Singapore Trip (Day 6) : Having Fun at Sentosa Island

September 16th, 2010 No comments

Today i spent my whole day at Sentosa Island. Actually, i already spent one day at Universal Studio Singapore that also in the Sentosa Island several days ago. But this time i spent my time to play outside the Universal Studio. Before Universal Studio was built, Sentosa Island was the main tourist destination in Singapore. When i visited Singapore at 2003, i spent a lot of time in hanging around at this place. Most of the attractions were free to visit that time. But now, you seems must pay for each places you want to enter. There are a lot of rides you can play in this island. But when compared to Universal Studio Singapore, you will feel that the rides outside the USS is just ordinary rides. The rides attractions here is not as good as Universal Studio have. However, although most of the rides is not attractive, there some of attractions worth to visit. The most popular attraction you can’t miss in this place is the Song of The Sea. This is the most unique beautiful water fountain show in the Asia (err…. maybe in the World).  If you visit Singapore, you definitely may not miss this show. I even can said that you haven’t go to Singapore if you haven’t watch Song of The Sea.

On the second day of my trip, i spent my whole day at Universal Studio Singapore (USS Singapore). This international theme park just officialy opened on April 2010. So it’s not until half year since the opening. We were so excited can come to this theme park. Because it is the second Universal Studios to open in Asia, after Japan. This park right now is one of the must visited destination in South Asia during vacation. Universal Studio Singapore occupied about 20 hectares (almost half of 49 hectares) from the Resorts Worlds Sentosa area. Inside the park there are 24 attractions and 7 thematic place, which takes blockbuster movie theme on each place. There are many famous movie (Jurrasic Park, Shrek, Madagascar, The Mummy) and famous characters in the park. This park is located on Resort World Sentosa on Sentosa Island.

Travel to Singapore (Day 1) : National Museum of Singapore

September 9th, 2010 No comments

Yesterday was the first day of my Singapore Tour. This one is the second trip to Singapore for me. Just like my last trip, i went to Singapore through Batam. Not like several years ago where the airplane ticket and fiscal fee was quite expensive, right now it should be more convenient and cheaper if you go from Surabaya to Singapore directly by airplane. But unfortunately, that time i ran out of airplane tickets. Because that time i suddenly was invited by my friends who want to travel to singapore for the first time, so there was no enough preparation in this trip. Airplane from Surabaya to Batam should departed at 9 o’clock, but there was a delay on the flight. We finally departed from Juanda International Airport, Surabaya arround 10 o’clock.

Travel to Singapore via Batam

We finally arrived at Batam Hang Nadim Airport at 12 o’clock. If you are backpacker who like to minimize the cost, then buy Batam-Singapore Ferry Ticket at the airport. Buying ferry ticket at Airport usually about SGD $2 cheaper than buying at ferry terminal. From Airport you can go to Batam Center (The nearest ferry terminal from Airport) by taxi. The cost is about Rp. 70.000 (SGD $ 9.62). It just need 15 minutes from Batam Hang Nadim Airport to Batam Center.
