Play S'more in S'pore

Singapore

Singapore is an exciting city to explore, especially with children. There’s something in town for the adventurous, the athletic, the bookish, or the crafty. Whether they’re toddling along or on the brink of their teen years, steal the kids away from the TV and video games for a day of much-needed quality time. Everyone knows about Universal Studios or the Singapore Zoo, but we’re looking beyond the obvious to bring you new favorites to add to your play date itinerary. Call off the babysitter and bring the whole family along!

Night Safari

Singapore, Singapore • Recommendation • 9 June 2018

Take a walk on the wild side at Singapore’s Night Safari. The park comes to life after dark with all sorts of creatures: curious civets, fierce felines, and cheeky elephants. Some of them even display their talents in the Creature of the Night Show. Singapore Zoo is just next door, deep in sleep by the time all the fun in the Night Safari starts. The kids may have to stay up a bit after bedtime, but they won’t forget an experience like this! Long queues gather for a 40-minute expedition through the forest on a tram. Instead, opt for a leisurely walk on one of their four trails. There are fewer crowds, allowing you more time at each enclosure. Thrilling wild cats prowl along the Leopard Trail and Fishing Cat Trail while unusual creatures scurry about on the East Lodge Trail and Wallaby Trail. Hydrate, dress cool, and wear insect repellent! A small toy will also help in the case of long lines for the tram.
