Sentosa - Part 2 of 2 ( Tg/Palawan Beach, Merlion)

Hopped onto a tram and headed towards Tg Beach..
Saw this massive structure ...

Sand Sea and Breeze
more Sand...
@Palawan beach, crossing the bridge

Water looked deceptively clear and clean ...

Petrochemical storage tanks glittering in the distance
indulge in Ocean vessels spotting, enjoy the breeze.. before taking tram/bus back to Beach Station

Beach Station - Merlion is a little walk away

Silhouette - Shot from the Beach station -

dip your feet into the shallow pools to cool off if you want..

Merlion - we wanted to 'climb' to the top ..

Inside the merlion at basement - static display , a short cartoon about Merlion, feed your token to merlions and obtained a mysterious gift. Then take a lift to the 10th floorfeed the token to one of the Merlions there and out spat a card - your mysterious gift

Lighting fixture 'poked' through the wall from inside.

Take a lift inside the Merlion .... 10 floors up.

back at the mainland Singapore , Vivo City - Sky Park

Shallow pools to cool off from the hot sun

Ugly Butt not welcomed!

Well we did what we ( or our kids) wanted to do : took the cable car, experienced the 'Luge', went up to the Merlion's head, strolled on the beaches from Tanjong to Palawan, rode in Sentosa Express and beach tram. Getting around in Sentosa now is much much easier and pleasant than before. For a family of 4 be prepared to fork out $200 or more for a day trip.
