After spending a little more than 7 months exploring Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, it was time to head south to Malaysia. We spent nearly 2 months in Malaysia and stayed in all types of accommodation, hotels, hostels, apartments, and homes. We were also scoping this area out as a potential long-term residence, in the future. This was the last couple of months in our Southeast Asia tour, so we were a bit tired of moving fast and were looking for a few options to help slow us down. We also spent 2 nights in Singapore, which we will include at the end.
Singapore is a wonderful place to visit, as it is so clean and organized. That does however come at a price, so be a bit prepared for a little sticker shock, as Singapore is expensive. That doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the country for a little bit. We had a wonderful 48 hours in Singapore with kids. We want to share what we have learned with you so you can get ideas of things to do in Singapore with kids and a couple of options on where to stay.
As we’ve talked about before, Heidi and I are scuba divers (we even met during a dive trip). We love being underwater, and experiencing a completely different environment. The kids are big fans of snorkeling, so all of us were ready for a day of fun at the SEA Aquarium. Technically it’s the S.E.A. Aquarium, and it stands for Southeast Asia, but you get the drift.
This is our first amusement park in Southeast Asia, and we were all excited to go to LEGOLAND Malaysia! I’d always heard great things about Legoland in general, and as a fan of Legos, this turned out to be a lot of fun.
Being a tall person has it’s advantages. But when traveling, being tall sometimes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. There has been many a time that I have wished that I was a bit shorter. Some extra headroom on the bus would be nice. If I were a foot shorter, I would actually have some legroom on airplanes. This go around though, there were times where I was wishing I was short. Like really short. As in 2 inches short. You must be thinking, “He’s finally flipped his lid!”. Well…no. We’re at Legoland Malaysia, and I’m talking about the Lego Star Wars Miniland exhibit!
With 20 water slides, a wave pool, floating river and splash area, LEGOLAND Water Park is the place to hang out and cool down on a hot day in Malaysia. This is the perfect place for small children, as there is so much available at this park for those ages. We all had fun and enjoyed our time visiting the park.
