With a total land area of less than 800 square kilometres, the small city-state of Singapore has had the reputation of being a very strict country. Many believe the country’s rigid adherence to rules has driven its phenomenal economic growth.
Today, Singapore is better known as a tax haven, making it a popular investment site. However, to visitors, it’s also a place brimming with fun. The island nation is home to Changi Airport, the world’s best airport five years in a row now, and also plays host to the Marina Bay Sands and its world-famous infinity pool.
You can get exclusive online deals to Singapore attractions when you purchase a Sentosa family pass. If you’re planning a trip filled with exciting adventure, one definite must-visit: Sentosa, Singapore’s man-made island resort half a kilometre away, where entertainment, especially for families with kids, is spelled in big, bold letters.
Getting there from the Singapore mainland is actually an adventure by itself, as you can take either the Sentosa Skyride, which is an open-air cable car, or the Sentosa Express monorail.
Once you arrive there, these are some of the great attractions waiting for you.
Adventure Cove Waterpark
Found within Resorts World Sentosa, the park offers two unique attractions–Ray and Rainbow Reef– that let visitors interact with more than 20,000 fishes. For some added excitement, the park has seven exciting water rides, plus a host of other water-based activities.
White sand beaches
There are 3.2 kilometres of white sand that’s imported from Malaysia, Indonesia, and Cambodia. All seven of the island’s beaches are man-made and offer unique adventures for everyone.
This is Singapore’s answer to Hong Kong’s Symphony of Lights. An audio-visual feast for the whole family, it features two love-birds as they dance in courtship accompanied by music and lights.
Butterfly and Insect Kingdom
This attraction features more than 3,000 species of insects plus jungle parrots, lizards, and snakes set against a tropical backdrop. There are also a lot of vegetation and flowers, and some waterfalls that keep the surrounding area cool and refreshing.
Tiger Sky Tower
At a height of 131 metres, this is the tallest viewing tower in Singapore and can be reached via a cabin that slowly rises until it reaches the top. There, you will get a 360-degree view across the island.
Also a feature of Resorts World Sentosa, this theme park offers 24 rides to go along with seven themed zones, each with its unique shows and attractions:
– Hollywood, with its own “Walk of Fame”;
– New York, based on post-modern NYC;
– Sci-Fi City, featuring futuristic settings;
– Ancient Egypt;
– The Lost World, including Jurassic Park and Waterworld regions;
– Far Far Away, based on the Shrek movie’s kingdom;
– Madagascar, including all characters in the movie series.
