It was an early August night and I was on board the cable car on my way back from Sentosa Island to Singapore's HarbourFront station.
My mind was flashing back to the past few hours of day time when we signed up for a day in Sentosa. But before I list my activities of the day, here is a little introduction to Sentosa.
Sentosa is Singapore’s showpiece island resort getaway and leisure destination, located within 15 minutes from the central business and shopping districts.
But if you are on a short visit to Singapore and yet want to spend a day in Sentosa, here is what you can experience in almost half a day.
Start your Sentosa experience on a high by riding the Singapore Cable Car Sky Network from Faber Peak Singapore or HarbourFront stations into the island. With six stops to choose from, this is the perfect way to explore Sentosa’s multiple attractions! A round trip Skypass is $28 (SGD)
Are you ready to sign up for a fancy flight on the highest open-air panoramic ride in Singapore? Well, experience SkyHelix Sentosa!
The breathtaking 360° view stretches from Sentosa to the Keppel Bay area and the Southern Islands.
SkyHelix Sentosa got its name from its vertical helix-like structure! During the night, it is illuminated offering a different kind of experience.
You can make an advance booking of ride slots through their online store and partners.
• One of the highest vantage points on Sentosa
• Open-air scenic ride that ascends in a gentle spiral motion
• All tickets come with a choice of one standard non-alcoholic beverage or an exclusive SkyHelix Sentosa souvenir
Cost: Adult: (SGD) $16.20 or $18
Child (4 – 12 years old): (SGD) $13.50 or $15
We are talking about Madame Tussauds Singapore.
Capture your best selfie alongside wax figures of famous personalities like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lady Gaga and Shah Rukh Khan at this popular wax statue attraction.
Cost: (SGD) $30.00 per adult.
The best way to wrap up your Sentosa day is to give yourself a visual treat with one of the most spectacular light water shows about friendship and courage in Singapore. Staged nightly this show is truly a spellbinding concoction of laser, fire and water effects set to a majestic soundtrack. The show ends with a fireworks display that is astounding to say the least.
This award-winning night show, Wings of Time, now revamped with even more pyrotechnics effects! It is immersive and set against the backdrop of an open sea. You are zapped by the special effects as Shahbaz, a prehistoric bird, and his friends travel across beautiful landscapes and journey through the mysteries of time.
Shahbaz together with his friends, Rachel and Felix, travel across time, featuring artistic interpretations of the Industrial Revolution, the Silk Road era, Mayan Pyramids, Underwater World and African Savanna.
