The current pandemic has really dampened our spirit. Some of us are even getting depress staying home caring for the kids whilst juggling our busy work schedule. God knows, even I need a breather from my two over actively kids. Last year during the RMCO period, I did several staycations just to get away from home to relax mind & body. Of course, I brought my kids together as they were also getting restless from being coop at home.
Recently, my kids have been watching travel documentaries and one of the places that they’re keen to visit was Singapore. With the current lockdown impose in Malaysia, it might not be possible to head over now, but I’m a firm believer of planning in advance. So, let’s start planning for my upcoming staycation in Singapore

Activities During A Staycation in Singapore
As this would be my kids first visit to Singapore, there’s plenty of activities to explore in and out of the hotel.
Playing at the pool
Can’t visit the beach, then head towards the hotel pool to have a bit of fun!
Visit city park
In Singapore there’s plenty of beautiful city park with a variety of outdoor activities available. If you’re staying at Fullerton, then walk over to Merlion Park to look at Singapore’s famous statue that has the head of a lion and the body of a fish. I’m sure my kids will be awed by this!
Let’s explore the culinary delights available in Singapore. Hence, choosing a hotel that’s located near the culinary trail areas are the best! From famous nasi lemak, chili crab, chicken rice, Teochew cuisine and many more. Feast till your heart’s content.
Visit Sentosa Island
This famous tourist destination need no further introduction. My plan is to bring the kids to visit the Underwater World aquarium and perhaps take a dip with the dolphins. Here you can also check out Siloso Beach to play volleyball, kayaking and ski boarding.
Universal Studios Singapore
A staycation in Singapore is not complete, if I didn’t bring the kids over to Universal Studios Singapore. My kids have been dreaming of visiting Universal Studios Singapore for the longest time. They can’t wait to explore the Madagascar, Lost World, Sci-Fi City, Hollywood and other thrilling rides available.
Night Safari Singapore
Another must visit place would be the Night Safari Singapore. An unforgettable zoo experience awaits by introducing visitors to the nocturnal lives of the resident as they go about their “day.” There’s private tours, buggy rides, and educational sessions are available, as well as once-in-a-lifetime experiences, such as an Asian elephant feeding session.
Marina Bay Sands
My husband is an architecture fan and Marina Bay Sands has a lot of it. The resort complex includes a high-end luxury hotel, a mall with a canal running thought it. There’s also the ArtScience Museum and the Marina Bay Sands Skypark Observation Deck. The Skypark’s viewing deck and infinity pool are found in the ship that tops the hotel. From the Skypark, you can check out the innovative double helix bridge, the port and the popular Gardens by the Bay.
Gardens by the Bay
Enjoy the vibrant plant life and escape from the bustle of city at the Bay East Garden. Other things to spot is the Supertree Grove that features a cluster of iconic, futuristic structures. Last but not least, the Cloud Forest Dome to see the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.
