Firstly you might want to immerse your child in a creative learning environment with a wide range of historical-artistic learning programmes. Conveniently situated in the heart of the Civic District, the National Gallery is a must-visit museum for all. Its gallery sits a collection of art that peeks through the unique heritage and historical sight in Singapore. With over 8,000 art pieces showcased in the National Collection, you can expect to be surrounded by the creative voices of these renowned global artists. You might even be pleasantly surprised by the price tag of these exquisite art pieces.

Next, formerly known as D’Kranji Farm Resort, sits a newly renamed Gallop Kranji Farm Resort. What better way for your child to spend their holidays than being around nature? Located in the Northwest part of our tiny country, it provides an all in one family staycation in their uniquely preserved kampong-like villas. If you are looking for an adventure to explore and experience the olden Singapore days, this might be just the right place for you and your kids.
With a guided tour, you can now allow your child to see homegrown plantations such as vegetables, fruits and herbs, which are not a common sight in Singapore. Other activities include spending time prawning or bottle-feeding koi fishes. For those with extra-energetic kids, you can take them to the kampong-themed playground area. If that does not suffice, they also have a Birds Nest Museum that provides an educational experience for all ages, young and old.

On top of that, if your kids are hungry after the intense arcade session, you can also explore the Casa Verde, also known as “GreenHouse” in Italian. It is a casual trattoria nestled within the lush greenery of the Botanic Gardens. Their menu offers a wide selection of dishes from both Singaporean and Western cuisine. It will be a marvellous experience dining amongst flora and fauna, not forgetting how you can also take a stroll in the UNESCO heritage site after a satisfying meal.

Lastly, there is no other better way to beat the hot day in Singapore than to emerge yourself in the water of the water theme park. Wild Wild Wet is a large water park situated at the east of the country, promising a day of spills and thrills for your energetic young ones. The Kidz Zone is filled with exhilarating pint-sized versions of the big rides and designed to give the young ones a taste of the wilder world. The Professor’s Playground your kids can visit features a myriad of classic fixtures such as slides, ladders, water cannons and fountains. If you are looking for a fun weekend out, Wild Wild Wet should be one of your top choices.
