Sentosa

Post by bunty » Tue, 02 May 2006 11:16 am

Me and wife did our first outside singapore outing to Sentosa island, it is now nearly 3 months we are here.
found the place good, but thought the ticket prices for each of the attractions were a little on the higher side- any comments.,

even the packages they offer do not cover all the attractions.

I feel they should charge like disneyworld. one reasonable price for all attractions to be purchased at arrival or at any of the attractions.

the beaches were very good. now i know why sing expats members have fun at sentosa. maybe i will join some time...

We have heard so much about snow city. any feedback please- good or bad?

Hey bunty, had a good weekend. great.

Sentosa is always catered for tourist and much costly :( . Snow world @Singa'city is okie if you are visiting there newly, but sense Genting snow city is comparably good too.

No! i suggest u give that place a miss. unless u r into trodding along in ice-cream sans the chocolate and toppings.

for the "cold effect", i suggest u head for eski bar at raffles. at least u can get a beer for that.

My daughter went to Snow city on Monday. She's the first one in the family to go there. She said she had a good time but was surprised at how small the place is. She was expecting it to be much bigger. I would say if you have kids then they might enjoy it.

As for Sentosa, I quite like it, until it is time to go home and then it would be easier to escape from Alcatraz. I'm assuming it will get better when they open that new rail link or whatever they are building, but at present it is fafftastic.

Attractions - we do one each time, too expensive otherwise.

sentosa used to be much more expensive. Last few years then they dropped the entrance fee to only $2 per head. yep, they are doing a MRT linked to Sentosa itself. RAilway train. :wink:

Sentosa used to have much more entertainment inside, i do not know why it's dropping. but do look out for new CASINO! muhahaha.

I'm a member of SEntosa for some years.

FYI, they off their entire island lights at 12mn. hehe. saving electricity i guess.. but think the CASINO is built, they would not pratise this anymore.

Snowcity in sg is relatively alot smaller than the one in GEnting - Snowworld. After the one at Genting renovated, think it's much better now. been there twice :P

Holland Village

Post by bunty » Mon, 08 May 2006 11:47 am

We went to Holland Village yesterday. This is the one near holland village shooping center.

However it was just a small strip of restaurants/eateries. Is that it in holland village or did we miss anything more?.

That's it, just a local shopping place. What exactly are you looking for?

from what i had a read, it was suppoosed to be a happening joint with lots of eateries . the eating joints dint seem any different from the ones in the malls or even in boat quay/clarke quay.

yes saw a lot of european crowd, which is hardly seen anywhere else....

There are lots of restaurants on the main road as well as many others hidden away - the crowd is mainly Caucasian, I wouldn't say European.

Again, bunty, maybe people here could make suggestions if you would explain what you are looking for.
