Sentosa Island


Sentosa Island

The Merlion Pulau Sentosa

Hi, I really want to share about traveling on Sentosa Island, Singapore. Anyone know where it is located? Previously you would have known that Singapore is a country consisting of the mainland (mainland) which has the administrative name Ujong Island and several other islands. One of the largest islands after Ujong Island is Sentosa Island. Sentosa Island is also the most famous and most visited island in Singapore, with total annual visits reaching 20 million people. So much!

So,  Sentosa Island became a favorite tourist destination in Singapore because there are a lot of facilities and entertainment there, one of which them is Universal Studios. In addition, there are still so many interesting attractions and activities that you can find in Sentosa Island. Then, the story has a story, Sentosa Island had experienced several name changes, such as Pulau Panjang and Blakang Mati. The island was named Sentosa in 1972, which can also be said to be the beginning year of the construction of Sentosa Island. For those of you who want to come here from the mainland (mainland), there are several ways you can choose, namely by taking the Sentosa Express, riding the Cable Car, or walking through the Sentosa Boardwalk. During your stay on the resort island, you also don’t need to worry about the difficulty of moving from one point to another because there are also several transportation options that can be used, namely Sentosa Express, Sentosa Bus, and Beach Tram. And even more fun, all for free. That means, you can go around Sentosa Island without spending a penny.

But, you guys definitely want some tips on how to get to Sentosa Island, which is cheap and easy, I took the MRT starting from Eunos Station back to Vivo City, armed with MRT maps that were already worn out hahaha … I also took the MRT at a cost of 2.2 SGD (IDR 24,000). When I arrived at Vivo City, I began to look for instructions on the bus to get to Sentosa Resort. Notes for all of you, the starting transportation to cross to Sentosa Island is from a large mall known as Vivo City. Which is located next to the Harbourfront MRT train station or Ferry Boat Terminal on Harbourfront. So, make sure wherever you come from in the city of Singapore, go to VivoCity Mall first then choose the mode of transportation you want to get to Sentosa Island. Now to start heading to Sentosa Island, you need to pay a fee of 2 SGD (Rp. 21,500).

universal studio

When I arrived at Sentosa Island, what I imagined was being able to enter Universal Studios. Because, Universal Studios has become the most favorite tourist place here. But unfortunately the tickets are quite expensive, which is 76 SGD (IDR 813,000) for adults and SGD 56 (IDR 599,000) for children. As a result, I didn’t go to Universal Studios but only took pictures with the iconic Universal Studios ball. FYI, in Universal Studio there are various rides, shows and interesting attractions that you can enjoy here. Of course this can be an option for family visits. Universal Studios is divided into 7 zones with different themes: Hollywood, New York, Sci-Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Lost World, Far Far Away, and Madagascar. Within the area, there are several halal food choices. For the place of prayer, you can find around the Battlestar Galactica area, precisely after passing through the entrance of the Human Coaster. And, Universal Studios is open every day from 10:00 to 18:00. If the weather conditions are bad, there are chances that some rides will be closed. Universal Studios is located at 8 Sentosa Gateway,


There are expensive tours and there are also cheap tours that you can enjoy here. And finally, I decided to go to Palawan Beach. Indeed, there are several beaches on Sentosa Island, namely Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and Tanjong Beach. You can see the other side of Singapore by visiting the beaches. But, don’t expect the beaches to be as beautiful as the beaches in Indonesia. Incidentally the beach we visited was Palawan Beach, whose sea borders Batam Island. For Singaporeans, these beaches are a place to spend time with family. So, on holidays the beach will likely be very crowded. When I go to Palawan Beach, the beach tends to be quiet because we don’t go there during the holiday season. How lucky! Traveling to Singapore doesn’t really need to be expensive.
