Like Mary Poppins said ”Let’s go fly a kite!” Pack up a picnic full of delicious goodies and either make your own or take your kite along for an afternoon of fun at Marina Barrage. You’ll see plenty of colorful kites decorating the sky. Once you’ve finished take a walk along the river in the afternoon sun.

This day-tripper is an easy one and packed with lots of nature fun for the whole family (babies included)! The island itself is protected from redevelopment, creating a haven for eco-loving families and adventure seekers. Prepare to feast your eyes on Singapore in the 1960's and explore the time warped island for the kiddos. Pack up some sandwiches and eat them at the campsite, watch the local birds and monkeys playing around you.
