Family of 5 - 3 kids age 8, 13, 15 visits for 2 wks August!

There is plenty of info on the site but I would be very pleased to hear of everyone's must do's with a family of one boy and two girls - to keep them away from their mobile phones! Thank you for your help in advance.

Hello, Universal Studios Singapore, attractions and beaches on Sentosa should keep them busy a day or two. A day trip on Pulau Ubin for nature and biking. The girls would love shopping Bugis market and Haji Lane. The boy may be interested by Funan IT mall. There are a lot of souvenir shops in Chinatown.

Animal parks are great to visit: Zoo, River Safari, Night Safari, Jurong Bird Park.

Here some additional ideas: yoursingapore.com/content/…family-fun.html

Brilliant. I will take a look at these now. I think I will go for a bike ride with my son and send the girls shopping!

Universal Studios would be great for them, plus they may like the Luge and Adventure Cove water park on Sentosa. My kids are 16 and 9 and they both loved the new S.E.A Aquarium there too. Sentosa will take at least 2 days out of your holiday, 1 day for Universal and 1 day for other activities.

I spent 3 days in Sentosa.

1 day at Universal Studios, 1 day for Adventure Cove & SEA Aquarium, then the last day with the Sentosa pass to cover all the other mini attractions.

All looks great. Universal on the list and I will show the kids the others - well, perhaps not!! - I will decide!

A caution about Pulau Ubin. Its hilly terrain isn't consistently suitable for recreational cycling, & by that I mean going helmetless, riding tandem bicycles, sightseeing on the go, rudimentary MTB skills, etc. Despite adding safety signs, convex mirrors & road humps, accidents are fairly commonplace there, even the occasional fatality.

For the more casual cyclist, East Coast Park has a tamer trail (flat, long, scenic, amenities-friendly).
