If you are interested in trying out some of the more unique experiences exclusive only to Sentosa, we have compiled a list of exciting things you should not miss out on your first visit!
1. Take an enchanting perfumery tour at Scentopia
Scentopia is Sentosa’s latest tourist attraction that offers a one-of-a-kind experience in their wonderful world of aromas. For a bit of background, here is a fun fact: Singapore is a well-known hub for botanical exploration and experimentation, leading to the first-ever botanical garden at Fort Canning and then eventually another, more extensive installation near Orchard. As a result, the Lion City has amassed a vast collection of native and foreign flora species that serve as the inspiration behind Scentopia’s scents.
With that said, Scentopia invites you to excite your senses and take a deep dive into the world of perfumery with deep roots in Asian floral heritage as well as Sentosa’s native flora. Their attractions include augmented reality (AR) and scented exhibits that take you to the 4th dimension, behind-the-scenes facts and history of perfumery, and even perfume-making workshops where you and your friends can dabble at making your own perfumes! All in all, if you are on the lookout for something you have not tried before, stepping into the aromatic scene and getting hands-on with scents at Scentopia should definitely be at the top of your free things to do in Sentosa Singapore.
2. Sail the seas aboard a yacht
There is no doubt that going on a cruise aboard a yacht is an incredible experience in and of itself, but you know what would make it even better? Cruising aboard Singapore’s only luxury superyacht, similar to those vessels of old that relied on the winds to drive them forward into distant lands.
Enjoy a perfect evening at sea while witnessing the beautiful sunset slowly give way to nightfall and the stars above, complemented by the backdrop of the city lighting up in all its glory.
3. Get your blood pumping at a water park
If you are interested in getting active but with a twist, the water park is a 100% must visit. Unlike regular playgrounds, the water park is the first family-friendly floating aqua park based in the heart of Sentosa. It features many obstacle courses for all ages, including trampolines, monkey bars, jump-off platforms, an action tower, and many more. When combining two great things into one novel idea, adventurous kids and adults alike will certainly find the park as thrilling and exciting as expected.
4. Be mesmerised by a light show at the beach
Do you enjoy seeing light-and-music shows that excite the eyes and ears? Be amazed by the beach coming to life as it becomes blanketed by a medley of interactive neon lights and enchanting sounds. See nature in a whole new light.
Sentosa is undoubtedly a natural beauty filled to the brim with plenty of attractions and activities that you would be hard-pressed to experience all it can offer in just one visit.
