I bought a package deal for Resorts World that was a huge win. Its on their website and a family deal including a family suite with tickets to universal studios, aquarium and waterworld. Hotels on sentosa cost a fortune so this was a great deal and less than the hotel i was looking at so we were off. We landed in singapore around 1pm and easily caught a cab to sentosa and our room was ready - fabulous! It has been 3 years since we've been to singapore so we thought we'd spend the afternoon wandering around the island and see what is happening. Man, this is the place to be! There is so much to do :) we walked up to the merlion and explained to the kids the history behind this, then walked up ... read more

Today we were awake early, not by choice but in anticipation of the day. We were up at 7:00am and didn't and didn't have to meet until 8:15am for breakfast. As it turned out it was just Bec and I for breakfast as the other two didn't show. We wandered across to the place where we'd had breakfast a few days earlier, still just as delish! Then Bec messaged Garath who met us back in the hotel lobby to catch a cab out to the mountain to do the cable car across to Sentosa Island. While Bec had a smoke I went into the bathrooms and they had a big glass wall with the view of Sentosa. It was amazing. We jumped on the cable car ... read more

We were up at 7:40am to meet at 8:45am today to head out to the MegaZip at Sentosa Island. We walked down to Dhoby Ghaut Station, jumped on the purple line to Harbour Front Station where we had some McDonalds for breakfast then changed trains to the Sentosa Express. We got off on the island, got lost and then found our way finally to the Adventure Park. We started with getting our harness fitted then walked up the hill toward the ropes course. Well, it was all smiles until I started. I did two sections shaking like crazy before I got to the 2nd pit stop and could barely make myself go any further, only problem was there was no way down. Once you start, you ... read more

Today, I wake up for breakfast. The hostel has free breakfast consisting of fruit, toast with pots of peanut butter, chocolate spread, butter and kaya (coconut jam) and a cuppa. I decided I was going to head for Sentosa Island today (an island resort south of Singapore). I got the tube to Harbour Point then caught the bus into Sentosa. It was a lovely sunny day. I did not realise it was going to be like a Disney World without the Disney, including Universal Studios. But still, it was nice just wandering around. I met a man named Ruhan from Sri Lanka as he asked me to take his photo, then got chatting and we ended up walking down to the beach together. I wanted to lose him after a while and I was getting antsy ... read more

Saturday, 13th July 2013 We have a magnificent natural harbour, one of the finest in the world. A ride in a cable car will provide the visitor with a magnificent panorama of the harbour. It will, I hope, at the same time make Singaporeans more conscious and more proud of their city, whose economic life blood flow through this great port." Dr Goh Keng Swee (15th February 1974) I woke up on Saturday morning thankful that I didn't have to go back to the office. Before long, I had put on my walking shoes and headed straight to the Cable Car Museum in Sentosa to continue with my museum-quests in Singapore. I chanced upon this museum on someone's blog the other day. He was telling that the admission was free even though the brochures stated that ... read more

According to Dad's guidebook which was published in 1985, Sentosa Island used to house an impressive golf course and a maritime museum. Now the whole island is a resort with a monorail which takes visitors from the beach to the hotels and the attractions. When I Googled the island way back in November I discovered that there was a Universal Studios on the island. Seeing as we both had fond memories of Universal in LA with various music tours, it seemed a great idea to kick back and scare ourselves sily. We took the slightly terrifying cable car from the fifteenth floor of a nearby tower across the bay to the beautiful island of Sentosa. The views of Singapore on the way over were stunning. The views of Andrew's pained face as we went over the ... read more

Budicek 8/00,na ranajky opat 4 toasty,docapovanie vody a hor sa za zabavou. Cestu som uz poznal,takze bezproblemova doprava do vivo city a odtial pesibusom na sentosa ostrov. Vo vivo city staci vyjst na promenadu a odtial je uz vidiet pesia cesta na ostrov. Skoda,ze som si to vcera nevsimol. Na chodniku sa nachadza aj posuvny pas,takze kto je lenivy slapat,staci na nho nastupit a potom s mensimi pesimi prestupmi medzi pasmi vystupit az pred vstupom. Pri pokladni treba zaplatit vstup na ostrov v hodnote 1sd. Chcel som to zaplatit kartou ale neslo to,mala suma. Po vstupe na ostrov nikde nikoho,bol som tu uz o 9/15. Prazdnota ale trvala iba do prichodu pred universal.Tu uz stali ludia v rade a cakali kedy sa tento zabavny park otvori. Tak som sa postavil a cakal. Vsimol som si,ze ludia ... read more

Natoze som v noci nemohol zaspat som sa dost skoro rano zobudil,uz o 7/30. Behol som na ranajky,4 toasty s arasidovym maslo,lekvarom a maslom. To arasidove maslo bolo super,nie ao tie humusy co predavaju u nas. Este som si docapoval vodu z vodovodua siel na mrt Farrer park a bezproblemov som sa dopravil na konecnu HarbourFront. Na konecnej sa nachadza mega obchodne centrum Vivo city. Tu nastali problemy. Chcel som ist na bus co ide na sentosa island,lenze som sa uplne domotal na znaceni a nakonec som skoncil na najdrahsej alternative na vlaku. Ako som este hladal bus tak som rozmyslal aj nad pesou alternativou ale dosol som nakoniec chodniku a po ceste sa mi ist veru nechcelo. Vlak bol riadne narvany,cez okienko som nakonec videl spravnu pesiu cestu na ostrov,takze zajtra uz vim kade mam ... read more

Our trip to the island was first getting to the top of Mount Faber - I would like to say we trekked up but we took a cab! At the top is where the Cable car starts. Just the two of us in the gondola so plenty of room they had a VIP gondola not sure what you get as extra for being a VIP maybe champers! Great view over the harbour you cannot count how many ships are waititheir the harbour incredible site. Couldn't get any good photos because of the haze - very similar to Hong Kong. Sentosa Island has Universal Studios, hotel and a casino. Very small so easy to wander around escalators also make it going from one level to the next. They have lovely gardens and a large Merlion. This is ... read more
