    All of these sound like great ideas for families, and I’m sure kids really like the water park attractions (I loved those when I was a kid). For me, the gardens and the museum would be the top choices, I know very little about Singapore’s history and museums are such a great place to start to help ground you in your destination.

      Those are definitely my top two choices as well!

    I’d like to visit Singapore someday, but I didn’t realize how many family-friendly attractions there are! The ArtScience Museum interests me, but I bet if I were traveling with kids, the theme parks and water parks would be of interest too.

    I miss Sg! I used to work there in 2008 until recession hit. I love everything about Singapore. A lot of new things has been erected since I left. I haven’t been to Universal Studios and the Gardens by the Bay. Was it already there in 2013? Hopefully I could visit it again and eat all the yummy noodles at any kopitiam.

    Singapore looks like a great place for a family vacation! I feel like a week of stay is not enough to make the best out of the city. My husband would love to visit this place. Would share this to him and maybe convince him to save up for a trip here!
