Sentosa Island 1 day

Hi, is 1 day at Sentosa Island start out around early in the morning enough to enjoy the rides and the cable car? As well as the beaches?

The under world water, is that pretty much an aquarium? Thinking of doing universal studio too, but that's debatable.

Do we need to stay close to Sentosa Island?

Hello,

One full day will be enough to have some fun on Sentosa. No need to stay on Sentosa or down near Harbourfront. Just choose a hotel/hostel within walking distance of an MRT Underground Train Station or grab a taxi and you can be over on Sentosa within 20-30 minutes. A combination of MRT to Harbourfront, then walk through Vivo Mall up to the Sentosa Express Monorail station and its a 2 minute ride over to the Island. This link has the details for getting there and around the Island:-

Yes, there's a "Merlion tower" in Sentosa. There're 2 smaller ones at One Fullerton (not Marina Bay) just for a Kodak moment.

The one in Sentosa is much nicer but you need to pay an entrance fee. See here - sentosa.com.sg/en/…

There's Merlions in more than one place.

Merlion Park at the mouth of the river has two statues - one fountains water into the bay, the other is a bit taller than human sized for photos.

Sentosa has the Merlion viewing platform - its much bigger, for the entry fee there's a brief AV animated presentation about the Merlion, then you head up in the lift to the Viewing Galleries - one in the mouth and another higher up one at the top of Merlion - plus a lottery based freebie of Sentosa gift item (fans usually, occasionally a key ring, or bottle opener and if you get lucky a set of Sentosa coasters). THe Merlion doesnt take you up as high as the Skytower but you have complete control over time and angle of viewing so in some ways is the better photo platform.
