  • Decide what kind of family vacation you want to plan. A purely attraction-based trip? Perhaps a look back at the historical sights of The Lion City? The more solid a plan, the more you will know what you are looking for.

  • Dress comfortably. You’re going to be on your feet most of the time, so you want to make sure that you’re wearing something that will still be comfortable after 4 hours of squeezing past people and murmuring, “Excuse me.”
  • Bring along a bottle of water! While you’re busy picking out that perfect family holiday package to Singapore, you might get thirsty. It’s best to come prepared as there are not many places nearby to purchase water.
  • Don’t forget that you may accumulate a lot of brochures, bring along a bag or take the one given with the entrance ticket. These brochures showcase may help you gain a better understanding of the packages on offer and be helpful during the planning stage.

While you’re there

  • Compare packages! The cheapest one may not necessarily be the most relevant package for your family. Be sure to identify what exactly is included in the deal to see if it is truly the right package for you. For example, if you don’t plan to rent a car and you know you’ll be travelling all over the place, try to secure a deal that includes some form of transportation to minimise costs spent on taxis! By the way, this is a good time to check out Singapore’s promotions here.
  • If you are Muslim, be sure to get the travel agents to tell you the best Muslim-friendly places that you can visit while on your trip. This makes it easier for you to decide where exactly to go and how to best plan out your holiday!
  • Keep yourself in good spirits. The crowd may get on your nerves, and it might take awhile to find something that actually piques your interest – but don’t forget that the end goal is to make sure that amazing vacation happens. There’s also no point in getting annoyed, as you’ll only make yourself feel miserable. So keep your head held high and put your best foot forward when you brave the masses!
