Wondering where to take the kids during the school holidays in Singapore? Here’s our list of the best kid-friendly activities, based on your budget.
What better time to rediscover Singapore than during the school holidays? With June right around the corner, there’s still plenty of time left to plan family-friendly activities. Here are some of our recommendations, along with costs and what to expect for each activity.
Family Staycation at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa
There is no better way to pamper your family than with a staycation. At Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa, prices start from S$388++ per night for two adults and S$538++ for two adults and two children. These packages entitle you to enjoy the 5-star luxury room, all resort facilities, and 3 meals prepared by in-house chefs. Your kids can even join the Kid’s Retreat programme (at S$35 per child) where activities such as canvas painting, mermaid swimming and tent building will be conducted. Don’t let the staycation prices deter you from having a good time, you can always use your $100 SingapoRediscovers Voucher to offset the bill. To maximise the value of your SingapoRediscover Voucher, remember to:
- Opt for bundle deals put together on authorised booking platforms
- Pay with the right credit card to enjoy additional discounts
- Weigh your options carefully before you spend the vouchers
STAR WARS Identities: The Exhibition
Let the force be with you this June when you visit Star War Identities, an exclusive interactive exhibition displaying close to 200 artefacts from the original Star Wars films. Held at the ArtScience Museum until 13 June 2021, you can grab a set of 4 tickets at the price of S$80 for 2 adults and 2 children or individual tickets at S$25 per adult. Seniors citizens, students, children ages 2 to 12, and people with disabilities can enjoy a discounted rate at S$20. You’ll get a chance to come up close and personal with original movie props, artwork, costumes, and star ships such as the Millennium Falcon and the Star Destroyer from Star Wars. Your family can also experience the creative process of movie-making from early concept drawings to storyboarding and even costume design.
Once Upon a Time on the Orient Express
Now you can experience the glamour and romance of the Orient Express at the West Lawn, Gardens by the Bay. The pop-up attraction “Once Upon A Time on The Orient Express” features two original 1930 train carriages, classified as National Treasures, as well as a 158-year-old locomotive shipped all the way from France! There are also approximately 300 items restored especially for this event. This exhibition will end in September 2021, so make sure to use the June holidays to catch a glimpse of this rare event. To enjoy more savings on your tickets, consider getting the family bundle (two adult tickets and two children tickets) instead of purchasing individual tickets, to save at least 12% off the original price.
Forest Adventure: A Treetop Obstacle Course
Step into the world of true adventure at Singapore’s largest treetop adventure park and immerse yourself in fun, adrenaline-pumping actions. At this exciting outdoor park, you’ll get to fly across Bedok Reservoir on three breath-taking 300-meter ziplines and 44 wobbly crossings. Your kids can also choose from a variety of courses for an unparalleled obstacle adventure. Some notable obstacle courses include Grand Course, Junior Course, and Kids Course that provide different experiences and levels of difficulty to suit you and your family. If you think your children are too young to go at it alone, you can even accompany them throughout the entire course. A day out at Forest Adventure Treetop doesn’t have to be costly, you can get as much as a 10% discount if you make an online booking for 4 people in one single transaction.
Use The Right Credit Card To Save More During The June Holidays
With so many things to do and so many places to see, you’ll have more than enough to keep you and your family busy for the entire June school holiday. Start planning early to take advantage of promotions and avoid missing out on all the fun. Also, remember to use the right credit cards for all your bookings because some cards are designed to reward users for spending on entertainment and dining.
