Why do most tourists always post their photos with Universal Studio globe background?. It has become an informal agreement, if you take pictures like that then you have legitimately visited Lee Kuan Yew’s country.
Then have you ever thought about exploring the whole of Sentosa Island?….Yea, one more, all of that was done by walking….Could it?
Have you ever been, Donny?….”Crazy backpacker” like me was asked like that …. Yea, I ever did it….until I got fatigue.
It is my story….
How is your story….don’t do it, tiring!
Get off at Harbor Front MRT station, I exit via Vivo Mall. In mall, I tried to didn’t interested with nice goods there or even beauty Singapore’s ladies. Just need to focus on finding a sign which will direct you to Sentosa Boardwalk.
By the way, wait….Do You know? What “Sentosa Boardwalk” is?
If you go to Sentosa Island by bus or car then you willn’t find this floating road. Especially if you ride Sentosa Express monorail or Cable Car….Hmmh, when will I be able to use it?…. hahaha, I ever once… just read it.
Yes …. Sentosa Boardwalk is a 600m long pedestrian path which is made as if it floats on sea to connect Sentosa Island with Singapore mainland….Very cool.
If Sentosa Boardwalk is for pedestrians, then where is car lane and monorail line to Sentosa Island ?.
Yes, it’s available….You just need to walk off the lane on left of Sentosa Boardwalk, then you will find the both of lane.
That are its lanes….
Because of free cost seeker, so I went to Sentosa Island by….by walk.
Please, no hurry in walking….yes, fast in reaching destinations isn’t important because you willn’t be able to see many awesome views.
Here is it….results when I was observing on a side of Sentosa Boardwalk decks.
Automatic Fare Gates at end of Sentosa Boardwalk was covered in cloth, a sign that I didn’t need to pay USD 0,75 to entering Sentosa Island…. I think it was a special promo for something in that day.
Trick Eye Museum
Do you want to go in there?….Just prepare about USD 15.
Sentosa Resort World Sign
The walking path led me to entering artificial cave below “Sentosa Resort World” nameplate.
Malaysian Food Street
After a long time, I was peevish….Starving began to hit after getting the photo. But I knew, There is Malaysian Food Street after Trick Eye Museum.
To save money, I suggest filling your drink bottles at free water station next to ticketing counter near Sentosa Island entrance.
Even though I have been here twice before, I came here again for third time….you wasted your time, Donny….Hahaha.
Many tourists have had enough until here when traveling to Sentosa. So, what are other attraction which located after Universal Studio?
Lake of Dreams
Walking to south from Universal Studio globe, You will find Lake of Dreams. When afternoon, Itsn’t interesting. But if You come at night, this place will present an interesting choreography which combines audio, fire, water and light.
The Maritime Experimental Museum
It’s right next to Lake of Dreams, here it is:
Heading south pass the pool with many small fountains like this:
Then it will be clearly seen the brown Merlion statue. This half lion and fish statue is often called as the twin of same statue in Merlion Park. You can follow Sentosa Merlion Tour for USD 13,5 to go to top of the statue from inside and enjoy beauty of Sentosa island from a height of 37m.
At night, there is an audio-laser show with Sentosa Merlion as the object.
Sentosa Merlion Walk
Behind Sentosa Merlion is a 120-meter Merlion Walk. Pedestrian path with a mosaic theme park concept with fountains along park will spoil your eyes in hot weather of Sentosa Island.
Sentosa Express Beach Station
At end of Merlion Walk, there are two large buildings. A building on left side is Beach Station. Sentosa Express user tourists who will travel along southern coast of Sentosa usually get off here.
Well, on right side is i-Fly Singapore building. Everyone who want to play indoor sky diving have to spend USD 66,5.
Located right on beach, I decided to turn right towards Siloso Beach. Oh yes, if you turn left you will see Palawan Beach and Tanjong Beach. Just use beach tram which operate along coastline if you don’t want to walk!.
Along Siloso Beach Walk, I encountered several Machine Gun Pillboxes. This Singapore defense line was built in 1936-1940 during Second World War.
You need to walk 700m from i-Fly Singapore to Siloso Beach and play as much water as you like there.
Interested ?? try to go around the island!.…definitely fatigue and sunburned….Hahaha.
