Today, Sentosa is an oasis of fun and games in hectic Singapore. There’s never a shortage of entertainment with numerous accommodation options and attractions for an exciting staycation.

Beyond that, there are other attractions for all members of the family. For the thrill-seekers, this includes the iFly Singapore, the world’s largest themed wind tunnel for indoor skydiving, and Mega Adventure Park, Southeast Asia’s steepest flying fox. For those who want to unwind and catch up on a book can visit any of the three tranquil beaches to soak in the sunshine. For nature-lovers, the Animal and Bird Encounters shows at the Palawan Amphitheatre or the interactive Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom at the Imbiah Lookout beckons.
Those who prefer to learn more about Singapore can visit Madame Tussauds Singapore to rub shoulders with actors portraying everyday Singaporeans in the pioneering generation. Built in the 19th century, Fort Siloso also offers a glimpse into World War II and the Japanese Occupation, where you can explore trails in the fort and transport yourself back in time to relive momentous events in Singapore’s history through an immersive show.
To cap off a beautiful day at Sentosa, you can enjoy the multi-sensory show, Wings of Time, displaying water, laser and fire effects set against the backdrop of the open sea while having your dinner.
