Family members have different vacation interests, making holiday plans a bit challenging. Teenagers may prefer to go for rides outdoors, while parents would like to stay indoors to appreciate good art. Or vice versa. Kids mostly would want to run around catching critters of all kinds, or completely exhaust themselves and sleep the rest of the day.
If there’s a place that can accommodate all these wildly varying preferences, it’s Sentosa Island. Singapore’s famous tropical attraction offers deals on all kinds of activities that will satisfy even the pickiest vacationers out there. Here’s a sample of all the fun your family can enjoy at the islands.
For the Family Thrill Seekers
The Skyline Luge and Skyride Chairlift encourage some friendly competition for the family. See who can race down the Skyline Luge’s 650m Jungle Trail the fastest, or the lengthier 688m Dragon Trail. Safety is a priority, as you will be taught to navigate the carts properly before barrelling down the hill. Smaller kids can ride with adults to experience pure speed without the risk.
For the Kiddos’ Fascination with Nature
Distract hyperactive kids at the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom’s vast assortment of crawly insects and majestic butterflies. Its location on Imbiah Lookout gives access to a wide variety of beetle and butterfly species for kids to document, Pokemon-style.
For the Quirky Art Lovers
If the weather proves too severe for outdoor romps, check out the amusing displays at the Trick Eye Museum. This unique indoor attraction offers an array of 3D art and interactive optical illusions. Laugh your hearts out as Dad poses as a graceful ballerina, project real grit as you scale snowy mountains or ride the waves atop the legendary Merlion. The museum features 80 paintings and optical illusion installations, of which more than 50 artworks were created specially and adapted just for Singapore. Bring home photo souvenirs of those moments to remember and share for a lifetime with your loved ones.
For many, there’s nothing better than a family vacation during the holidays. Sentosa proves there’s so much more to an excursion, where all family members can truly have fun, the way they prefer.
