For those that have been to Singapore what would you need to budget per day for a family of 4, with the kids under 10?  $400-500 AUD a day?
Would be doing touristy things such as Universal, Sentosa Island activities. Youngest child not a huge fan of Asian cuisine but everyone else is, so hawker markets out for eating.  Flights & Acc already booked and paid for with Buffett breakfast included.

All you need to do is look up the cost of the activities you'll be doing then if you'll be eating hawker-style allow $10pp/meal and a bit more for transport.
Put aside some money for shopping at Decathlon.

This really,

We don't have a budget as such we just eat at Hawkers centres and know in our heads the cost of the main things and a bit more in my head (I am the money person at our place) and go with that - budgets are a good idea but foe other people :smile:

We spent about $400 a day for the 4 of us with breakfast too. With Universal I would allow $500 a day.
Mine didn’t want to eat the Asian cuisine so we ate out a lot. Been twice and we loved it!

We have Decathlon in Australia too BTW.. one near my house.

For Singapore $400/ day for family of 4 without accommodation is very generous.  For Universal Studio, it's easy to spend $400-500.

Chicken rice is the safest option for young children.  Most children enjoys rice :-)

Hawker centres often have a Western Cuisine shop in them. There is a lot of Pizza and pasta places as well. Gourmet hamburger places often around as well as lots of coofee shops, like Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. And finally of course there's the big fast food chains if all else fails.
