How to Travel to Singapore with Children

November 17, 2017, Author: Beyond Boundaries Travel

Places to visit in Singapore for family abound; you can find many attractions and activities that your whole family, especially the children, will enjoy on your vacation.

Aside from the attractions and activities, however, how you handle your children, particularly toddlers, can also affect your family’s overall enjoyment.

Travelling with kids has long been a challenge for parents, but you can learn tricks below from seasoned travelling parents.

Involve Your Children

Before you even start travelling, if you can have conversations with your children already, you can include them in the decision-making process of the trip. In this way, they can see the destinations and hotels you plan on going to.

For example, if you are going to attractions such as Sentosa – The State of Fun, your children can express their opinions, and you can subsequently excite them with stories about your destinations.

Pack Enough for Babies

When travelling with infants, you need to bring exactly what you need; no more, no less. You can invest in a good baby carrier as well as a travel pram for your baby. Other essentials that you must have included some diaper, milk equipment, baby wipes and an extra change of clothes.

Any other things you need you can easily buy in Singapore.

Have Some Alone Time

Now, you may want some alone time with your spouse or yourself during your Singapore trip. You can leave your children at the kids’ club of the hotel you are staying at. Family-friendly hotels have such clubs that can take your children off your hands for a few hours.

You can also hire a babysitter during the evening when your children have gone to sleep.

Keep Children Busy and Rested

How about plane travel with children? Many families use gadgets to keep children distracted, yet good old games such as UNO, Snakes and Ladders, and others can come in handy too. You can also make sure they have eaten well before any flight.

Rest becomes important for long-haul travel; you can have less jet-lagged and less cranky children.

With the tricks above, your vacation in Singapore will be smooth and easy.
