Singapore must be one of the most kids-friendly cities in the world when it comes to activities around the island. The Night Safari and Universal Studios are fun for all the family but especially for the little ones. A cruise around the harbour is also an attractive activity and the Marina Bay Sands Casino is aimed more for adults. You’re going to have to pluck up some real courage to have a ride on the fearsome Reverse Bungy at Clarke Quay.

The most adrenalin-inducing thing to do in Singapore has got to be the G-Max Reverse Bungy, Singapore’s first ever bungy. Get launched skywards at 200 km per hour to a height of 60 metres and bounce for approximately 5 minutes.
The experience is not unlike being an astronaut in a rocket launch as you sit in an open-sided ‘capsule’. Also, for a few extra dollars, riders get a T-shirt and a DVD recording of themselves in action, taken by an onboard camera. Read More...

Built in 1894, Lau Pa Sat, once a wet market, is now a popular and atmospheric hawker centre. This historic building was built with Victorian filigree cast-iron and is located in the heart of Singapore's business area. At lunchtime, it’s full of office workers, whereas, by night, the street is closed and the many food stalls serve plenty of local favourite dishes.
Also known as Telok Ayer Market, standout dishes at Lau Pa Sat include sticks of tasty satay chicken with peanut dipping sauce and grilled stingray, covered in a spicy sambal sauce. Read More...

Treetop walk at MacRitchie Reservoir
The treetop walk at MacRitchie Reservoir is a big project and a pioneer of its genre in Singapore. Standing 25 metres high and at 250 metres long, the wooden walkway bridge gives you the opportunity to see Singapore in a different way: without one tall building in sight – just a fantastic panoramic view of the forest with its many interesting animals. It takes at least 3 hours to fully enjoy the treetop walk at a distance of around 7 km.
- Opening Hours: Daily from 9am to 5pm (open from 8.30am pm weekends)

Cruises and boat rides
One of the best ways to get to know Singapore is from the outside looking in; that's to say, a cruise. Leisurely, relaxing and memorable, cruising in the harbour is the ideal way to view the city-state.
Cruises take on many different shapes in Singapore. Options include getting up early to join a Morning Glory Cruise or spend an afternoon taking it easy with the High Tea Cruise or experience the romantic side of Singapore with a Dinner Cruise.
The Sungei Buloh Nature Park is a great place for bird-watching, being a regional stopover for birds on their North-South migrations. An 87-hectare wetland reserve, the park is a little less than an hour’s ride by car from the centre of town. The park gives you an idea of the mangrove swamps that once surrounded Singapore.
