More Hotels for Families

What are the best areas to stay in Singapore for families?

Tourists stay in 4 main areas of Singapore:

  • Orchard Road – Most popular for tourists, great for big shopping malls and sidewalk shopping. Large chain hotels are well represented here.
  • Historic District – Close to museums and tourist sights. Smaller boutique hotels are popular here (and in nearby Chinatown).
  • Marina Bay – Mainly for business travelers who need to be close to the Suntec and Sand’s convetion centers (though Singapore is pushing to expand the appeal of the area as a 24/7 destination).
  • Sentosa – A nearby island filled with theme park attractions, beach activities, 2 golf courses, Universal Studios, bars, restaurants, and several luxury resorts.

  1. Singapore or Sentosa or Both?

    Is it recommended to stay some time in Singapore and some nights in Sentosa Island or stay in the same place and use public transport?

      If you have more than 4 nights or more then do a night or two in Sentosa. If you only have 3 nights then spend them all in Singapore.

  2. Singapore, Phuket, or Kuala Lumpur

    I’m trying to pick a destination to tag along to our trip to mumbai. I’ve narrowed it down to either Singapore, Phuket, or Kuala Lumpur for about 4 days for 2 adults, 3 yr old, and 1 yr old. Which is the better option? Suggestions of areas will be greatly appreciated. Arti

      Singapore for shopping and attractions (zoo, waterparks, and night safari). Phuket (the towns of Kata and Karon) for beaches and playing in the pool. KL is a great place (wonderful food) but not as much for kids as Singapore and Phuket.

  3. Booking Family Hotels in Singapore

    We are a family of 5 and travel Asia regularly. is the best site we’ve found which allows us to book interconnecting rooms for 5 and affordable prices. AirBnB can be an option too, just research well. We’ve been to all the places you’ve mentioned and they are great – you will have a ball if you go!

  4. Southeast Asia with 3 Kids

    Hi, we are a family of 5; 2 adults & 3 kids 9yrs, 12yrs and 14 yrs. We are planning our first overseas trip from South Africa. We were thinking of 5 nights in Hong Kong, 6 nights in Phuket, 5 nights in Singapore, and 5 nights in Kuala Lumpur in December. We are trying to do all the booking ourselves to save costs. I am struggling to find accommodation for 5 of us in most places. Any suggestions please for 3 to 4 star options. And does our itinerary sound reasonable? Would you add or change anything?


    1. DavidDavid My Little Nomads

      I would probably cut a few days off of Kuala Lumpur and add those to Phuket – or maybe add Penang to your route. But, in general, it looks like a great trip.
