Took the MRT to Harbourfront, then took the Sentosa Express (costs $3 for a return).
Sentosa is described as a resort, a getaway, "paradise" in reality it is none of these things. As you ascending towards the island the first thing you notice is this huge construction site- they're building a resort comparable to universal studios, apparently. The Sentosa express runs straight down the middle of the island, so you have to walk to the further beaches or get a tram/ bus to the attractions. We first took a look at the beaches, these beaches are man-made, and you can tell, everything seems fake, from the palm beach planted on the beach to the bushes that play all manner of Caribbean sounds. The sea around Singapore isn't that nice, almost as bad as Blackpool. To be honest there are far nicer beaches in England (Cornwall and Abersoch, come to mind!) The first attraction we tested was the Underwater World, this is rather impressive, you can touch stingrays, starfish and other kind of fish. There's a really cool tunnel which is underwater, the fish swim around you. It was $19.90 for entry, and this also included entry to Dolphin Lagoon. Dolphin Lagoon houses a number of pink dolphins, who have "swimming pools" to swim in. This was a let down, the tricks are fairly simple and the trainers are really cheesy and completly over the top. It is possible to swim with the dolphins for $150 or swim with sharks for $120. The next place we visited was the Butterfly and Bird Park plus museum, it was rather small, you can get close to the birds and there's a really nice variety of butterflies. It cost $10 to get in.
We also took the Dragon trail walk, it's walking through the remaining rainforest that they have preserved on Sentosa. You can also walk to the furthest point of South-Eastern Aisa, which also seems fake with the palm trees. From here you can see to Indonesia.
To finish the day, me and Nikki sat on the beach drinking cocktails in the rain.
