Sentosa hailed as Singapore’s playground was our next stop. It was 2.15 when we left for Mount Faber, our driver( not the friendly Mathews, it was sulky Thomas) dropped us there and gave a few instructions. He told us to take the cable car and asked us not to alight at the first stop which was harbor front. The second stop was Sentosa. We walked towards the queue, after a 15 minute wait, we boarded the cable car. This time unlike my first cable car ride in Malaysia where I got to see the rainforest vistas, here we saw the busy harbor of Singapore. Even as we were talking about the fantabulous water views,we sighted a beautiful castle down below(universal studio is also in sentosa).
On reaching Sentosa we walked towards Imbiah Lookout. Our first visit was to Underwater world oceanarium. We saw the under water world, pink dolphin show(only climax), had a luge ride(only my family, i stayed away), 4D movie etc., I will tell the rest through my pics.
We missed seeing/doing many things like butterfly park, songs of the sea and tiger tower although we had tickets. The lengthy queues and the rains robbed us of our time and joy.
At around 7.30, we started walking towards Beach car park where our driver said would be waiting for us. It was a lengthy walk over a steep pathway that took us down to Siloso. It was dimly lit by the decorative lighted trees. At some places, it was pitch dark that you had to take a cautious step. The rains had made the pathway slippery too. Even among all this, we did’nt forget to stop at the Merlion café.
At Siloso, there was so much to do and see, but we were short of time.
The original inhabitants of this place happily roaming around. Developing this resort has resulted in loss of rainforests and so many rainforest animals have lost their homes.
On our way to silosa, a click of resorts island sentosa
The merlion at merlion cafe,
The sentosa merlion is the biggest of all merlions in Singapore
This was the beginning and so the pathway was well lit.
beautiful lightings at some places , at some places there was absolutely no light
P.s: BTW Sentosa is derived from the sanskrit word Santhosa which means' peace and calm' in malay
