and a perfectly safe place to let your teenagers loose, Singapore is a wonderland waiting to captivate the imaginations of children of all ages. I personally have no children but even after decades in the Lion City, the beautiful beaches, gardens, the surreal futuristic structures, and endless entertainment choices never cease to make me feel like a kid. With so many things to do in Singapore with kids, and so many desirable kid friendly places, it’s a challenge to narrow it down, but I have tried my best!
