Radhi D, hi

Its great that you already prioritized the points of interest in Singapore. your next logical step is to allocate them day-by-day according to your preference and family needs ( if any).

Look at an online map to get an idea of their locations. Use gothere.sg for an idea of the travelling time and options available. Key in the postal code if the name of the location cannot be found.

1) universal studios - three-quarter of a day

2) sentoza islands - 1 day but you won't be able to see everything. Research what you want to see.

3) night safari - night time. Don't attempt on day of arrival. Don't exhaust yourself earlier in the day.

4) river safari - can combine with Night Safari.

5) gardens by the bay - half a day. Can probably pair with Marina Bay.

6) marina bay - a couple hours to half a day depending on what you intend to visit

7) china town - half a day

8) little india - half a day

9) merlion park - combine with Marina Bay

10) bugis street night market - the market starts from midday to night.

11) singarope flyer - approx 45min-1 hour

12) 1-altitude - it is a club at night so the time to visit depends on you.

13) southern ridges - half to three-quarter of a day.

It is hard to help you without all the info - Who is travelling, having young children or elderly with you can make a difference. Does your 9 days include your travel days and if so what time do you arrive and leave ?

This is how I would group them together -

1) universal studios

1) sentosa islands

1) night safari

river safari

1) gardens by the bay

marina bay

merlion park

singarope flyer

1) china town

little india

bugis street night market

1) southern ridges

1) 1-altitude

You did not say where you was staying, we always use public transport as our hotel is near a few MRT stations and a bus route but as there are 4 adults you may want to check out the cost of a taxi.

You will still be able to use your travel gays for sight seeing as most hotels will hold your luggage for you leaving you free to explore, We always arrive early morning but we just drop our luggage off and go because we have been advise if we napped in the morning this could throw you body clock out and possibility of jetlag plus unless you have paid for early check in chances are your room will not be ready anyway.

As for places you have missed I can name loads but obviously you will not have time to fit it all in. Here are a few -

Zoo

Jurong Bird Park

Botanic Gardens

Fort Canning

Changi Chapel

Pulau Ubin (bike riding)

St Johns and Kusu Islands

Haw Par Villa

Wild wild wet

Adventure Cove

Spectra – free Light & Water Show @ Marina Bay

Bukit Timah

East Coast Park

MacRitchie treetop walk
