I visited Singapore for the first time in three and a half years. Actually, I used to live in Singapore for one and a half year to attend a business school. A reunion was held in Singapore, so that’s why I came back there. This times, I spent about a week going around Singapore to take as many photos as possible. In this article, I will write about S.E.A. Aquarium etc. in Sentosa Island as part of Day 7.

It was the 7th day of my Singapore trip for 8 days and 7 nights. Since the final day was mainly spent for the flight from Singapore to Tokyo, it was practically the last day for me to stay in Singapore.
Kaya Toast for breakfast at Killiney Cafe
To begin with, I visited Killiney Cafe to have a breakfast.
I ordered a Kaya Toast set.
In the end, I had Kaya Toast for breakfast three times in my Singapore trip (Ya Kun Kaya Toast on the 2nd day and TOAST BOX on the 6th day). Each coffee shop had its original taste, but if I needed to pick up one, I would recommend Ya Kun Kaya Toast.
Going to Sentosa Island
On the 7th day in the morning and afternoon, I went to Sentosa Island, which was located 600m south from Singapore’s mainland.
Sentosa Island has been developed as part of the Singapore government’s tourism policy. In particular, Resort World Sentosa (RWS) was opened as a leisure complex in the north of Sentosa Island in 2010. The facilities include Universal Studios Singapore, hotels, casino and aquarium.
In the morning, I visited S.E.A. Aquarium in the Resort World Sentosa.
S.E.A. Aquarium, which was opened in 2012, is one of the largest aquarium in the world. There are more than 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species in the S.E.A. Aquarium.
The Maritime Experiential Museum is located on the same site.
The museum exhibits trades in Asia, the Middle East and Europe in 8 and 9th century.
Here are some photos taken in the S.E.A. Aquarium. First, “Shipwreck Habitat” area.
“Shark Seas” where visitors are able watch several kinds of shark, including Hammerhead Shark.
Clownfish, which has become popular due to “Finding Nemo”.
A huge panel with 36m wide by 8.3m tall at “Open Ocean” area.
Jellyfish in the “Ocean Journey” area.
I just happened to see feeding.
Other snap photos.
The final photo was takes at Shark Seas again to see shark above my head.
Malaysian Food Street
I had a lunch at Malaysian Food Street. As the name suggests, there were lots of Malaysian local food here.
I chose “Penang Lim Brothers”.
I ordered “Char kway teow”, a signature menu for the stall.
After lunch, I continued to walk around Sentosa Island and I will write about it in the next article.
That’s it for the article about S.E.A. Aquarium etc. in Sentosa Island as part of Day 7. What I am often impressed about Singapore is that the Singapore government takes initiatives to build huge facilities such as Marina Bay Sands even if Singapore is a small country. The S.E.A. Aquarium is another good example to illustrate this.
Just FYI: Here are other aquariums I visited. If you are interested in it, please check my article.
In the next article, I will write about Sentosa Merlion and Siloso Beach etc. in Sentosa Island.
