Sentosa Island is a man-made resort island located on the southern coast of Singapore which is linked to the city by road routes, cable car facilities, monorails and boardwalks. The Island is home to the popular amusement theme park, Universal Studios. Those in for rip-roaring adventures can avail the cable cars to the Island which will provide an aerial view of the Island, the skyline of Singapore and the harbour.
Although the whole Island is made for recreational purposes, there are a few things which one should not miss while in Sentosa. The Tiger Sky Tower is a 110m tall air-conditioned observation tower fitted with glass windows offering panoramic views which stretches up to Indonesia. The Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom houses 15000 vibrant, animate butterflies of about 50 different species and over 3000 species of uncommon insects. Like the Butterfly Park, there is an S.E.A. Aquarium with rare and stunning marine life which gives tourists a feeling similar to underwater watching experiences. Just behind the Aquarium is The Royal Albatross, a luxury ship that is used for hosting private parties or cruising purposes.
The Wings of Time is a spectacular extravaganza that replaced the Songs of the Sea in 2014. It makes use of water screens, projectors, laser jets and flames in an outdoor gallery accommodating 2500 guests. Then there is the Sentosa 4D Adventure land which is Southeast Asia’s first 4D theatre having four unique events, a movie, a roller-coaster ride, a game and an experience ride. Apart from these, Sentosa has iFly, a wind tunnel; Wave House Sentosa, first artificial barrelling wave of Singapore; Madame Tussauds, an award winning wax museum and Kidzania, interactive park for children.
The adventures in Sentosa are incomplete without a visit to the Universal Studios, Southeast Asia’s first Hollywood theme park with enticing rides and entertainment waiting. Singapore is also planning to start its first bungee jumping gallery and two more nature parks.
