SENTOSA SINGAPORE: 2014 Guide to an Awesome Sentosa Experience with DAY FUN PASS!

Sentosa Island Map
(download Sentosa FUN Pass Brochure)

The first time I was planning my Sentosa Trip with the boys in 2013, I had a hard time because I was not familiar with the attractions and their proximity to one another. 

Sentosa is huge and it could be daunting just looking at the map, planning your itinerary and budgeting the trip for the family. 

I was planning to buy the Sentosa Day FUN Pass with a promise of getting access to 20 attractions with a caveat that you have to finish all of them in one day. I wonder if it was even feasible to hop from one attraction to another and enjoy it instead of just ticking them off a list.

After several visits to Sentosa, I would like to share with you how to maximize the BEST of Sentosa attractions with an effective 1-day itinerary at the most efficient cost.

Here's the 2014 Planning Guide to have the most awesome experience at Sentosa using the Sentosa Day FUN Pass:

Changi Recommends-2.jpg

I recently got stuck in Singapore with my 3 boys, and that's where I discovered Changi Recommends, who helped us with our last minute hotel booking

Having data connection is crucial when you travel abroad, especially during times like this. I learned that Changi Recommends offers the best mobile data rate at S$10/day ( ~P350/day) when you travel to Singapore, which is better than local telco data roaming rates.

Check out Changi Recommends on your next trip to Singapore. This also kicks-off the Singapore series in OAP...
