Maximise Your Singapore Weekend Vacation

boy in cable car to SentosaFamily weekends are becoming more precious. For some families, weekends are the only time to spend together, given everyone’s busy work and school schedules. Taking a weekend off to go on a holiday is an ideal way to catch up on what everyone has been up to, or to celebrate a special occasion.

A child’s birthday celebration, for example, can be made more memorable with a Sentosa pass for all family members. This will make the short holiday filled with fun activities and visits to attractions unique only to Sentosa and the garden city of Singapore.

Here’s how to make the most out of a weekend holiday to Sentosa:

1. Get the Family Pass

A family or individual pass to Sentosa is a bundle or package that allows you to save on ticket prices and entrance fees. It comes out as a cost-effective option to get to see more places and experience more adventures during your trip.

There are passes for a day or two days, which is perfect for weekend holidays. The two-day pass includes access to both Sentosa and Universal Studios Singapore, one of the top attractions on the island. This mega-theme park has roller coasters, attractions, and the appeal of having well-loved Hollywood and cartoon characters walking around the streets. The rides and attractions make this a happy place for kids and the young at heart.

2. Book a Hotel or Room Near Sentosa

Travelling with kids can be a challenge if you have to commute long distances. Make sure you book a hotel or apartment as close to Sentosa as possible. This will help you arrive at the parks early, even before it opens so that you can be one of the first people on the line.

Naturally, you’ll have to take note of the hours of operation of the parks and aquariums you’ll be visiting. This can help you create an itinerary for the day.

You can start with the most energy-consuming ones like the bungee jumping, zip line, and go-kart racing while it’s still early, and leave the gardens and aquariums for last because these areas can be covered even at a leisurely pace.

When travelling with family, especially children, it’s essential to plan and prepare for various situations. Make the most of a holiday adventure by creating an itinerary. If plans don’t push through, that’s fine. What matters is the time all of you spent together.
