Last Sunday was the first Easter day. Normally we are often with the family and we have dinner. Now we decided to go for another Easter than normally and visit the island of Sentosa. That was not convenient.
We took the subway to Harbourfront Station. When you get off the subway it is immediately clear where you have to walk to, everywhere is indicated how to get to Sentosa. For $4 per person, you have a return ticket with the Sentosa Express. This monorail stops at a few points on the island and from this subway, you get a good view of Sentosa.
The island itself is a big madhouse. Everywhere on Sentosa there are huge resorts and for the whole family, there is a lot to do here. From a day on the beach to a trip to the Universal Studios. You’ll also find Madame Tussaud, a mega Adventure Park, a Skywalk and a Water Park. It is therefore not surprising that in addition to tourists, this island is also visited by the local population.
Via a small bridge on the beach, which is just wide enough to pass each other, you can walk to the southernmost point of Southeast Asia. If you think you are looking out over the endless sea, then you are wrong. Unfortunately, the view is not very promising. On the coast, there are many container ships and drilling rigs.
Despite the many people and the not so nice view, we had a very nice day. Jeroen had already been to Sentosa once and it was nice to go here together now. Singapore is Jeroen’s second or third home (Tiel is of course still there in our minds) so it is a great opportunity to get to know more from this country as well. Just don’t go to Sentosa on a public holiday. Really, don’t do it! We warned you!
