It’s never too late to start making plans for SG52 and even if you didn’t bag a seat at the official parade, there’s still SO many fun ways to celebrate all things Singapore! Make good use of that extra day off this week: we’re getting the National Day 2017 party started with the HoneyKids guide to all the things we love about this wonderful land we call home…
Singapore absolutely knows how to do food! We say start the celebrations by working your way through our favourite 30 local dishes, wash them down with a hot cup of kopi or teh tarik, and then stockpile the 10 Singapore comfort foods we need at hand at ALL times.
There’s SO much to see and do on this small but mighty island, so we’ve made things a whole heap easier for you by picking out the 52 things to do in Singapore with the kids, from the obscure to the iconic.
It wouldn’t be National Day at all without fighter planes, helicopters and that giant SG flag! Don’t worry, folks, we’ve found all the places perfect for watching the aerial displays and fireworks to make sure your family evening goes with a bang.
You’re absolutely going to need something fabulous to wear for the celebrations: any excuse to break out the cute cheongsams and dapper Mandarin collar shirts for the kiddos! Get your red and white on, party people!
With so many amazing pockets of Singapore to explore, we’re hard pushed to pick one favourite area, but the buzzy vibes of Chinatown, the great eats and bright colours of Little India, and the hipster hang-outs around Haji Lane and Kampong Glam are particularly representative of multi-cultural Singapore.
If it’s a quintessentially Singaporean day out with the small people in tow you are looking for, then our list of cultural outings with kids is a must! Checking out the Merlion from a bumboat? Yes please!
With all that fun, the whole family are going to need refuelling. From casual picks to fancy feasts, we’ve found the SG52 lunches, brunches and dinners we want in on…
After a jam-packed day of celebrations, round up the SG52 fun with a lovely bedtime story for the kids: with a Singapore theme, of course!
