I have a few more stories about our family’s vacation in Singapore last month. As guests of Singapore Tourism Board, we were given the chance to experience the latest attractions suitable for small children and families. You can see the earlier Singapore Diaries here and here. I also listed our itinerary to help you plan your next Singapore trip.
The third was a particularly interesting day and the one the kids looked forward to the most. We visited the S.E.A. Aquarium and Universal Studios. Both were located at Resorts World Sentosa. We saw and did everything. Plus we even had a long fancy lunch at Putien. There is enough time.
Here are some photos taken by STB photographer Andrew Chua. There are other photos I took using my Samsung S4 and Galaxy Cam as well.
S.E.A. Aquarium is the world’s largest aquarium accredited by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™. The kids felt transported to the world of oceans. There were more than 800 species of marine animals. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
I am hoping one day my daughters take up scuba diving, the same way I did in the 90’s. The underwater world is beautiful. I loved the silence, the beauty, the connection with God and nature. Ok, I’m getting carried away again. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
Here, there are many shark species that you will see for the very first time together with endangered species such as the scalloped hammerhead shark, the powerful and aggressive silvertip shark, and the sandbar shark – one of the largest coastal sharks in the world.
Lily doesn’t like riding the carousel animals. So she and I usually pick the comfortable seats. One of my favourite worlds was Madagascar because of A Crate Adventure, an indoor boat ride featuring Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria. Don’t miss that one. All three kids loved it. They rode it three times. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
So here’s the famous Battlestar Galactica Human vs Cylon ride. It is the world’s tallest dueling coaster 42.5 metres (139 ft). One of the coasters is an inverted roller coaster track in blue, and the other half is a traditional seated roller coaster in red. It was under repair during our visit. I’d be too scared for this, haha. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
Soph really wanted to ride the Rapids Adventure at Jurassic Park but we were guaranteed to get soaked. And we didn’t bring extra clothes. So we had to skip it. If you wish to ride this, bring extra clothing. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
So instead we rode Dino-Soarin. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
We also met some of the dinosaurs at The Lost World. Photo by Andrew Chua STB
At the Kingdom Far Far Away, the girls’ favorite spot! We enjoyed Shrek’s 4-D Adventure, Donkey Live and the Magic Potion Spin.
