5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore

Hurray holidays are finally coming! When I was a student, holidays are the one thing I look forward to the most. To date, it still is! No matter it’s short or long holidays, it’s time to leave your textbooks for a while and go out to have some fun! After all, we need to strike a balance between study and play, agree? And during the upcoming March school holidays, if you can’t afford to go overseas, Singapore has a lot of things to offer too! Below are the 5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore.

5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore – Visit Sembawang Hotsprings

Do you know that there’s a natural hotsprings in Singapore? Not kidding, it’s in Sembawang! When I first got to know about this, my jaw just dropped. I just can’t associate the hot Singapore with hotsprings together. Being a curious cat, I went down to check it out. And to my surprise, it was sooooooooooo different from the hotsprings I had imagined. Although it’s nothing like the ones in Japan, it’s still quite an experience.

 

Instead of submerging yourself in a big pool of water, you’ll need to use buckets to fill up the hotspring water. If you are a first-timer like me, the best you can do is probably submerging your feet into the busket. The alkaline spring water is said to cure rheumatism, and heal skin problems such as acne or psoriasis. Although there is no scientific evidence to back up these claims, the heat of the water can relax muscles and joints. That’s for sure. 😛

Tips: The water is really super hot! According to the Straits Times, it’s more than 70 degree Celsius. So don’t ever submerge your feet inside until it’s properly cooled. There’s a man who lost six toes back in 2002 due to the water heat.


5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore – Universal Studio Singapore (USS)

Are you and your family a fan of Universal Studio movies? If yes, this theme park is the right place! Inside the park, there are many fun and exciting rides. Be it roller coaster, 4D movie experience, grand parades, you’ll find everything you need to evoke your childhood dream. However, do prepare yourself for the large crowd if you are going during the March school holidays. If you want to skip the queue and don’t mind paying extra, you can consider getting yourself a fast pass.

Tips: Don’t get your tickets on the spot or from the USS official website, it’s more expensive as compared to getting one from a tour agency. You can find dozens of tour agencies in Chinatown, which offer at least $10 cheaper than the official ticket price. And yes, they are valid tickets and you can enter the theme park without any problem.

5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore – Swim at Adventure Cove

This water theme park is another park located in Sentosa which I highly recommend. If you don’t mind getting darker and love to experience thrill slides, this is the best place in Singapore. Apart from the slides, there is also a wave pool and a snorkeling tank. I really enjoy the snorkeling as there are many colorful fishes and corals inside the tank. It’s a great experience for those who haven’t experience snorkeling in the sea before!

Tips: Just like USS tickets, you can get much cheaper tickets at a tour agency.

Craving for more water splash? Check out the Wave House! Located along Sentosa Siloso Beach, it’s the only place in Singapore where you can surf with the ideal waves! It’s gonna take time to get to get a hang of it if you’re a first timer. But trust me, surfing is super fun. Do prepare for the falls though! After all, falling and failing is part and parcel of mastering anything.

5 Best School Holidays Activities Singapore – Where to Stay in Sentosa?

As you can see, there are so many fun places for you to explore during this March school holidays. If you want to explore Sentosa at a relaxing pace, I highly recommend you to check in a hotel inside the resort. In this way, you and your family or friends can slowly take time to go for all the little adventure the resort has to offer.

5 Fun Things You Must Do In March School Holidays FESTIVE

I personally recommend Hotel Festive as it’s one of the most affordable hotel in Sentosa. What’s more, the family room is really sweet and comfortable, perfect for 3-4 people. You can make your booking through hotel booking sites like Booking.com or Agoda. Personally I prefer Agoda as it offers the cheapest price among all.

Enjoy your holidays!

 

 

  • Looks like Singapore has lots to offer for spring break! I’ll make it there someday.

  • Summer always brings with it waves of nostalgia. As kids in school we used to awaith the summer school break to get away to some lovely place with our parents. Sentosa island is a lovely place to enjoy in the holidays. There are so many activities which children and adults can enjoy. We loved it when we were in Sentosa a few years ago.

    • Yes Sentosa is the ultimate getaway for travelers and locals like us. I’m glad you had a great time when you were in Singapore!

  • Wow, a hot spring! We missed that on our trip there, but did visit Sentosa, which is an interesting spot! Great tips!

    • I didn’t know about the hotspring until recently either. Check it out if you are here the next time!

  • You tempt me to book my tickets and fly down there.
    The hot water experience scared me… losing 6 toes! How painful it must have been!
    Love the adventure activities.

    • I can’t imagine losing 6 toes either… ouch… Hope to see you here soon!

  • That first activity made me laugh. I always associate Hotsprings with my time in Canada, where they are in beautiful natural pools, by a fast flowing river. Still, it looks you have plenty of things to keep the kids occupied in the school holidays.

    • I believe the hotsprings in Canada is a lot more beautiful than the one in Singapore. 🙂
      The hotspring here is really an exception lol
