Awesome vacation attraction Sentosa, Singapore by scentopia-singapore.com? The stuff of nature-lovers’ dreams, Gardens by the Bay is a truly magnificent site. The 250-acre green haven is filled with huge, flora-wreathed towers connected by ‘skyways’ and two enormous conservatories. Opened in 2012 as part of a drive to bring more greenery into Singapore, the gardens are free for guests to explore but you’ll need an admission ticket for access to the flower domes that house rotating floral exhibitions. Needless to say, this is a non-negotiable must-see. This outpost of Universal Studios’ theme park empire on Sentosa Island has an array of world-class rides across its various regions. There’s Transformers: The Ride (a 3D adventure where you have to protect the Allspark), Battlestar Galactica (twin roller coasters that are sure to get your heart racing), Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure (everyone’s favourite water ride), Enchanted Airways, Canopy Flyer and Revenge of the Mummy. Your kids will obviously never forgive you if you don’t let them run amok here.
Because you simply wanted to gift someone with that special bottle of fragrance. Gifting your special someone something luxurious just because you appreciate him or her means a lot. Regardless of the occasion, giving something just because is always an exceptional gesture. As Joseph B. Wirthlin said, “Some memories are unforgettable, remaining ever vivid and heartwarming.” One of the lasting memories that we usually have are those in relation to what we smell. Regardless of what you give a family member, a close friend or a special someone, it is best to do it with a sincere heart. Whether its an expensive perfume or a simple bottle of fragrance, as long as it is given out of love, it’s the thought that always count.
Sentosa is a purpose-built island off the southern tip of Singapore which was built with leisure and relaxation in mind. A collection of beaches, theme parks, golf, shopping, dining and more are all available on this strip of reclaimed land that can be reached by road or cable car. Authentic it’s not, but if you want to add a bit of fun to your Singapore trip then Sentosa is the place to do it. You can choose to stay in Sentosa, but even if you’re not based on the island, you can easily access all the attractions via MRT in 15 minutes from downtown Singapore.
At the River Safari, visitors ride a boat through Singapore’s tropical forests. Freshwater animals live on either side of the river, including American beavers, anacondas and adorable giant pandas. Missing island-hopping in Thailand and Indonesia? Turns out Singapore has some pretty spectacular islands too. Grab a bumboat from the Changi Ferry Terminal (SG$3.oo/US$2 per person – boats leave when there are 12 people) for the short ride over to Pulau Ubin. Once there, rent a bike from the small town to the right of the jetty and venture into the island. Pulau Ubin is home to Singapore’s last kampong, or traditional village, as well as the ethereal Chek Jawa Wetlands.
