Singapore – Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island
Sentosa Island is many things in one. Kids can go to a butterfly park, zip over the rain forest canopy, meet pink dolphins, go on theme park rides, or swim at the beach. Spend the day, and stay on until evening to see the Song of the Sea or Crane Dance shows. The island is divided into four main areas: Imbiah Lookout, Siloso Point, Beaches, and Sentosa World Resort.
Imbiah Lookout –
      Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom Museum – The attraction of the butterfly park is thousands of exotic, colorful butterflies, and a fireflies enclosure where you can see thousands of fireflies glimmering in the dark.
      Merlion statue – Take the elevator to the top of the 37 meter high Merlion statute for views of Sentosa Island. There are two viewing decks, one from inside the lion's mouth! Little kids will like the Merlion Walk lined with fantasy creatures.
      Images of Singapore – Images of Singapore dramatizes the history of Singapore with life-sized dioramas. Check out Sir Stamford Raffles, the English governor of Singapore, the surrender of Singapore in World War II, a Malay wedding, a fire-walking festival.
      Sentosa Nature Discovery – In the center are hands-on activities to learn about the habitats, birds, plants and butterflies of Sentosa Island. Then head outside for a 1 mile Nature Walk through the rain forest (keep your eyes peeled for macaque monkeys and gecko lizards).
      MegaZip Adventure Park – Ziplines over the rain forest and Silosa Beach, aerial obstacle course in the treetops, and rock climbing. Fun for everyone in the family
Siloso Point –
      Underwater World Singapore and Dolphin Lagoon – This oceanarium has a large collection of tropical marine life, including a Touch Pool where you can pet banded-bamboo sharks (like sandpaper), sting rays (very slimy) and starfish. Travel on an underwater tunnel, meet Gracie the Dugong, watch pink dolphins and fur seals shows, and learn about marine biology.
      Fort Siloso – At the top of Mt. Imbiah, take a look at Fort Siloso, the remains of a pre WWII British fort where you can still see the guns.
Beaches –
Sentosa
    Bring your swimsuits, and play in the warm tropical waters at Palawan Beach. White sand beach, shallow warm water, snack bars close by. At the Palawan Amphitheatre are free animals shows with macaque monkeys, monitor lizards and parrots.
    At Wave House, older kids who want to try surfing can try out the powerful wave machine, under the guidance of surfing instructors.
    Walk the suspension bridge to a bit of land that is the "southernmost point of continental Asia."
      Tip: Hop on the beach trams to ride between the beaches.
Sentosa World Resort –
      Universal Studios Singapore, very popular with the locals, has themed attractions, such as Lost World, Madagascar, Hollywood, with rides galore.
 

Maritime Xperiential Museum – Singapore has always been a maritime city, and today is one of the biggest ports in the world. This museum, opening soon, is dedicated to the Maritime Silk Route between Asia, the Middle East and Europe, with sailing ships, pirates, and sunken treasure.

Tip: To get to Sentosa Island, take the cable car from Mount Faber, ride the Sentosa Express bus, or simply hop a taxi to the island.
