My Singapore Ultimate Summer Vacation: Day THREE

For our third day in Singapore, my husband and I went to SENTOSA ISLAND! I had been here a couple of times before (the last time was in 2010), so I thought I knew what to expect. Let me tell you, SO MUCH has changed in the past three years! It was like my first time all over again with the number of new and exciting attractions it had to offer. Tip: You’ll need to devote an entire day in Sentosa in order to make the most of your trip. There’s just so much to see and do, it would be a waste if you didn’t have the time to do it all.

So for our first stop, we went to the world’s largest aquarium, called the S.E.A. AQUARIUM. Now, Carlos (my husband) loves fish with a passion. He used to breed them at one point in his life, and has always been fascinated by them. He seriously wanted to become a marine biologist, but somehow ended up becoming a contractor. So you can just imagine how excited he was to be here. He was so happy (and I was happy to see him happy)–the place has more than 800 species of marine animals, including manta rays, goliath groupers, napoleon wrasse, dolphins, sharks, moray eels and almost any sea creature you can imagine (except maybe a giant squid or a mermaid lol).

After the aquarium (and lunch) we spent the rest of the day exploring Sentosa Island, and boy, did we have a blast. We got to know more about Singapore’s rich history thru IMAGES OF SINGAPORE, went on the SKYLINE LUGE for a super fun downhill go cart experierence, saw a 360 degree Singapore view from the top with the TIGER SKY TOWER, tried the SENTOSA 4D WONDERLAND rides, toured the BUTTERFLY PARK & INSECT KINGDOM and went on the MEGAZIP ADVENTURE PARK. Whew. It was an action-packed day, and it was so much fun!

20130429_141411Of course, we had to take a photo with the MERLION!
