The S.E.A. Aquarium, where over 1,000 species of marine lives dwell, is a great place to start if you were ever curious about the world under the waters.

Location: Sentosa Island
Operating hours: Varies
Sentosa does not disappoint when it comes to having fun, after all, it’s not known as The State of Fun for nothing. With something catering to the different interests of everyone, from the young to the young at heart, it is the ideal destination for an outing and many may have missed visiting the island during the Circuit Breaker period.
You can now maneuver the curves like an F1 racer at Skyline Luge, escape into Virtual Reality for a different kind of action at HeadRock VR, soar through the air on a 450m long zip line, and more! While the usual safety measures apply here as well, you might want to check the respective page of the attraction or place you’re visiting before your actual trip.
