Five days isnt enough to do all the sightseeing in Singapore,nor even the major sights. Its perfectly fine to have a great time. However you have to read some itineraries here to get an idea of how long things take and reconsider your choices of things to see, as you have somewhere around 6-7 days worth of material in your list already. That timing is also doing things pretty full on making the Night Safari a possibly difficult to slot in item.

Impossible to do 2 destinations in 5 days

Bangkok alone is easy 3 days for key attractions

As for Singapore:

1. Sentosa Island, Universal Studio & Zoo these are full day each

2. Bird Park, Botanical Garden, these are easily half a day to 2/3 day

3. Garden of the Bay, half day including one of the Conservatories

4. Flyer, closed till further notice

5. Chinatown and Little India, half a day each

6. Buddha Relic Temple, 2 hours probably

7. Night Safari, is 3 hour in the evening

Day 1 is not ideal for Night Safari given your early flight. You will be tired and want to call it a night early.

Day 3 is too full and they all require a lot of walking. GBTB is a better chocie for Day 1.

Bugis Street is popular with tourists looking for cheaper souvenirs and clothes. Avoid Little India on Sundays due to the large number of Southeast Asian workers spending their day off there.

The cost of visiting 3 wildlife parks is more than the cost of getting a 4-park pass https://visit.wrs.com.sg

Day 1 is impossible. Night Safari is from 7.30pm up to 12 midnight. Most people will stay there till 11pm+, meaning that by the time you reach your hotel, unpack your luggage, bathe, dry your hair etc you will be looking at sleeping past 1am. A 5am arrival into Singapore basically means you are sleeping probably 3-4 hours at most on the plane and this isn't enough sleep for you to last till so late on the first day.

Basically do the easy things on the first day like shopping, botanic gardens which is great to go in the early morning and have an early night rest.

Better to do sentosa on consecutive days so that you can get the USS+ Fun3/5/max passes which are valid for 2 days. Depending on which attractions you want to go to, these passes might be value for money.

Since you are already doing 3 wildlife parks, the better option might be to take the 4 park hopper package instead since it is cheaper as a package.

I don't really think the 2-Day FUN Pass is great value and it limits you to do the sightseeing two days in a row. What if the weather is not good or you are tired or fall sick? Some attractions are bundled together so count as 2 credits. https://www.sentosa.com.sg/funpass/faq

There are also discounts when buying the attraction tickets separately and they give you more flexibility.

The fun passes do offer some discounts. For example if you take the USS+Fun5 pass, it is $130. For the following attractions, USS, SEA Aquarium (2 credits), Wings of Time, Trick Eye Museum & Merlion it will cost $170 buying through the Sentosa website. So there is a savings of $40.

However, this has to be weighed against the fact that you need to do the attractions on consecutive days and also there might be weather or health issues that might cause you to stay in your hotel for the second day of the pass which means you basically waste the pass.

End of the day, you have to decide between cost savings and flexibility.
