I recently took my Mum and my grandma, aka Dors, on holidays to Singapore. We’d heard it was a great spot for families, so thought what better way to try it out than with three generations on the one trip!?
As there is just SO much to see and do in Singapore, I’m going to write two blog posts about our amazing experience. After all, there’s only so much typing these little hands of mine can take at once 😉
For this post I’ve asked Mum for her top 5 favourite activities and places we visited from a grown-up perspective. We’ll save my ultra-fun tips from a kids perspective for the next instalment!
Roxy’s Singapore Top 5
The Singapore River Cruise is the only way to take in all the sights of Singapore’s beautiful quays and marina. It’s great to be able to sit back and relax whilst cruising past all of the key landmarks and bridges while learning about Singapore’s history. Best of all, being in a boat is fantastic for the little ones, they’ll enjoy the excitement of cruising while you sit back and enjoy. A must for the whole family.
Everyone knows the incredible Marina Bay Sands, it’s hard to miss! No trip to Singapore would be complete without paying this amazing complex a visit. After a long day shopping and sight-seeing we were all looking for a relaxing spot to take a break and refuel with some sweet treats (Pixie in particular!) TWG Tea Salon and Boutique at Marina Bay Sands was the perfect spot, complete with over 1000 tea blends to select from and a tempting array of pastries and cakes.
There is no time like going on holidays to treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment. A trip to a day spa is something that Pixie and I both enjoy doing together so we made sure we saved some time indulge in a spa treatment. The ESPA at Sentosa was the perfect oasis away from the buzz of the city and the perfect spot to unwind after a long, hot day of sight seeing. I would certainly recommend ESPA as an excellent spa to really pamper yourself while you’re on holidays in Singapore.
They call Orchard Road a shopper’s paradise, and it’s not hard to see why! While there are literally shops everywhere in Singapore, from market stalls to high-end luxury boutiques, it’s hard to go past the air-conditioned comfort of the shopping centres on Orchard Road. They literally have every brand and designer you can imagine!
Sentosa Island has everything you need for the perfect holiday; beaches, hotels, great shopping, theme parks, dining and more – it’s a holiday destination in itself. We loved exploring the island and without a doubt the Port of Lost Wonder was a highlight. It is a fantastic water themed playground for the little ones who will love splashing around and cooling off in the water play areas.
If you’re looking on planning a family holiday to Singapore, there’s no better place to plan your whole trip than the Visit Singapore site – it covers everywhere we visited and more! I hope you enjoyed my first Singapore round-up of all the must see places. More to come soon with my Top 5 Singapore experiences!
