Sentosa Island

Useful Sightseeing Tips to Tour Sentosa Smartly

Most tourists visit Sentosa Island. Even locals like my family and myself pay a visit to Sentosa at least once a year. It's definitely an ideal playground for people on family vacation. Plan for at least a day's sightseeing in Sentosa. 

For first time visitors, check out the Six Attractions at Imbiah Lookup. They include:

  1. Images of Singapore
  2. The Merlion and Merlion Walk
  3. Sentosa Luge and Skyride
  4. Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom
  5. Cable Car
  6. Sentosa 4D Adventure

What not to Miss

Three things we always do when visiting Sentosa: Take the Luge and Skyride and see the amazing sea creatures at the SEA Aquarium. The last thing is to have a nice picnic at one of the three Sentosa Beaches.

Sentosa Luge

Sentosa Beach

One of the over-rated show, Song of the Sea is a must-see water show by the sea located at Siloso Beach. Formerly known as Musical Fountain, it is a complete change after a major renovation. I used to end my trip with the show, where the hightlight is on fountain-like water spray dancing harmoniously with the background classical music. In addition, it was enhanced with colorful lighting which changes constantly with the rhythm of the background music. Now filled with lasers, pyrotechnics, bursts of fire, water jets, pop music and a live cast, the show has become more like a state-of-the-art entertainment. I wasn't impressed with all the new additions. However, it's still a good experience if you have not yet seen it.

Songs of the Sea has been replaced by Wings of Time

Songs of the Sea ended its last performance on 4 May 2014. It was replaced by Wings of Time from 17 Jun 2014 onwards.
