During the last school holidays we took our family of five to Singapore. Travelling overseas with 3 kids (including a 15 month old energetic toddler) is not the easiest thing to do but we’ve taken our kids to a few other Asian countries in the past including Cambodia and Thailand so we had a bit of experience leading up to this trip.

If anything Singapore was a bit easier to negotiate with kids because the water was safe to drink, we didn’t need any immunisations and as a whole the country was very clean and easy to get around. These are all big pluses when travelling with kids.

For our trip here we stayed at a fantastic hotel called Fraser Place Robertson Walk which was central to the hub of activity in Singapore. This hotel was fantastic for our family. We had a three bedroom serviced apartment with a kitchen and washing machine and it was reasonably priced. The hotel also had an indoor play area for toddlers, a toddler pool and playground – definitely family friendly! We skipped the included breakfast, opting instead to use our own kitchen facilities and the supermarket across the road for supplies.

During our stay in central Singapore we managed to visit a few places that are great for kids:
