Sentosa is an entire island resort dedicated to fun for all ages. You want family-friendly amusement; head to Universal Studios Singapore, Adventure Cove Waterpark or S.E.A. Aquarium.You want some adventure; hit up iFly Singapore, Mega Adventure or The Flying Trapeze. You need some relaxation; then hit the links or stake your claim on miles of beaches, including Palawan Beach, the southernmost point of Continental Asia. And that's really only some of the myriad of activities you can do on Sentosa. 

While Sentosa is a vacation destination that could take an entire week to consume, we suggest that you set aside one day from touring Singapore's cultural sites for some island fun. Although some visitors found the conglomerate to be overwhelming, travelers agreed that the attractions are not only top-notch but really fun as well.

You can reach Sentosa by crossing the Sentosa Gateway, which connects the resort island to Singapore. Just take the MRT to the HarbourFront station, which is at the foot of the boardwalk. Once you're there, you can either walk across the bridge or take a trolley, bus, cable car or tram to the island. And come anytime because Sentosa welcomes visitors 24/7. Attraction hours, however, vary. For more information, check out Sentosa's website.
