On a 6 nights/7 days family vacation in Singapore, Harsh and his family marveled at the spectacular sights and sounds the tiny island nation had to offer. From futuristic entertainment parks to nature-loving gardens, their incredible journey had plenty to feel ecstatic about.
Since my family and I get to travel only once a year, I had to make sure of leaving no stones unturned for our vacation. In the recent past, we had been to a beach destination and a hill station. Therefore this time, we wanted to explore something more modern, entertaining, and luxurious.
That left us with two options- Singapore and Dubai. On asking our friends, we got an overwhelming response for a family vacation in Singapore. A week-long trip looked like a sufficient timeframe to fully enjoy all the sightseeing there are to see.

Since I had booked my honeymoon trip to Maldives with TravelTriangle, I knew I could trust them for a fine holidaying experience. This was my third time taking a package from them and each time I had received the best possible rates for a customized holiday package.
Day 1: Jet-setting to Singapore
We started our trip with an early morning flight from Mumbai that reached Singapore at 7 pm. After a slight confusion with our driver at the airport, we finally found him after waiting for an hour. At 9 pm, we checked into the Parc Sovereign Hotel and decided to rest in our room for the rest of the night.
Day 2: Adventure Safaris of all kind!
The second day of our family vacation in Singapore started with sightseeing at 9 am. After having quick breakfast, the first place we visited was the Singapore Zoo. Witnessing the Polar Bear at the Singapore Zoo was one remarkable experience. We followed that with visiting the River Safari at 4 pm and the night safari at 8 pm.
It felt incredible and thrilling going into the jungle at night when the animals have their hunting instincts at their peak.
Afterwards, we proceeded for dinner at a restaurant near our hotel. Despite being vegetarian, it was easy to find good food to eat. This was another reason why we opted for a hotel near Little India so that every night we could eat dinner outside without having to struggle much.

Day 3: Incredible sightseeing at Sentosa Island
The next morning, post breakfast, we started for our sightseeing tour of Sentosa Island. During the day, we covered incredible places like Butterfly Park and the Insect Kingdom, S.E.A. Aquarium, Madame Tussauds, Images of Singapore, and Wings of Time.
With so many amazing sightseeing places, Sentosa Island felt like a shopping mall of attractions where we saw some incredible place to visit at every step of our way. After ending sightseeing on the third day of our family vacation in Singapore, we returned to the hotel for the night.

Day 4: Universal Studios- The land of dreams!
This day, after breakfast, we began for our Universal Studios Singapore to Sentosa Island. The only positive about having to travel daily to Sentosa was the Cable Car ride we took from Mount Faber in Singapore. The breathtaking views had us in awe and amazement.
Universal Studios is a place I didn’t feel like going out of. There are so many fascinating rides and so much to do that an entire day just went by like a flash. Battlestar Galactica, The Revenge of the Mummy and Transformers were the rides we enjoyed the most. Out of all the zones, the Sci-Fi Zone is one place that must not be missed.
Finally, we saw an incredible 4-D show in the evening at Far Far Away Castle. I have seen a few 4-D shows back in India, but those were not even close to this one in terms of quality. After a wonderful day at Universal Studios, we returned to the hotel at 10 pm for the night.
Day 5: The traditional sightseeing in Singapore
After having a delicious breakfast, we started with our half-day city tour of Singapore. During the day we visited places like Singapore Flyer, Merlion Statue and Park, Fountain of Wealth, and Orchard Road.
After the sightseeing tour, we checked out from Parc Sovereign Hotel and moved to the Village Hotel Albert Court which was just across the street. Our hotel change was preplanned and it just happened because we thought that staying at the same hotel for 7 days would be boring.
Around 4.30 pm we got ready for a visit to the Gardens by the Bay- a huge 250-acre theme park dedicated to all kinds of plants and trees. Over there, we found the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome as the best attractions in the nature park.

Day 6&7: Stories of science and incredible birds
This day wasn’t planned for us, so we decided to visit the Science Center Singapore by ourselves. Being a doctor, this place was even more fascinating for me as they explained the formation of life right from a single cell to a celestial object as big as our planet Earth. Afterwards, we visited Chinatown around 3 pm to buy some souvenirs and gift items for our friends and family.
The final day of our family vacation in Singapore started with sightseeing at Jurong Bird Park. It was a really enjoyable experience and I would’ve preferred a full-day tour of the same. However, since our flight was supposed to leave at 10 pm, we left Jurong Bird Park around 3 pm to pack our bags and check out from the hotel.
At first, I wasn’t sure if 7 days for a family vacation in Singapore would be too much. However, I was pleasantly surprised as we spent each and every day totally engrossed in the natural and man-made wonders Singapore. A city that is well ahead of our time with a futuristic vision, unlike any other destination I’ve seen before.

- S.E.A. Aquarium and Wings of Time were the best attractions we visited on Sentosa Island.
- My daughter simply loved the visit to Jurong Bird Park more than anything else.
- Despite so much traffic, it was nice to see that every driver followed the traffic rules very seriously.
- The third and the fourth days were spent sightseeing at Sentosa Island. TravelTriangle could have arranged a stay in Sentosa for the third night in order to avoid the daily commute from Singapore to Sentosa Island.
- Butterfly and Insect Kingdom could’ve been excluded from the itinerary as we found that place to have nothing special.
A modern mecca of innovations and endless possibilities awaits you. Book your Singapore family package and take holidaying to another level!
