You have not indicated your flight times so hard to comment on the first and last day.

I would swop Day 3 with Day 4 as it can be hard to get up early after Night Safari. It is hot if you get to the bird park late.

The rest looks okay.

Looks ok to me. Not a very tiring itinerary in my opinion.

Hello @minxbaby, @teebs2593. Thanks for the response!

Our arrival and departure are Jan 20 1230AM and Jan 27 6AM respectively.

Noted on swapping Day 3 and 4.

Are we too conservative on our itinerary? If yes, what days can we add more activities?

My suggested revisions to your itinerary:

Day 1 - since you are visiting Marina Bay Sands, include Spectra light show at the Event Plaza, Showtime: 8pm and 9pm

Day 2 - I would move River Safari here as it will take about 2-3 hours, at the most. If you start at the zoo early, say at opening at 8:30am, you can be through by about 4pm. Nip over to River Safari as it closes at 7pm.

Day 3 - Move Jurong Bird Park here followed by Chinatown. Best to do Chinatown in the late afternoon/ evening. The Heritage Centre opens until 8pm after that you can walk around Chinatown as by the time you are here, the bazaar and Chinese New Year light-up will be on.

Day 4 - Little India, Kampong Glam and Bugis (if time permits)

You can visit the Indian Heritage Centre, Sultan Mosque and do some shopping. Take a break after lunch and start fresh to the Night Safari.

Day 5-7 - no change.

My $0.02. Hope this helps.

You can include Clifford Pier and The Fullerton (near Merlion Park), the Fountain of Wealth, Esplanade and Helix Bridge (very nice at night and near the Spectra show) on Day 1. Check the Touch Water timings.


I feel River Safari+ Night Safari is quite a good combination as you can start queueing for Night Safari early. In the morning, you can do something light like enjoy the pool or visit a temple (eg Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum). If you finish the Zoo early, then River Safari is an option.

Kampong Glam, Haji Lane and Arab Street are worth a visit. They are often featured in travelogue shows. You may want to visit Clarke Quay at night if you are interested in nightlife or just to enjoy the colourful lights along the river.
