Staying Indoors along Orchard Road with Kids

This week, most of us in Singapore were trapped indoors because of the very bad haze, which was so bad that school had to be cancelled.  But if you are visiting Singapore with kids and encounter haze (tough luck), here are some places you can keep your kids occupied along Orchard Road – free from the haze!

Orchard Road with kids indoor areas feature

Starting from Orchard MRT all the way to Dhoby Ghaut MRT, let’s take a trip down Orchard Road to find the family-friendly spots for a great day out with the kids!

1.  In Good Company (ION Orchard)

A relatively new kid on the block, In Good Company is a shop+eat+play all in one concept store that recently opened at ION Orchard. You can do your shopping in this spacious shop, where passageways are wide enough for strollers to pass through easily.  And in the midst of the kids clothing, there is a little play area for young children.  And right next next to it, a cafe by Plain Vanilla Bakery.

  • there seems to be so much kid friendly stuff in Singapore! I have always wanted to go to Charlie Brown Cafe, they used to have one in Seoul Incheon Airport but unfortunately when we were there last it had closed down.

      Yes, Singapore is amazingly packed with kids-friendly stuff despite her small size. We have two Charlie Brown Cafe in Singapore, and frankly I prefer the other branch at One KM (near Paya Lebar MRT). But that branch is generally less accessible to tourists, unless your hotel is in the Paya Lebar area.
