Singapore Day 3 (14.07.2012): What a fun day on Sentosa Island even in the rain! I think we are very lucky that this is the first day that we have ever really been affected by the rain (even though we have travelled in monsoon season). It rained all day!
We left the sightseeing behind us and headed to Sentosa at 9am taking the MRT (underground) then a monorail to the park. Sentosa is a wonderful playground - Lots of lovely beaches and many things to do. We purchased a "play pass" which allowed us to do 16 activities. One of the activities was a museum (a fun one) about the history of Singapore so we did do something cultural today! Adam loved the museum, making the most of the photo opportunities (see the photos).
Among today's activities were Segway riding through a forest, a go on a luge (a bobsleigh go-kart type thing that goes down a track), sky riding and body boarding on a wave rider, log ride, 4D cinema, shooting horse desperado ride + more. So much fun! I have wanted to have a go on a Segway for a while, it is not as easy as it looks! I fell off the body board almost straightaway but Adam looked like a pro! Adam liked the luge best though - he won of course.
We also checked out the tiger sky tower and the merlion (part lion part fish) which would have offered amazing views over Singapore if it wasn't for the rain! We saw the potential anyhow! In the evening we grabbed a beer and went to the 'songs of the sea' show which is set on a fishing village but is basically a laser and fountain show. Next stop: Sentosa Casino! I felt like I was in Vegas again. The Casino has a great feel to it. I had a few wins and we managed to break even in the end.
Still with the casino bug we left Sentosa and headed on the MRT to Marina Bay arriving just in time for the 11pm fountain show. The show is spectacular and certainly gives the Bellagio fountains a run for their money. After the show it was straight to the Casino. We did have a few wins but ended up gambling it all away along with a bit more. The drinks were free so I guess we broke even really! We had a few hours fun anyhow! Stumbled in at 2:30am - so tired! We will miss a night's sleep tomorrow when we fly to Oz. Zombieland here we come!
Our flight tomorrow does not leave until 22:00 so we have the whole day in Singapore. We will do some proper sightseeing tomorrow to make up for our westernised play time. No regrets!
Oh I meant to add to yesterday we saw the F1 track, pit stops etc.. Adam was well pleased.
