I want to share this Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days trip as this can be helpful for you to plan your holiday in singapore.I know if you plan a holiday in Singapore then you are with doubts such as where to go in Singapore and what to do in Singapore.

Staying in Singapore, I never find a dull moment. Everywhere there is a new thing to see and experience. I’ve visited the major attractions of Singapore more than one time, but I still love to visit those again. More than visiting again and again, I love to experience the places to visit in Singapore with my friends who come to Singapore. It is always a great time for me.

When one of my besties wanted to come for a short trip to Singapore, I was really happy not only because I get the opportunity to visit the major Singapore attractions again, but also I will have a good companion to spend the time among chit chat!

Anyway, as I planned her family trip to Singapore, I just wanted to share our Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days trip. Usually a 5 days stay in Singapore is good enough to cover most of the major attractions leisurely than on a 3 days trip. So, we could visit most of the attractions during this 5 days holiday in Singapore.

Here is our Singapore Itinerary for 5 days with kids. Please note that our travel group included 2 of our families which include 2 little guys of 3 years old. So, this itinerary is mostly suitable for anyone who visits Singapore with little kids.

Let’s start the journey!

Our Singapore Itinerary for 5 Days with kids

Day 1 (Arrival Day) -Walk along the Singapore River (Marina Bay)

The first day is the arrival day to Singapore. Usually this day is suitable to visit the Marina bay attractions as Marina bay is more beautiful and comfortable during the night time. That is why we started our sightseeing in Singapore from walking around Marina bay and Clerk Quay.

We spent whole day in Sentosa Island. However, it was a rainy day. So, we couldn’t visit many attractions inside the Sentosa Island. As we were travelling with 2 little kids, we spent more time on the Palawan Beach giving them time to relax and play. Universal Studios is another popular attraction which is suitable for visiting with kids.

  1. My favourite day in Singapore was getting the bumboat over to Palau Ubin and riding bikes around. We were chased by wild boar – it was so crazy, so close to the city. They have bikes with kids seats too.

  2. It’s been a long time since we’ve visited Singapore and before kids. Glad to see that many of the attractions we loved like Sentosa Island and the Singapore Zoo made this list. We’d love to return with the kids soon!

  3. My husband and I are planning to go to SG next month so thank you for the tips! I think we’ll skip on some attractions though, because the kids aren’t coming with us. We’ll also stay there for 5 days so yay! 🙂 I’m including the Universal Studios and Sentosa in our list.
