Need help to schedule 4 day singapore trip

We are hoping to visit Singapore on a budget tight schedule of 4 nights 5 days in April. 2 families with 4 adults and 2 children.

I have some questions that i need to get clarified.

1. Does it require 1 whole day to finish the important parts of the SEA aquarium.

2.Is the Singapore zoo worthwhile to visit considering the tight schedule.

3.Does it require 1 full day to finish the 4D rides, dolphin lagoon, underwater world and songs of the sea in sentosa.

4.If not needed 1 full day can we finish all the above mentioned and SEA aquarium in one day (except zoo).

5.Is the night safari and jurong bird park worthwhile?

The places we are hoping to visit are, 4D rides, dolphin lagoon, underwater world, songs of the sea, night safari, light show at gardens by the bay, singapore flyer, universal studio, jurong bird park, SEA aquarium.

If anyone knows please tell me the showtimes of these events.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could prepare an itinerary for me.

Pls suggest a two star at about 80USD if u know.

Thanks to anyone who can help.

You need only 1 to 2h for SEA. Are you animal lovers? If you are, then you can consider doing the zoo, Night Safari or Jurong Bird Park.

On TA, we are all fellow travellers so no such service is available here, fee or no fee. You are encouraged to plan your draft itinerary and then post it here for fine-tuning.

Hotels here are priced in SGD so can you do the currency conversion when indicating your budget?

>>Day 2 – Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari<<

I think you should do the Singapore Zoo and Night Safari separately as it will be quite a long day and you are better off heading back to your hotel for a rest before dinner.

>>Day 3 – Universal Studios, Gardens byi the bay light show

Day 4 – Singapore Flyer, SEA aquarium, Shopping<<

USS and SEA can be done together since they are both on Sentosa and SEA is only 2h at most. Try to do these two on a weekday when it will be less crowded.

Singapore Flyer and Gardens By The Bay are close so you can do these together too. There are a few other attractions in the proximity like Helix Bridge, MBS, Merlion Park, Clarke Quay etc. You can also consider adding areas with local ethnic flavour like Chinatown and Arab Quarters to your itinerary.

Hi Striker X

Day 1 - For Sentosa, most tourists typically pencil one full day for USS & another day for the other island attractions (3 hours max at one single place). So yes, it's possible to cramp the latter together, including moving the SEA aquarium visit to here. Maybe slot the 4D Adventureland (it closes later than the others) & the Songs of the Sea (7:40pm & 8:40pm showtimes) lower on your daily schedule.

Day 2 - FYI Jurong is out in the west; the other wildlife parks are in the north. The zoo requires at least 6 hours for full value; the bird park about 3 hours. Both are definitely worth the trek. The night safari is more of a novelty, decide yourself if such a nocturnal experience is a must-do. Don't underestimate the fatigue factor too, especially after a full day outside in the sun.

Day 3 - Switch the Singapore Flyer ride to here. The waterfront has lots of other attractions, & is connected to Boat Quay/Clarke Quay/Robertson Quay on one side & the underground-linked Marina Bay & City Hall shopping malls on another. Can go sightseeing via amphibious cruiser (Ducktour) or bumboat too. Bring your passports to enter the MBS casino for free.

Day 4 - Do your shopping erstwhile at the huge Vivocity mall (opposite Sentosa on the mainland side) if time is tight.

Hope it helps, this itinerary makes more sense to me.

Day 1 - arrival (morning), Marina Bay (daytime & night)

Day 2 - Sentosa-others (daytime & night)

Day 3 - zoo or bird park (daytime), maybe night safari (night)

Day 4 - Sentosa-USS (daytime), departure (night)

Since our departure is at night is there any place where we can keep our baggage after checking out of the hotel at noon. Our hotel is Hotel 81 tristar.

Most hotels will be happy to hold the luggage after check out. Check with them. If not, you may have to check in your luggage (if early check in is available for your flight) before going back to the city.
