With a baby in tow, sometimes it gets a little difficult to have fun and take a breather. It takes a little effort to find the right place – smooth terrains, accessible diaper changing areas etc., so here's a listicle of the top 5 places to save you a little time and trouble.
1. S.E.A Aquarium
This place is a hot favourite because babies can follow movement at a pretty young age. They tend to be able to appreciate the colourful, swimming fishes. The only downside is that this place is so popular with young families that the nursing room can't service the crowd during the peak.
Each trip effectively set you back around $56 / 2 pax (locals), free for kids under 4 years old.
This is basically a day trip which lots to see and learn. The baby will now learn that an elephant is not palm-sized and giraffes are not mere images made from imagination. There is also a decent variety of affordable food options within the vicinity. If you are particular, it is still good to pack your lunch boxes.
Each trip effectively set you back around $86.40 / 2 pax (locals), free for kids under 3 years old. Saving Tip: Get the Friends of Wildlife membership if you are a frequent guest.
3. Pororo Park
Safe and curated indoor playground for kids and toddlers located in central. It is convenient and accessible. Although the place may appear small, it consists a kid's dream carousel and mini train. It gives the child good exposure to future themepark rides.
Each trip effectively set you back around $46 / 2 adults + 1 Kid, free for kids below 9 months old. Saving Tip: Bring your own socks for slight savings.
4. Gardens by the Bay
If your child is a nature lover, this place will tickle you pink. This place is easily accessible through public transport and the park is massive, so huge you may want to break the trip to a few visits. If your child sleeps late, you may even use the opportunity to catch the complimentary light show.
Each trip effectively set you back around $0 to $24/ 2 adults (locals depending on your choice of activity), free for kids below 3 years old. Survival Tip: Enter the dome for some air-con bliss if the humid weather gets into you.
To just break the monotonous life and have a change in environment even when stuck in town, you can opt for a night stay at more children-friendly hotels. Hotels can also provide a base for your little family to explore areas further than your home.
Each trip effectively set you back around $100 to $300/night (depending on your hotel and number of night stays). Saving Tip: Go during off-peak season and look out for deals for maximum savings.
