Day 2 is impossible - there's nearly two full days in the bird park and zoo alone and doing the night safari at the end of a long day especially with a child gives a high risk of a poor experience at the night safari. That day has to be reorganised. In a shor visit like this I would tend to suggest that at most you do two of the wildlife parks to get more o fthe rest of Singapore in.

Day 4 is very empty - there is a lot more you could do on Sentosa to fill it - just going over for Underwater World seems a bit of a lost opportunity.

Day 1 is fairly light as well - you could use it to shuffle

1/ <<DAY 2) zoo + bird park +night safari>>

Suicidal running there-and-back again. Neither wise, nor doable.

2/ <<DAY 5)-- Bintaan for next 3 days>>

What do you really expect from Bintan for 3 days????? Anyone can get bored over there after half an hour.

How about :

Day 1) Singapore Flyer + Cruise (Since we r reaching on this day morning so dont want to do too much )

Day 2) Zoo and Night Safari (is the night safari in the same zoo? is it a good exp for a kid please advice)

Day 3) Santosa + Bird Park + China tOwn (Is it ok to do these two in one day ..are these places near each other )

Day 4) Universal Studio

Since we r spending 4 days roaming around so we decided to go to Bintaan on last two days of trip just to take it at ease

Please guide

Thanks

The zoo AND Night Safari in one very, very long day is ''doable'', but I wouldn't do it, and the little one, taking account of the extreme heat/humidity, might find it too much, as might the adults.

Just my opinion.

You are still trying to squeeze too much into the limited time you have.

The three wildlife parks in such a short time is simply too much, as Alan says the Zoo and Night Safari together on one day is taking a large risk of not enjoying the Night Safari.

Of the parks the Night Safari is the least child friendly for younger kids because of its late night nature. It is a separate attraction to the zoo, situated right next door but different grounds and different exhibits so it is different. If you particularly want to see it then it is doable but you want to spend a lighter day in preparation - wander the city area to see some of the monuments or museums - something inside means you will not be drained for the Night Safari. Maybe a late rise and a trip to the science centre and then to the Night Safari would work well....anything so at 9pm or so your 4 year old is still wanting to walk calmly round the Night Safari and wait patiently to see the animals....

Next up - Sentosa other than Universal can fill a couple of days, but a full day is a sensible time scale, especially if targetting things for small children as well as adults and the Bird Park is nearly a full day. Add on Chinatown and again you are trying to put nearly 2 days worth of activity into one day. Something has to give way....as for location - the Bird Park

So you still need to trim the itinerary - I'd suggest cutting the wildlife parks down to one park would give you a lot more reasonable timings. Which one is really down to you - there are advantages and disadvantages to all of them.

I dont think you need 3 days in Bintan. A day trip will do. If not, 1 night stay at the resort.

Putting it simply less is often more.
