If you are looking for cheap or free things to keep you entertained in Singapore, there are actually a large array of activities out there. Trying to keep costs down with children is a struggle, so making use of free facilites can ease the burden somewhat. Try any of these suggestions for a fun day out.

  1. Visit the NUS Museum, at the Kent Ridge Crescent campus where you can view three separate collections under one roof.
  2. Visit any of the National museums on a Friday night between 7-9pm.
  3. Go window shopping and people watching along Orchard Road. Better still, walk around Little India or Chinatown, although you will be more than tempted to buy some great but cheap food.
  4. Visit the Botanical Gardens and stroll along the new boardwalk throught the rainforest.
  5. Check out the Esplanade for free lunchtime performances.
  6. Visit a Mosque (Sultan Mosque at Arab Street), Hindu Temple (Sri Marriamman in Chinatown) or Chinese Temple (Thian Hock Keng on Telak Ayer St) and gain a better understanding of the cultures living side by side here in Singapore.
  7. Visit the beach at East Coast Park where you can play volley ball, build a sand castle, or take a stroll.
  8. Walk along Singapore River and spot the sculpture near Empress Place and the Fullerton Hotel. You can walk right around to the Esplanade for great views, or the other way past Clarke Quay to Robertson Quay.
  9. Take a hike in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve or MacRitchie Reservoir where you will probably see some monkeys and large monitor lizards.
  10. Take a look around Raffles Hotel. Go up to the Raffles Hotel Museum which is free to enter.
