Singapore Trip -- Part 3

Next day started with a lazy morning, woke up late and enjoyed the cozy comforts of the hotel. We left around 11:30 am for the amazing Sentosa Island, once you reach the gates you have to make a 10 minutes journey on a cable car combined with amazing sight seeing on the way to the island.

Once we landed we went on another amazing Sky high journey on Carlsberg Skytower which gives you a panoramic view of the Singapore City some 131 meters above sea level.

Next visit was Images of Singapore, it's a journey to the very soul of Singapore – a place where cultural diversity, unity of values, adventure, perseverance and honor converge like nowhere else in the world. A must-visit for every visitor!

Then we went and watched a 4D movie called Pirates @ 4D Magix theater, now I have seen Chota Chetan but that was 3D and it didn't have your seats moving and water being sprinkled on your we had a gaala time with all the screaming and shouting and spiders, snakes, arrows and cannon balls trying to scratch your head.

So now it was time for an adventurous walk in the rain on the Dragon Trail through the lush green rain forest, best part was when I found a snake who luckily was non-poisonous(I am guessing this part) but somehow I couldn't click the picture ;-) I knew you guys won't believe's the proof...

We took a bus ride towards the Underwater World afterwards and well this is exactly what it was...a different world under the sea. I missed the diving with Sharks experience as it requires advance booking but I'll advice it to people who can do the dare. Nevertheless quite an experience!!!!

And here's the performer of the day.....

Time for sun and sand....there is a beautiful Siloso Beach just 5 mins walk from the underwater world......a serene walk!!!
Try to go there in evenings as there is live Jazz there...missed this one :-(

So our next attraction was Dolphin Lagoon, now this was something I always wanted to see since I was a kid and these beautiful and intelligent animals are definitely a treat to watch....awesome show...

And here's a small video of the show...

We moved along to the Merlion walk as we still had time before the last show of the day...

Boarded the bus again to reach the last show of the day..Songs of the Sea, a nightly extravaganza set in the sea. Songs of the Sea brings you a mesmerizing show with a live cast and dramatic effects pyrotechnics, water jets, brilliant lasers, special computer imaging, bursts of fire, captivating music and stunning flame bursts. But go there with an umbrella otherwise you'll get drenched like me due to all the water sprinklers...a must watch to study the marvels of human innovation!!!!

Do note that both shows on weekends and public holidays are especially crowded and are always sold out. Please come early on the day of show to purchase your tickets to avoid disappointment. Now here's a video to follow up :-)

We were as fresh as new after spending the entire day @ Sentosa as I guess you can never get tired when you are having fun, so we went for dinner at little India and completed our shopping @ the all night Mustafa...atleast my bags were full while coming back ;-)
