Sentosa Island is a small island immedately south of Singapore proper. It's a small
Disney-land like park with lots of exhibits, restaurants, and fun things to do. There is a
cable car you can take to the island (which I did: great view and a lot of fun!).
Apparently, no native Singaporeans will take the cable car because several years back it
actually collapsed! It has been rebuilt since then, of course. I think this is probably
something they say to scare tourists. :-)
By the way, one of the things I did NOT do while I was there was try
out the beaches. Sentosa has some great beaches, where you can just stretch out, relax,
and work on your tan. Topless bathing is prohibited (except for men) :-).
Sea dragons are a type of seahorse, one of the exhibits at the Underwater World in
Singapore. It is only one building, but contains many different examples of underwater
This is a shot I got of a Manta ray passing directly over me. There is a tunnel under
the main aquarium that allows you to be completely surrounded by fish!
A whole field of nothing but different varieties of Orchids!
This is the fort where the British attempted to fight off invading Japanese during
World War II. Singapore was a British colony at the time. There is a museum of Singapore
history on Sentosa, as well.
