Places to go as a family

Postby gladyschan » Sat Apr 21, 2012 11:22 pm

Hello.. seeking for some ideas on where to go for a family day out from fellow parents here :)

Just planning to stay in Singapore (no sentosa/kusu island/pulau ubin etc), but don't want to go to shopping centres. I heard about macritchie and punggol parks being very fun, but I really have no stamina to walk long distances.

Where are some good places to hang out as a family? My kids are in their teens/twenties.

Go fly kites? (Literally) :wink:

West Coast park, Marina Barrage? Although as teenagers I'm not sure how interested they would be in that.

When I was in my early 20s and still living with my parents, we went together to Karaoke a lot....

My kids enjoy Punggol Park. Just take Bus 84 and can take a stroll down. It's quite breezy if you go in the late evening.

Alternatively, we went and watch Basketball match at Indoor stadium by Singapore Slingers :)

I suggest the 'durian' aka the esplanade. It's got a/c. There's always something happening there, in addition to the plays, shows etc you can catch with the family. After that there are plenty of makan options. :imcool:

Go for something different like playing bowling? I think it will be fun too!

Museums? For the month of August, entry to museums is free. Forest Adventure is quite a fun thing to do as a family too. There are often events on at the Esplanade, some of which are free. Or explore different districts: Toa Payoh, Changi, Woodlands, Tiong Bahru - they all have different characters and interesting things to see if you pay attention.
