Singapore 5D/5N itinerary recommendation (Aug end)please

We are traveling to Singapore for 5 days and 5 nights at the end of august 2019 with our two boys(13 and 11). Can you please recommend the must see places in Singapore and around? We prefer to keep the trip laid back and not hurry ourselves but hit the top attractions. Any hotels recommendation is appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance

For me, the most important factor in hotel location is to be close to an MRT station.

I guess everyone's top attractions depend on your interests. For instance, I love visiting the Orchid Garden inside the Botanical Gardens. I have no interest in Sentosa (theme Park) or the Sands (casino). The Singapore Tourist Board has excellent info. Take a look at their info and see what things appeal to you.

Top-Rated Tourist Attractions in Singapore: Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Botanic Gardens, Singapore Zoo, Orchard Road, Singapore Flyer, Raffles Hotel Singapore, Chinatown, Sentosa Island, Clarke Quay, Universal Studios Singapore, Night Safari Singapore

The newly constructed Marina Bay has most of the city's luxury and high-end chain hotel options. Across Marina Bay is the Civic District, also known as the Downtown Core, where many of the city's civic buildings and museums are located. Clarke Quay is one of the oldest areas of the city, next to the Singapore River, yet recent redevelopment has made it the city's newest hot spot to stay and play. You'll find a range of accommodations in the wonderfully congested Bugis area, with most of the city's budget hotel options in the neighboring Chinatown and Little India. The area on and around Orchard Road, Singapore's main luxury shopping boulevard, is also home to many mid-range and high-end hotel choices

With two kids traveling in mid-summer, I highly recommend booking a hotel or serviced apartment with a large family-friendly pool. Just check the pool hours and age limits. For example, the large Club level pool at the Oasia Downtown does not allow kids under 16 or 18 (forget which) in that pool or even the lounge area around it.

Also take some time to learn the mall and other linked walking routes that let you walk through large parts of the central city in air conditioned comfort; also handy during rainstorms.

A serviced apartment might be a good bet for you; there are lots of them and many offer units with their own washer/dryer.

Hotel choice is also budget restricted.
As Kathie said getting a location close to public transportation is important though I found cab fares to be reasonable.
You may want to see the iconic Merlion. Clarke Quay is a place to go to in the evening BTW. Not much is open during the day as we discovered.
Singapore is well know for numerous hawker centers or food courts with a large variety of food at reasonable prices. In fact about 15 mos. ago some were awarded Michelin stars!10 ?Michelin? Hawker Stalls In Singapore ? From Tai Hwa Bak Chor Mee, Hawker Chan, To A Noodle Story ? DanielFoodDiary.com
Do try the dumplings at:https://www.dintaifung.com.sg/
I haven't been to it but heard there is a very nice WW II museum there if that interests you.https://www.littledayout.com/2018/02...tes-singapore/
Its always hot there so dress accordingly and drink plenty of H2O.
Columbia for one has a line of clothing with sun block blended into the fabric. It worked for me when were in Kuala Lumpur last year which is basically like Singapore in terms of weather.
Have fun. We loved Singapore. Its clean and safe. If I won a huge lotto and could figure out how to reduce the average temperature by 15 degrees F I'd move there. .
