What Else Is There to Do in Sentosa?

If you're tired of the usual tourist-y activities in Singapore (i.e. night safari) and the usual shopping extravagazas that Filipinos are so fond of, consider spending your hard-earned money on the following:

Take a cable car from Vivo City to Sentosa instead of taking the MRT. You'll see the Singapore at a different angle - from the top. The harbor and the gazillion trees are absolutely stunning! This will cost you around $20 (SD) for a two-way trip. Not bad at all.

After walking under the sweltering heat (hotter than Manila I swear), cool down with a scoop or two of ice cream at Movenpick. A scoop costs $4.50. Stop converting to pesos and just enjoy the day!
Double scoops for me :-)

Try biking along the beach from Siloso to Palawan which is on the other end. Bel, Sittie and I rented bikes for $5 for ordinary bikes and $7 for mountain bikes. The rates are on a per hour basis. To our surprise the person manning the bike shop was a kababayan. Although he didn't give us a discount, he didn't charge additional for the extra time. We weren't expecting any discount whatsoever but he was being kind.

Purchase tickets for the Songs of the Sea show then at around 6:30 pm buy the tickets for the Luge to get a discount.

Then take the cable car back to Vivo City and enjoy Singapore's city lights.

It's always helpful to have some lemon oil when in crowded places. Thanks, Sittie.
