What To Do In Singapore

Navigating a city for the first time isn't always easy. Luckily, we were fortunate enough to have our very own tour guides (Lou & Sid) to help us map the city. So, in the spirit of sharing our experience, I've created a little post on one of my favourite places - Sentosa Island. At the heart of Sentosa Island lies Resorts World, where Universal Studios sits among an array of shops, restaurants, and hotels. Sentosa Island reminded me of a place you dream of going when you were younger. Being an adult there felt much the same - I had the same feeling of excitement when I saw the Universal sign as I did circa 2002 Florida trip.

After a couple of snaps in front of said sign (had to be done), we decided upon the aquarium for our afternoons activity. Having spent a scary amount of time watching shark documentaries on Netflix, there is something about marine animals that is so fascinating. 

The S.E.A. Aquarium itself cost around S$38 for general admission. I'd recommend carving out a few hours if you're visiting as the place was HUGE. You begin by making your through the Maritime Experiential Museum, then as you enter the main aquarium you're met with a colossal archway, where sharks, turtles and other sea creatures swim over your head. Even behind glass sharks are pretty terrifying - always remember the Jaws vs Jaws scene in James Bond and shudder. The S.E.A. Aquarium is home to more than 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species, across into 49 different habitats, each one as fascinating as the next. It's not often I visit aquariums, but gawking at the weird and wonderful creatures was a cool day out and an experience we won’t forget.
