The best part about traveling with kids is that you get to see the world through their eyes. Things that you may have overlooked the first time you visited a place suddenly become interesting. Attractions you might have skipped are now worth checking out. Traveling with the little ones gives you a chance to rediscover a destination.
Sites you can include in your itinerary that the young ones will definitely enjoy are aquariums and parks. Kids view the world of animals with such wide-eyed wonder, you can’t help but be swept away by their enthusiasm. Plus, it would be the perfect opportunity to teach them about empathy and stewardship of our planet.
Headed for Singapore? Here are a few destinations you might want to check out.
Singapore S.E.A. Aquarium
If your kids are fans of Nemo, Dory, Marlin, and the rest of the underwater crew of Pixar’s popular movie, they are going to love the S.E.A. Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa. It’s the largest aquarium in Asia and houses 50 different habitats that are home to 1,000 species of over 10,000 marine animals!
The Shark Seas tunnel is sure to be a hit, and the Ocean Dome where you can watch manta rays serenely swimming above you—won’t fail to impress. You can also meet S.E.A. Aquarium’s newest resident, the Sand Tiger Shark. But save your biggest gasps for the Open Ocean habitat. It’s 36 meters wide and over eight meters tall! Sitting before the viewing panel feels like being at the bottom of the ocean, watching all the beautiful marine life swim past you. If you book a room at the Ocean Suites, you can sleep with an underwater view of the Open Ocean exhibit as well!
Satisfy your kids’ curiosity and indulge their fascination with all types of creepy crawlies at Sentosa’s Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom, home to 3,000 species of butterflies and insects.
They can learn about the life stages of the butterfly in a live display and walk into a beautiful lush, green enclosure where they can interact with butterflies fluttering around them. That’s bound to be a magical experience for kids and adults alike. Speaking of magical, be sure to visit the firefly enclosure. Fireflies, nature’s very own light show performers, are always a sight to behold. Finally, check out the insect museum, where your kids will be greeted with a jaw-dropping display of rare insects—tarantulas, scorpions, Hercules and unicorn beetles, and tons more.
Have fun making memories with the entire family!
