Recently we headed to Singapore as a family and had a ‘how-to guide’ published on Expedia, which I was chuffed about. The second part of our trip is now live on the site and details the highlight of the trip which was our experience on Sentosa Island.
In the article, Family Fun on Sentosa Island, Singapore’, you can find out why it makes such an awesome family-friendly destination and get some travelling tips if yo
u’re considering a trip to Singapore.
Sentosa Island, was definitely our fave part of the trip. We stayed in a really good location at the Movenpick Hotel, which unfortunately didn’t have ice cream on tap, but was ideally located to experience all the island’s attractions.
We spent most of our time at the kids’ favourite place, Resort World Sentosa, which was just a couple of minutes away by tram from the Movenpick. When travelling with kids it’s important to be able to get around quickly and easily and the tram, which I go into detail about in the article, is brilliant. We got a free pass as temporary residents on the island, and used this super-convenient mode of transport to our heart’s content.
We woke up every morning to views of the Merlion, which our older girls loved! If you don’t know what this mythical creature is, you can read all about it in the article on Expedia!
The girls also adored Adventure Cove, a water park. They wouldn’t stop talking about it, in fact! It was pretty inexpensive, so we could have gone again, but there was plenty more to see so we skipped a repeat. There was even loads for the littlies to enjoy, our 15-month old loved the awesome S.E.A. Aquarium, which is full of the most incredible marine life.
Sentosa Island, of course, also has a beach where you can while away some cheap family fun time for a low-budget day. It’s a whole 2-kilometres long, so there’s plenty of space to play.
Even if you decide to stay in Singapore for the entire trip, you shouldn’t miss a journey over to Sentosa Island, or vice versa. Because of the excellent public transport, it’s easy to go between the two. We really enjoyed staying in the different locations, though, because we feel like it was more convenient as a family to do this, and we got to really explore both areas.
