    Singapore

    It is not "the end of the world", this show combining music, water jets and laser lights, but after a day strolling in the island to visit its several attractions, it is a relaxing end of the day, sitting for half an hour and watching this free event, before returning to mainland.

    Singapore-My most memorable trip

    by Sanaaa Written Sep 1, 2012

    Hello! I visited Singapore myself some while back so I can help answer some of your questions
    1. 5 to 6 days are enough to see this small but enchanting island. My trip was of a month but I felt even this was not ample time as I fell in love with the place, the cleanliness, friendly people, pretty places, bright lights, easy accessibility to every nook and cranny, the malls, food, everything! However since it is a tiny country and it is very easy to get from one place to another, 5-6 days are enough. You should definitely visit Sentosa and see its beautiful beaches, Universal Studios, a laser show which they show there which is amazing; When I went, they were showing 'Songs of the Sea' and it was a delight to watch. Youtube it and be sure to look out for it. Besides Sentosa, visit Clarke Quay, take the river cruise there and dine in one of their restaurants, choosing your food from a wide array of fresh sea food or other items. Bungee Jump if you're interested or just sit on the steps and get lost in the bright lights and wonderful ambiance of the place. Take a view of Singapore from the flyer, go to see the Merlion at Marina Bay Sands, visit China Town, my favorite mall Plaza Singapura, buy the park hopper ticket for getting entry in to all three main attractions which are the Zoo, Jurong Bird Park and Night Safari and shop your heart out at Orchard Road. You will definitely want to visit this magical island again in life.

    I got my Malaysian visa from Mustafa Travels and visited Malaysia as well. Singapore borders with the Malaysian state of Johar Baru and you can go there on a bus and later go to KL or anywhere else that you want. It is possible to do that but having more time to see these places is always a good idea.

    I think you should book for yourself as booking through a travel company will be costly and its not really hard to do it yourself. As for hotels, I cant say as I stayed at my sister's place there. And like I said before, yes! You can explore Singapore all on you own. Now just go and have a great trip. I always tell my friends that I left behind a part of my heart in Singapore and I have to go back to get it. Hopefully that'l be the case with you too and you wouldn't want to leave..!!

    When on Sentosa Island make sure not to miss the Songs of the Sea. It`s a pyrotechnic show on the beach with a live cast show and great show for the whole family. With singing and dancing and a nice story and to end the show you treated with a spectacular fireworks display.

    Tickets to the show is 10$ Singapore and premium seats at 15$ Singapore. There was 2 shows ,the 7:40pm show was fully booked and we got tickets for the next show that evening at 8:40pm.

    Sing at the Songs of the Sea

    Lady of the Sea

    Songs of the Sea was the highlight of our Sentosa experience. There were only two shows per day (you will know why when you get there) - One at 7:40pm and the other at 8:40pm.

    We arrived by bus just as the first show is about to end. So then, we were able to get a good seat for the second show. If you happen to chance upon someone asking you for a quick survey regarding your Sentosa experience, don’t hesitate. Be nice and respond honestly as you can. Besides, you don’t have to tick any mark on the paper at all. The one who asks will gladly do it for you. In the end, you will get a free Sentosa bag. My dad received just that after he willingly answered some honest, simple questions about our Sentosa experience earlier that day.

    The Songs of the Sea was amazing. It was the best show I have ever seen. It was magical. I couldn’t for any moment happen to imagine how they ever did the synchronization of the lights and the water, and the fireworks all at the same time. Everything happened pretty smoothly fast. The characters of the story were great. There were a lot of singing and ooohs and aaaahs.

    Don't miss:
    *To sing for Princess Ami.

    Hey, you should know that:
    *You'll end up singing: He did it! Me did it! We did it! Did what? But Oscar will say: You did it.

    Some tips:
    *You might want to buy an Oscar plush toy. We hurried after the show to catch our group so we weren’t able to stop by among the people who were selling these cute toys near the exits. There were around 10,000 people on that day on the island itself and so, we just kept on rushing back to our bus.

    Just a short walk on Sentosa Island from Universal Studio's, is the "Lake of Dream's," a nice cool area for on a hot day.
    The Lake of Dreams is a beautiful, sculpture fountain created by Emmy award-winning designer, Jeremy Railton. The sculpture is of vine leaves, weaving their way around the water and fountain's it looks very attractive.

    We didn't see it at night, but as the sun goes down then a multimedia show with lasers, water cannons and flaming dragons begins at 9.30pm every evening. There is no admission charge or designated seating, so come early to get a good spot. The show lasts approximately 10 minutes

    Songs Of the Sea, Sentosa, Singapore

    It is the most amazing show I have ever seen in my life. It’s a show where lights, sound, fireworks, lasers, image projection, water fountains/jets and performing artist are in synch with each other. Open air theatre on the beach gives it an awesome ambience in the evening. Extraordinary effects pour life into characters. The beauty with which they project images in air is unbelievable. As the show progresses, effects become more and more interesting. Effects are so realistic that I was unable to believe my eyes. For example, volcano eruption on the beach actually made me feel, yes, its erupting in front of me just 10 feets away. They had used water jets, lights and sound to create this effect. There are plenty of such pyrotechnic effects.

    It’s mesmerizing. It was the best thing that I saw during my visit to Singapore. Hats off to the person who actually thought of such a brilliant concept in entertainment and implemented it. It’s a must see/experience if you are visiting Singapore. It is something you can never forget. I am actually falling short of words to describe it. You got to see it to believe it

    Show timings: 2 shows daily at 7.40 p.m. and 8.40 p.m.
    Show Duration : 25 minutes
    Tickets costs: 10SGD
    Seating capacity: 2500 people.

    I was unable to get good photographs with my camera as it was night and at a distance. For pics you can check other fellow VTers or google it.

    This island has lots to offer. but what I really enjoyed the most is the songs of the sea play. It is a play using light and pyro display. you will be amazed of the misting of water and reflection of the lights come together in the sky. It will show clear image like a projector. pray that it won't rain because the shows gets cancelled because it is viewed on a open area.

    I was lucky to attend one of these shows. It was amazing. So is Singapore. I stay at the Holiday Inn, Atrium. I also visited the exhibit on Buddhism (Nalanda Trail) at The Asian Civilizations Museum and loved it. Singapore is my second favourite place to be.

    A Must-Visit attraction on Sentosa. Replacing the old Musical Fountain and Kiki the monkey is the World’s first water show set in the sea, Songs of the Sea and Oscar the lion fish. The new show is even better than Musical Fountain. A combination of technology, imaging and live cast. It is so much more interactive with the live cast so engaging in close proximity, makes me feel like I’m in the show. The kelong (Malay village) setting resembles original Asian fishing village huts. The dramatic effects, water jets, pyrotechnics, lasers, fire and music makes the whole show mesmerizing. A visual feast that is not to be missed!

    Water Fountain Show

    by kencat Written Sep 30, 2007
    before the show begins.Look at the back.

    It's probably best to be seated at the center aisle at the back as you wouldn't have to worry about the water splashing you or the fireworks heating up the air surrounding you (when in front)... and you have the full view of the fountain.. It's best to see it as a whole than focus on particular parts only.

    Latest Fiery Water--Musical Fountain

    This is Sentosa's newest addition. It is better than the previous show but it is no longer free. You have to pay $6 to catch a glimpse of it. Ouch! That hurts. However, it is worthwhile. With water jets, songs and dance, fire balls and fireworks display, it is difficult to refuse a night on the wooden benches in the Palawan Beach. On weekends and public holidays, you have to go to the ticketing booth early in order to get a ticket as it is always full house. Take a bus, car, tram or rail to the Beach Station and the ticketing booth is clearly visible from there.

    Could be so much better

    Merlion at Sentosa

    Update 2007, below is my original tip. Recently they have done a lot of renovation to Sentosa. Probably the greatest addition is the new monorail that connects vivo city(mainland singapore) to the island. In a few years, Sentosa will have a universal studios and casino, which the monorail will stop at. we use the monorail to take us to palawan or siloso beach. The monorail makes the trip much more convenient and fast. There are lots of new restaurants and bars on the island. Cafe del mar is probably the most hip at the moment. You can get a beach cabana or lounge chair for the day. The other attractions are still kind of lame, but it's nice to hang out by the sand and escape the city. Volleyball is very popular here.

    I have mixed feelings about Sentosa. It's billed as an island of attractions, beaches, and fun. Unfortunately, Singapore does not deliver on this.

    For kids-i am sure the place is great. For adults, it's a different story. The place is so overpriced and the attractions are only so so. I know many Singaporeans, who have either never been here, not been in years or never want to go back. For locals, the beach is nicer than the one on east coast park. A lot of people play volleyball there.

    There are a bunch of attractions, underwater world, pink dolphins, images of singapore (quite good), fort siloso(good), lame jungle treks with tacky and fake dinosaur bones. They have a magical fountain at night. The big attraction is the very large merlion. You can go inside-into the mouth and on top it's head. From the head you have a good view of Singapore and on a clear day -Indonesia.

    There is a lot of talk of redeveloping this area, but unfortuantely not swift action. This is such a shame-since this could become a first rate amusement park.

    There are some nice hotels here-Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa and the Beaufort hotel and spa.

    Sentosa Island - Songs of the Sea

    by matjung Written Jun 24, 2007
    Merlion Walk
    4 more images

    My favourite attraction on Sentosa Island was songs of the sea.
    2nd next was to play along the Merlion Walk.

    To fully explore the island dedicate a full day for it.
    Most facilities start to open at 9am.

    The best way to explore the island is on foot, by cycle or by bus.
    The buses are provided free of charge.

    If visiting Imbiah, then stay away from the Sky Tower and 4D cinema.
    Instead go for the Merlion and drink a cup of tea at the Herbs & Spices garden.

    If you want adventure, opt for the Sentosa Luge & Skyride.
    The Ludge is a 650 meter long go cart track down the hill to the beach.
    And the skyride (chair lift) brings you back to the top.

    Don't forget to have a look into the underwater world - one of the best I have seen so far.
