Singapore Isle - Travel Singapore. Experience the essence of today’s New Asia.
SENTOSA : Singapore's resort island getaway is a must-see for all visitors. The largest and best known of Singapore’s offshore islands is also one of the closest to the mainland. Sentosa is a multi-million dollar pleasure resort girdled by a monorail and offering a wide range of activities and attractions. These include the Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon, Images of Singapore, the recently upgraded Musical Fountain Show, the Maritime Museum; and the New Food Centre. Lovely gardens, beautiful beaches and a plethora of restaurants and eating places all contribute to the island’s popularity with tourists and locals alike with great excitement.
Cool off at Fantasy Island, Sentosa's spectacular new water theme park. Developed at a cost of over $50 million, Fantasy Island boasts 13 different fulfilled water rides and a mind boggling 31 different water slides as well as three activity pools
A spectacular, multi sensory experience awaits visitors at Sentosa's VolcanoLand. Budding explorers will discover aspects of the extinct Mayan civilization, fossils, archaeological digs and a "pit cage" to transport them to the very heart of the "volcano". Watch out for the half-hourly eruptions of "the world's most active volcano" as the power of ancient geological forces produce a 30-metre column of smoke that can even be seen from the World Trade Centre.
Pulau Ubin :
Pulau Ubin is a window into Singapore 30 years ago - thatched huts, backyard orchards, dirt tracks and interesting wildlife off the northeastern coast of Singapore, shaped like a boomerang and covered by low hills. This offshore island is being developed into a nature park complete with trails, shelters, camping sites, chalets and other basic amenities.
To enjoy the natural vegetation and the laidback kampong atmosphere, one should try leisure walking or cycling. The trails have been upgraded to facilitate trekking and basic amenities like toilets and shelters are available for the convenience of visitors.
St. John’s Island :
St. John’s Island, a former penal colony which has been transformed into a tranquil resort with abundant watersport activities and holiday bungalows, makes an ideal getaway. This large hilly island has been transformed into a tranquil getaway with swimming lagoons, beaches, picnic grounds, trekking routes and soccer fields. It is perfect for a weekend visit.
Kusu or 'Turtle Inland' :
Kusu or 'Turtle' Inland is best known for its legend of how a giant turtle turned itself into an island in order to save two shipwrecked sailors, a Malay and a Chinese. Lazarus and Sisters Islands are some of the other easily accessible tropical paradises known for snorkelling and diving. Simply catch a ferry from the Singapore Cruise Centre at the World Trade Centre or hire your own boat from Jardine Steps, Clifford Pier or the Changi Jetty.
