Orchard Road, Ion Sky & Sentosa Island Singapore

posted in: Singapore | 0

Today we followed the ultimate shopping trail in Orchard Road Singapore, if you want ‘it’, this is where it will undoubtedly be found amongst the stunning architecture and artworks. We came across at least 2 displays of lion dancers blessing businesses during Chinese New Year celebrations, but over past few days we have heard the roar of drumming throughout Singapore. We headed up the Ion Sky Viewing floor located on floor 55 at 218 metres with a 360 degree view over the clouds. ION Sky also an art gallery, restaurant and entertainment facility for major international events, its located at 2 Orchard Turn ION Orchard Singapore. Worn out we headed back to Holland Village for R & R before heading out with the D Family to one of Singapores favourite places, Sentosa Island fantasy adventure playground for young and old with over 20 million visitors per year. As many Islands, in 1942 Sentosa was a prisoner war camp housing Australian and British prisoners belonging to the Japanese. Then 1947  it became the Regiment of the Royal Artillery. In 1967 it was handed to the Singapore Armed forces and 1972 developments began to make the island into a resort. Since then over 900 million dollars has been poured into the Sentosa Island, a wonderland for the whole world to enjoy and come together – I like happy endings 🙂 Whether youre a back-packer, local, on a date or alone, this place has something for everyone and every budget. You can just hang on Tanjong Beach and play volley ball, walk through the Sentosa boardwalk gardens, head to Universal Studios Theme Park, ride cable cars to the top of the hill and go cart down (as we did, heads up take your camera for a spectacular view), go on the zip-line, go to the marine park, aquarium or just hang at the restaurants & beaches which turn into nightclubs as the families subside. Thank you for the intro D family for another fantastic night xx Please follow this linke to see more photos https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.457147544451388.1073741844.441531179346358&type=3
