Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) has kicked off celebrations for the resort island’s Golden Jubilee, which will feature over 50 new experiences and attractions.
Themed 'Discovery Neverending', Sentosa's Golden Jubilee will celebrate the diverse facets of the island while showcasing the evolution of Sentosa to become today’s unique leisure destination
Guests can look forward to the launch of more than 50 commemorative leisure experiences, including SentoSights, a series of tours which will bring you on a journey through Sentosa's lesser known nature, heritage and marine life, among others.
Here's a look at the experiences and attractions that you can expect.
Sentosa has launched a new series of sustainability- and heritage-themed tours, SentoSights. Featuring more than 10 unique guided tours, SentoSights will showcase Sentosa’s hidden gems while helping guests gain insights into the importance of sustainability and conservation programmes.
Discover the island's nature, heritage and marine life as you take a trip to places such as Fort Siloso, Fort Serapong and Tanjong Rimau. You won't just be walking around either as SentoSights tours are multi-sensory experiences featuring fun elements such as a puzzle hunt and magic tricks, among others.
From 21 January, Singapore Citizens and Permanent Residents aged 60 and above will enjoy exclusive discounts and deals at participating business establishments in Sentosa on weekdays, in a collective effort by the Sentosa community to thank earlier generations for supporting the nascent growth of the resort island.
The range of Silvers Deals include the opportunity to enjoy Mount Faber Leisure Group’s Sentosa Island Bus Tour and a flight onboard the Singapore Cable Car (Mount Faber and Sentosa Line) for just $5 (U.P. $60). Seniors can also enjoy one-for-one admission into Madame Tussauds Singapore, and a 50% discount at Sentosa 4D AdventureLand on its ‘four-in-one’ combo, among various other deals.
Eligible seniors will just need to produce a valid photo identification or PAssion Silver Concession Card to enjoy the Silvers Deals.
Stories of Discovery
SDC will be crowd-sourcing guests’ memories of Sentosa through the ‘Stories of Discovery’ social media contest. To be launched on 7 February, the 10 most heart-warming photo entries from guests and their cherished story of discovery in Sentosa will be included in a special celebration video.
The winning entries will also stand to win a curated Sentosa experience package which includes a three-day-two-night staycation in Sentosa to be enjoyed with their loved ones.
