Located just south of Singapore, Sentosa Island is a wonderland that can be easily reached by car, light rail, covered walkway, and cable car. Young explorers will love the Universal Studios theme park, Adventure Cove Waterpark, and Southeast Asia’s largest aquarium, while grown ones will marvel at the myriad resort, spa, and dining options. Find respite from the city on one of the island’s sandy, palm tree–studded beaches. Or join the party crowd on Sunday afternoons at Tanjong Beach Club, where you can swim in the infinity pool or lounge in one of the chic cabanas on a cushy day bed.

Sentosa Island: The Playground
Sentosa Island is a huge playground in Singapore with something for everyone: Nice sandy beaches, go carts, dolphin and sea lion shows (and pink dolphins), a 4D movie experience, a butterfly park, and so on.
It is not a cheap day out, but well worth a visit if you are traveling with kids—they will absolutely love this place. The most interesting way to get there is by cable car, as you get a great view over the island.
