Sentosa Attractions

What to See in Sentosa

Sentosa Island, which is hugely popular with both locals and tourists alike, is Singapore's mega theme-park on an island. The offshore island of Sentosa, once the domain of tropical forest and rocky coasts, has been redeveloped into a sprawling amusement park where you can swim, sunbathe, whizz down water slides, visit butterfly parks and wax museums, and eat to your heart's content.

Sentosa will take at least one whole day if you want to visit the various amusement sites. It's also a great place to stay overnight, to soak in the beach holiday mood and be away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are camping grounds, a hostel and two luxury resorts, the Sentosa Resort & Spa and the Shangri-La's Rasa Sentosa Resort.

Going to Sentosa Island is all part of the fun if you go there by cable-car or ferry. The cable-car service is from the HarbourFront Centre (previously World Trade Centre), and you will get a good bird's eye view of Mount Faber, one of Singapore highest points, during the ride. For SG$120, you can also experience a romantic "sky" dinner for two aboard the cable car on Friday and Saturday nights. Ferry rides, another enjoyable way to get to Sentosa, are also available from the HarbourFront Centre.

Alternatively, you could take one of the special buses running to-and-fro the mainland and Sentosa. You can take Sentosa Bus Service E from Orchard Road, Service C from Tiong Bahru MRT, or Service A from the  HarbourFront Centre. Admission to Sentosa Island is SG$ 6 for adults and SG$ 4 for children between 3 and 12 years. There will be separate charges for the various attractions on the island.

Once on the island, there's a free bus service that runs round the island and departs every 10 minutes. There's also a free monorail service that makes a loop round the island, and gives you a scenic view of Sentosa. Otherwise, you could rent a bike from the kiosk near the ferry terminal.

Below is a list and information of the many attractions on Sentosa Island.

Crane Dance - Three Great Light Shows

During the day there is simply a large, plain-looking box sitting in the water, but at night the birds wind out of their slumber to perform a courtly dance of love. The premise is simple, the blue crane and the pink crane fall for each other - but there is still something magical about this performance, which happens on Thursday to Monday and public holidays from 21:00. Flashes of light and dramatic music accompany the performance as the large steel structures move gracefully through the night sky; and their chests are emblazoned with large screens that add an extra dimension to the story, which ends with the cranes flying away into the night. It makes a great end to a day at Sentosa theme park. Read More...
