[Introduction]

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.

[Main Part]

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.Singapore Killiney

I ordered a Kaya Toast set.Singapore Killiney Kaya Toast

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 Map

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.

S.E.A. Aquarium

In the morning, I visited S.E.A. Aquarium in the Resort World Sentosa.Singapore Sentosa S.E.A. Aquarium1

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.

After lunch, I continued to walk around Sentosa Island and I will write about it in the next article.

[Closing]

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.
