Kids' 1st time to Sentosa

Posted by Dawn at Monday, August 10, 2009
Since Caleb was born, I had not been to Sentosa. So, it has been 2 years already.

As for Underwater World, it has been eons...I think the last time I was there was probably when I was quite young? (ya,I'm old now)

So finally, making use of the long weekend holiday, CT and I brought the family out to Sentosa, mainly to visit the Underwater World.


It was raining in the morning, but cleared when we arrived. It was free for the kids. So, we just paid for 3 adults (including Vicky). There was discount for UOB cards. So we made use of that!

Here's Danielle who just woke up while we were walking towards the attraction.


When we reached, Danielle looked pretty excited as she smiled at the fishes.

There were quite a lot of interesting exhibits, including the sea and leafy dragon (which I saw before in Australia).


I also like to look at the jellyfish(note: only LOOK, not get stung by it as I remember having gotten stung by the tentacles before and left lines on my body which stings so bad when I went diving)



Love looking at the huge spider crabs as well as entering the tunnel to view the fishes and sharks as we stood on the travelator.



It reminds me of the time in Sydney, Australia where me and my brother actually swam with the sharks. It was a cool and scary experience. Would love to do that again- in the open sea this time!

Anyway, back to the Underwater World....

We managed to feed the sting rays. It was quite fun as they sucked the food from our hands like vacuum cleaners.


Caleb also had his go at touching the sting ray.


We also went to the Dolphin Lagoon to see the pink dolphin show. Nothing spectacular. Even felt that the whole thing seemed so low budget and run down. Think Singapore can definitely do more to improve.


Even Sentosa still felt to be quite a run down and messy place. The island does have a lot of potential but right now, looking at the shuttle bus situation where the bus is always fully packed and the construction still going on in a lot of places, I would not recommend anyone to go there yet.

However, it was nice to see the construction of the Integrated Resort and Casino as well as the Universal Studio Theme Park -rollercoasters. Quite awesome.




I do hope the bus situation and the rest of the attractions can be more organised and interesting if they really want to attract more people.
