Wonderful island right in front of Singapore. It houses a resort and a huge theme park, with esotic animals, dolphins shows, kart tracks etc... it's worth to spend a whole day in here but bring fresh water with you, as queues to enter attractions could be long and under a burning sun. You can get there with the sky cab that leaves from the top of a skyscraper in the southern commercial part of Singapore. If you don't want to spend loads of $$$ for a lunch (restaurants on the island are few and expensive) you can always rely on a Subway Fast Food, close to the main entrance.

Sentosa is a small island off the southern coast of Singapore.  It has a gigantic water park and a huge aquarium.  Its basically an island full of fun :)  I remember running around having loads of fun at the water park with my dad.  The aquarium was stunning.  There was a pond "petting zoo" with an unforgettable sign over it that said, "Please do not squeeze the marine animals."  If you go to Singapore, make sure to take a day to spend on Sentosa.
