When you talk about Singapore, Sentosa has always been with the name. Located about 15minutes (Sing$2.10 MRT fare from Boon Keng to HarbourFront and Sing$3.00 Sentosa Express fare) away from Singapore City center, this reclaimed island is the home of the inimitable combination of exciting themed attractions. As people say, in Sentosa you’ll experience fun in all different ways such as entertainment, extreme sports adventure, educational tours, shopping, nature tripping, etc.
I was not able to visit all themed attractions in Sentosa since one day is not enough to do it. But let me tell you something about the places I got to stop by and experience the fun that Singaporeans have been telling the world.
By the way, the food at Sentosa is a bit costly but you can still find stores that offer budget meals like the pantry shop at The Forum. My lunch only cost Sing$5.20. We had our dinner back to a Hawker center at the top level of VivoCity. In there, I spent Sing$7.20.

Experience one of life’s greatest thrills in a controlled environment. Offering a safer and cheaper alternative to skydiving and located conveniently on Sentosa, iFly Singapore is a skydiving simulator that works by placing visitors into a vertical wind tunnel that recreates a freefall. iFly has packages all ages and experience levels, which means taking the plunge has never been easier.
The second day was an adventure at the climax and I got exhausted with all the stopovers we had at Sentosa. I was able to spend Sing$175.6 just for the admission fees and meals. Nonetheless, it was our best day in Singapore.
