The fort is extensive, make sure you approach it from the beach and take a right at the small roundabout just before the large hotel. You will see a tiled wall in front of you, head towards that and go up in the free lift...More

We went to Sentosa Island just to explore this Fort and it was definitely worth it. Be aware that there is actually much to see, with indoor exhibits providing some air conditioned relief from the brutal heat and humidity. If you are interested in military...More

Be sure to take the lift up to the Fort. You can imagine what it must have been like there during the 2nd world war. The fort consists of many buildings which detail the Japanese occupation and surrender. If you are a history buff it...More

To start with a justifiable rant about Sentosa oil general. I hadn’t been to Sentosa since the 1980’s and would never pay to enter the island, it is a shameful stain on Singapore’s reputation, a place of animal exploitation and cruelty, no one who claims...More

It could be better if there was a tour guide or self directed tour using headphone . Otherwise a nice place to spend 30-45 mins away from the madness of Singapore

Here's the cheeky option - grab the free shuttle bus from Vivo City for Shangri-La Sentossa resort hotel (goes every 20 mins) - you get onto the Island for free and Fort Siloso is at the entrance to the hotel

What does arvo mean? >>Suggestions for dinner on Sentosa, are there any Hawker market style places? << Malaysian Food Street. It is very busy during mealtimes though so try to go before or after. Alternatively, take the monorail to Vivocity where there are 2 food courts (Kopitiam and Food Republic) and Seam Im Food Centre (hawker centre) is across the road.

Day 2 ) I think 4pm is a more realistic finshingbtime at the zoo. Assume you will be too tired to anything requiring walking afterwards. Day 4) iFly and Dolphin Island require brebooking, possiblly well in advance. Allow time to account for training and variable finish times and travel between the two places. Day 5) Avoid USS on a Sunday, the express pass won't save you - only on certain raises and only single use per ride (we make sure we on the Transformers and Mummy rides at least 3...More
