After exploring Palawan Beach, we took our quick lunch in Koufu, which is open 9AM-9PM. Food here are a bit pricey compared to mainland prices.
So we had pork (parang sweet and sour) and hainanese chicken. My sister and I didn’t like what we had. Our food was a bit bland. Si hubz, he said the food was okay daw. Well, knowing hubz, kahit ano okay naman sa kanya, hahaha. Buti na lang I ordered, fried dumplings. Kahit papano, nagkalasa yung lunch namin. Each meal by the way cost S$5.
For dessert we also had ice kachang. It is traditionally served in a shallow bowl and shaped up to appear like a mountain on a small bowl. The syrups not only add colors but also flavor to this simple and yet exquisite ice dessert. I enjoyed it. Ang init kasi that time sa Sentosa. We also had water chestnut that taste like iced water.
If you will be in this part of Sentosa, I suggest you to eat somewhere else na lang. :(
We took the shuttle bus to Imbiah lookout where the Merlion is located.
The Sentosa shuttle bus is free when you are already inside Sentosa which will go around the island and to various attractions
Upon arriving at Imbiah lookout, I initially wanted to try the Luge but the waiting line is so long so we decided to try Tiger Sky tower.
Tiger Sky Tower standing 110-meters tall, the tallest observation tower in Singapore. The ride takes you 131 meters above sea level, giving you a wonderful panoramic views of Sentosa , Singapore and Southern Island.
From the top of the Sky Tower, you can see all the way to Malaysia and Indonesia
That’s us at the top of Sentosa Tiger Sky Tower. Happy looking. If it was my first time malamang kinakabahan na ko but since I already tried something like this in Hongkong, all smile na.
During the 10 minute ride, there is a cabin commentary describing the history of Sentosa and its surroundings as well as pointing out various places of interest visible from the cabin.
Ticket cost S$15 for adults/$12 for kids and is open 9AM – 9PM daily.
After the Tiger Sky tower ride, we were led by my sister to this famous statue. The Merlion. There are 5 Merlion statues recognized by the Singapore Tourism Board, including the one standing in Sentosa Island.
The Merlion, as said, he stand 37 metre and and rise 60 metre above sea level.
The Sentosa Merlion is the 40th tallest statue in the world.
If you want closer Merlion encounter, it will cost S$8 for adults and S$5 for kids. You can take the lift to go to the 9th floor and see the island through the Merlion’s Mouth Gallery Viewing Deck or to the 12th floor for an even better view.
We weren’t able to explore the Merlion Park because I am so excited to see Universal Stuido. It was pass 2pm already.
We hurriedly took the Sentosa express and alighted Waterfront Station.
When I saw the arrow going to Universal, I was so giddy to take big steps to get there
