^Hi sis.  Did you mean The Strand Hotel?  If so, dyan din kami nag-stay 2 years ago and it's where I booked again for our trip next month.  Super convenient nga ng location na yan.  From airport to right in front of the hotel if you take the MRT.

Din Tai Fung just around the corner, too, katabi lang ng Food Republic.  National Museum din nila ilang lakad lang.

hi sissies! we're planning a family trip to SG, just me, my husband and our 2 kids. is it advisable to bring a 1-year old and 3-year old to USS?  i've been to SG a few times but not in USS so i'm not familiar with the place and the rides. they both get to enter for free but i'm not sure if they will enjoy it since they are still young. if not, maybe we should rather go somewhere else like Singapore Zoo?

^^ Universal Studio Singapore is geared more towards teens/adults. the only kiddie ones are Minions, Sesame Street and Madagascar. check out their site so you can see what rides/shows/ meet and green they offer: https://www.rwsentosa.com/en/attractions/universal-studios-singapore/things-to-do/shows

i think at that age they may enjoy the Singapore Zoo more though

^^Sis, my baby was 1 yr old when we went to USS din. Hindi nya masyado naenjoy kasi konti lang attractions na pwede sya. Maliit lang din ang USS kaya around 4 or 5pm umalis na kami, ilang hrs din kami naghintay sa ibang kasama namin na nag rides. Like sis keulu said, I think mas maeenjoy ng kids mo ang singapore zoo.

thanks for the feedback! we probably won't go to USS anymore. right now we're planning to go to SEA Aquarium, gardens by the bay, singapore zoo and maybe botanical gardens.  hoping to find other options to choose from. any other suggestions on where to go with toddlers?

will be in sg this december for training, ask ko lang if you have any suggestions on which sites we could visit after work. we'll likely get off work around 5:30 PM and will probably stay in holiday inn clarke quay. we're willing to commute naman. on our last day, plan namin mag uss and mag roam around before we head to the airport. we'll leave our luggages na lang sa hotel while we explore.

^ ilang days ba kayo sis?

On workdays, you can go to the following places (in any order), around CBD area naman ang mga to so malapit lang sa hotel nyo and sa workplace (?), madali lang mapupuntahan after work. Even if you start 5:30 to 6, hinde kayo magagahol sa oras.

Day1 - Gardens by the Bay , Marina Bay Sands
Day2 - Merlion Park, Raffles and Esplanade Area
*you can combine the places in Day 1 & 2 so you can explore other places pa
Day3 - Orchard area
Day4 - Bugis area (Bugis Street + Haji Lane + Arab Street etc)
Day5 - Chinatown

Other places na malalapit sa Central Business District:
Botanical Garden
Sentosa
Little India (Mustafa Centre is 24hr shopping centre, pwedeng pwede isingit any time of day or night)
Clarke Quay - well dito naman kayo magsstay so  ;D
nearby Parks

pwede din kayo mag food trip sa mga famous Hawker Centers like Maxwell or Newtorn and the one in Old Airport road, they are not that far naman.

Also, the sun sets late in SG compared here so maliwanag pa ang start ng mga gala nyo  ;)

madami pa mapupuntahan but above are on top of my head.

Enjoy!

Hi sissies, we will be going to SG for 4 days and 3 night, Me, my hubby, 7 year old and almost 4 year old kids plus my mom who is a senior citizen we will be staying walking distance to chinatown mrt station
I would like to ask what can we do on our first day if plane arrival is 2pm, I am thinking we will be arriving at the hotel before 5, considering luggage collection, particularly may stroller kami dagdag daw sa waiting time.
2nd day is in Universal
3rd SG Zoo
4th Marina bay area of course the famouse garden and conservatory

I am wondering puro attractions sila and hoping may maisingit ako stroll sa SG to feel its vibe like these places:
Underground Crossing at Fort Canning
Library @ Orchard
Lau Pa Sat
Peranakan Houses
Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple
Kampong Glam

Can you please help me tweak my IT? Slow pace lang din kami because of my mom and 3 and half year old. She told me naman pede sila maiwan ng kids sa kung gusto namin magasaqa maglibot libot pa after going to major attractions.
Our departure is 10pm pa naman, thank you po sa mga sasagot!

^how about dinner sa lau pa sat on your first day, tapos you can walk back to chinatown? around 15 - 20 minutes walk ata kami nun from lau pa sat to chinatown mrt.

still looking for a hotel to stay in on april, yung affordable sana but kid friendly saka near mrt station. any feedback sa hotel clover? how about v hotel bencoolen and v hotel lavender? i'm also considering hotel nuve urbane pati ibis bencoolen (medyo mahal na nga lang).

^^Sis, sorry but Lau Pa Sat is in Raffles place which is not worth to walk to.  Mas malapit sha if you are in esplanade or Merlion.

Chinatown has Pagoda st (souvenirs and photo op) as well as Smith st (Food street - masarap dito).  You need to also try Hawker chan which is the michelin star hawker for chicken rice.  All in 10 mins walk or less for your first day.

^^Not so sure sis.  We never try the river cruise kasi we prefer walking from esplanade to Marina bay sands and pass by Helix bridge (resident kasi kami... hehe). 

Even when we have visitors, we walk for them to enjoy the fresh air in the afternoon as well as see all the sights within the area.   Honestly, downtown SG is walkable IF you have all the time and you enjoy walking.  Bugis -- clark quay -- chinatown -- raffles place -- esplanade up to Marina bay sands is walkable basta plan your way using google map.  We even walk from Vivocity (harbourfront side) to Sentosa para free entrance (using the tram to enter sentosa is 4SGD ata) + good photo opp.

But if you lack the time, just plan your route via MRT map.  Lahat is within MRT station, even far places like Jurong bird park, Singapore zoo and Changi airport.

^^Btw sis, Red dorz little india is blue line MRT (Jalan besar i think), so direct MRT to chinatown blue line lang kayo.  Since your first day isn't in Chinatown which is malapit lang.  I just hope your elderly can handle a bit of walking.
