Day 2 - Singapore Diaries | TSD in Singapore | TSD Travels

Hey everyone!

I am back with the second post from my Singapore diaries, which I know I have been posting very slowly - but I have been really occupied with few things lately which don't leave me with any time to write.

But, I do try to update my social media pages daily, so if you want to follow my fashion and lifestyle diaries - don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat.

Singapore Cable Car
Coming back to this post, the agenda on our second day in Singapore was to explore Sentosa Island and its various attractions.
Breakfast at Holiday Inn Atrium
After a hearty breakfast at Holiday Inn Atrium, we headed to the Sentosa Island which is a popular island resort in Singapore which was located quite close to our hotel. The island is accessible by a monorail, Sentosa Boardwalk and a cable car. If you want to have a memorable experience, you should try to access the island through the cable car which originates from Mount Faber and passes through HarbourFront en route to its final destination at Imbiah Lookout.

The route offers a spectacular view of the island, passing over a highway, HarbourFront cruise bay and onto Sentosa, the State of Fun.

I had chosen a very convenient package from Tripxoxo to explore the Sentosa Island - that included a cable car return ticket and tickets for various attractions at the island. Infact, you can choose from many Sentosa Island packages available at Tripxoxo to suit your budget and travel requirements - that will make sure you don't have to waste time buying the tickets individually at the island.

View from the Tiger Sky Tower

Upon reaching the island, the first attraction I explored was the Tiger Sky Tower - which is an observatory tower, rotating up to 131 metres above sea level, offering360-degree panoramic views across Singapore's cityscape as well as neighbouring countries!


After having a breathtaking view of Singapore's various attractions from the Tiger Sky Tower, I moved to explore the Images of Singapore LIVE show - a unique, fun and interactive theatrical show, that takes you on a journey to uncover the nation's extraordinary story.



The LIVE show that takes you through the rich history of Singapore in a very attractive way ends with a boat ride that celebrates everything unique about the Singapore culture. After the show, one enters the Madame Tussauds museum which ofcourse, was one of the most thrilling experiences of my Sentosa Island visit.

It hosts wax statues of various sports, politics, music as well as film personalities - from Singapore, Asia and beyond.

I loved to get myself clicked with Modiji, Shahrukh, Taylor Swift and many other statues, but the most funny statues were of Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit and Angelina Jolie - which were drastically different from what these celebs actually look in-person.

Post visiting Madame Tussauds, I grabbed a quick cup of coffee at the Starbucks situated at the Sentosa Island - which I was surprised to know that priced quite reasonably and had a good offering of food as well.



Later, I explored the Sentosa Merlion - a legendary symbol of Singapore which is a mythical creature with a lion's head and a fish's body - as a guardian of prosperity which personifies Singapore's history as an important seaport.
It offers two views - one from the mouth of the Merlion and other from the crown - at 60 metres above sea level. There is also a Wishing bell located at the mouth of the Merlion - which is popularly known to make your wishes come true - well I don't know if the wishes do actually come true - but it was a beautiful experience indeed seeing the beauty of Singapore from this landmark.




The last part of the day was exploring the famous SEA Aquarium - home to more than 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species, across into 49 different habitats, each one as fascinating as the next.
The aquarium is huge - unlike any I have seen before and is so much fun to explore.

After a day full of exploring the Sentosa Island ( which I still haven't completely explored, and I think I would need to travel to Singapore again to check out various other parts of Sentosa) - I did a little shopping at Victoria's Secret and other stores, especially Candylicious that I will show in the haul post soon.

Stay tuned for the remaining posts from the Singapore diaries that will be up shortly!
Love
