Singapore Trip: Sentosa Island

Going to Sentosa Island had never been difficult for us though it made our travel a bit longer than usual. Since Sentosa Boardwalk has already opened on the 30th of January, a couple of weeks before our arrival, I encouraged hubby to go to Sentosa by foot. The heat of the sun wasn’t a problem at all because the Boardwalk is covered with fiber glass. Aside from that, using the travellator would make your walk to Sentosa faster than what you thought.

Entry to Sentosa Boardwalk costs $1 using EZ link card for quick access. Well, it is much cheaper than taking the train at Vivo City for $3.πŸ˜‰ We were not able to explore that much the Boardwalk because of the scorching heat of the sun. Like what I always say, there is always a next time. But when?! Lol! The first attraction that we had seen was the Universal Studios. USS ticket for adults costs $66 on weekdays and $72 on weekends while kids age 3-12 can get a ticket for $48 on weekdays and $52 on weekends.

How did we go back to Vivo City? Taking the train to Vivo City was our only option for we had to go back again (for the 3rd time) to the Fountain of Wealth before our flight. We took the train at Little Imbiah Station. Geee, it was free! Teehee! ;))

 

Tips:

  • Go to Sentosa by walking through the boardwalk for $1 only. (ez link card)
  • Use the train in going back to Vivo City, free of charge.
  • Best time to get around Sentosa is 4pm.
  • Water in the drinking fountain is drinkable.

      yup, tama si Jules… mainit kasi. mahirap mag-ikot-ikot sa Sentosa at magpicture-picture kapag sobrang init like what we experienced. past 1pm na kasi kami nagpunta kasi pabalik-balik kami sa fountain of wealth. i was planning to take a lot of pictures of the boardwalk kaya lang nakakapaso ang init kaya hanggang dun lang kami sa covered walkway. buti nung nagsky-ride kami hindi na masyadong mainit. hehehe.

    ^ because of the heat? hehe I think if you have no plans going inside USS, 4pm is ok. I went to Sentosa around that time also and leave by 9m. It’s really hot here in SG, or mababa lang patience ko sa init? Everytime mamasyal ako nagsstart ako around 4-5pm na. 7pm naman maliwanag paπŸ˜‰

      I agree with you Jules, mainit talaga sa SG pero mas mainit pa rin sa KL. hehehe. Even 10am, nakakapaso na rin ang init ng araw. Masarap umikot sa Sentosa bandang hapon na para ma-enjoy mo yung places at success ang picture picture.πŸ˜‰ Siyempre kung pupunta ng USS, aba dapat buong maghapon andun para sulit naman yung bayad! hehehe. Di na baleng masunog ang balat, worth it naman di ba?!πŸ˜‰ Thanks for dropping by….

      Wow, you’re in Singapore now?! Cool!πŸ˜‰ You know what, it doesn’t matter if you’re using a point & shoot camera in taking pictures of places where you’d been. What matters most is that you’re able to capture the moments you had at that time. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to have one soon…πŸ˜‰
