A Family Affair

Travelling with Kids: Planning a great family getaway to Singapore

Planning a family vacation is not easy but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Hosted by Arissa Afrina, 8 and Amelia Lee, 9, Singapore Tourism Board’s #SingaporeJunior web series invites you to experience family travel through the eyes of kids – while providing helpful tips and tricks for a successful holiday.


  • One of the tips would be: when you plan, check out special experiences that may be included in the locations or attractions you have in mind. Our hosts had a behind-the-scenes session with the insects of Singapore Zoo as part of the Wild Discoverer Tour. Discovering new experiences as a family is a sure-fire way to make the holiday memorable.


  • Sightseeing is one thing but how about getting creative as a family? Amelia and Arissa find out how fun it is to try out imaginative activities when they visit ArtScience Museum, Keppel Centre for Art Education, and Slappy Cakes. Between watching your drawings come to life and making your own pancakes, keep places like these in mind for some brilliant family fun.


Feeling inspired by Arissa and Amelia’s adventures? Come visit us at the Singapore Pavilion at MATTA Fair on September 2 – 4, Putra World Trade Centre, and find out how you can have the best family holiday ever with special packages and promotions. You also stand a chance to win the Ultimate Family package to Singapore that includes flights, hotel stays and many more! Details at www.yoursingapore.my/junior/matta/
