A Family Holiday in Singapore

Marina Bay Sands/Universal Studio/Botanic Garden

sunny 30 °C

In my opinion, Singapore is one of the best places to travel with family. The reasons are: safe, green, clean, comfortable and so easy to get to all of the places you like to visit.

After twelve months, I came back again to Singapore with my family, and this time we stayed at Marina Bay Sands Hotel. This place is huge and it is huge enough for people to spend all the time of the day in there without feeling any necessity to go out. You won’t be hungry, as there are countless of restaurants, cafes and a large food court in the resort. You won’t get bored, as there are so many activities you can do, like swimming in the Sky Pool at the rooftop of the tower, taking photographs at the Sky Park and at the Observation Deck, watching shows, shopping, gambling and visiting the Art Science Museum located just outside Marina Bay Sands.

Moreover, the room of the hotel is very clean and new. Guests of the hotel are free to go to the Sky Pool. If you ever stay at Marina Bay Sands, be sure to visit this amazing rooftop pool, especially at sunset when the red and orange colors appear at the horizon and the gold color appears on the surface of water of the pool. Also, the Sky Park is another place that you should not miss out if you ever visit Marina Bay Sands. There is an observation deck in the park which offers a beautiful panoramic view of the city. You will enjoy the view, and if you visit it at night I’m sure you will be amazed and surprised by the night view you see in front of your eyes.

During this family holiday in Singapore, I and my parents had visited Universal Studio as well. The One Day Pass costs SING$74.00 per adult and SING$36.00 per senior over age 60. The park is small. Three to four hours are enough time to visit the park. The Transformers 3D Ride is the latest adventure in the park at the time I traveled to Singapore. The ride is exciting and super realistic, but at the same time the 3D virtual reality effects left me quite dizzy at the end of the adventure. I’m such a weak worm. :D

Botanic Garden is a good place to bring your family to spend some hours of the day. This garden is a home of more than 2,500 species of plants in its 23 specialty gardens. My mom likes the Orchid Garden as it is the largest display of orchids in the world, and my father enjoys the scent of the flowers at the Ginger Garden. To me, the pond of the garden is my favorite spot to take pictures. I’m sure that you will find your favorite place at the Botanic Garden.
