- Jurong Bird Park
- Science Centre Singapore
- Singapore Zoo
- Snow city
- Vivo city

Singapore is well known for its beautiful parks and open spaces. For a free and lazy outing, wander around one of the many areas of natural or cultivated beauty. The Botanical Gardens, Zoological Garden and Jurong Bird Park are all well worth a trip.

Yeah Genting is not bad - theme park for children, casino for adults with resorts and hotels to boot...

But travelling there is a bit too long, don't you think? 4 to 5 hours of drive on highway followed by another hour or so up the highlands :-|

Hi there, if Genting is a little too far for u, then you could try Tioman island. Loads of things to do there but when are you travelling cause during nov-feb monsoon season not advisable to go there. Other place would be Batam or Malacca. Batam you could do all the water sports at the water front city while Malacca nice place to relax and see the history.

I agree with Singapore Zoo.. We all know that kids would love to see animals.
