Sentosa Island Singapore
Cable car ride is around 10 min. It drops you down at Imbiah Lookout. The sight of a "Subway" joint and almost noon on our watches was an appetizer. Travelling with a kid also means you need to take eating breaks more often and much longer. But that is the fun too. The kind of mind games you play with kids to engage and entertain them so that they finish off their meal/snack.
I havent been to any big aquarium before. So this was pretty interesting to me too. There were numerous kinds of species that were categorized into different ecosystems. Each ecosystem was a replica of the flora and fauna from a particular geography. If you dont want to do scuba diving (which I anyways dont like), but you want to see various underwater places around the world, I would say the Sea World gave a nice snapshot.
You would be fascinated by variety and colorfulness of the fishes. Some were ugly too!! Even after 3 hours of fish gazing (is there a better word for this experience), Varsha was so upset to come out. Picture talks more than what I can describe.
|Dont call me! I am not coming with you|
We did visit Mount Faber on the way back. You dont need to get down from the cable car at Harbour Front. Just tell the operator that you are going further. Except the views that you would see from the cable car, there is nothing much to do up there. May be just enjoy a cup of coffee (or beer) by the ledge and watch the string of cable cars moving along.
It was time to say bye-bye Singapore. Our final destination, Melbourne, was beckoning us. This was just a stop over. One thing was sure for us. We would come again, probably when Varsha is old enough to go on all those adventure rides at Sentosa.
