Singapore Sentosa Island Waterpark

Sentosa Island

Resort World

The only one in all of Asia, Universal Studios Singapore does not disappoint with over 24 attractions and rides, most of them not available here in the States. We had the best local ubiquitous dish, Hainanese chicken rice, here in a food court serving just a few other local dishes, next to Jurassic Park. There is also Adventure Cove Waterpark (super clean and organized like the rest of country), S.E.A. Aquarium, The Maritime Experiential Museum, Dolphin Island, ESPA spa and much more.

Not to be missed is the Headrock VR world (straight from Korea where the experiences are beyond just wearing the head gear) for some seriously creative digital pleasure. We rode on a dog sled through a blizzard, a raft through the jungle, and jumped through skyscrapers and over lava erupting volcanoes.

We stumbled upon the Malaysian Street Food Court on our way out for more delicious food where each stall prepares and specializes in one dish. We decided on the Char Koay Teow - which became our all time favorite noodles in a country with so may yummy noodles dishes!

For another proper snack, check out Slappy Cakes. Our love for buttermilk pancakes went up a notch getting to make our own table side with all our favorite toppings to choose from. Only in Singapore can you hop in a cab and within 15-20 minutes, get dropped off at the entrance to all of the above, so easily accessible and fun for both children and adults!
