Universal Studio Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore is located within Resorts World Sentosa on Sentosa Island, Singapore. It features 24 rides, shows and attractions in seven different themed zones.

This was our second trip and as usual kids loved it. The Sci-Fi City roller coaster and 360 degree roller coaster rides are amazing I did not go on them but my son and wife were brave enough to jump on them and they totally loved it. If you are strong hearted and like super speedy sudden wavering falls and upside down revolutions, these rides will surely give you adrenaline rush.


The revenge of the Mummy roller coaster was good but took over half an hour to get to, due to massive queue, which never seemed to end. It was only here that we regrated not spending little extra for the express pass.

The Shrek 4D adventure was my favourites with special effects they had, to make experience as real as it could be.  Also, exciting was Donkey Live, both Shrek and Donkey live are part of Far Far Away section.What really made it enjoyable was lady host who drove energy in everyone and made it fun.

Kids enjoyed Madagascar section as well and enjoyed the rides. The Lost World section was exciting but also had massive queues.

New York Section had an attraction (Lights, Camera, Action! Hosted by Steven Spielberg). Which was like a set of movie where they did a good imitation of an earthquake and storm that was very interesting.

We enjoyed Universal Studio Singapore and was more than we expected, thinking it would be small and with less rides, we were surprised but definitely gets very crowded.

Merlion Park, Singapore

Merlion Park, is a Singapore landmark and major tourist attraction, located at One Fullerton, Singapore, near the Central Business District. You can’t go to Singapore & not visit the Merlion (Mermaid with lion head)specially its the face of Singapore Tourism globally.

If you are walking around Clark Quay and the Singapore river area you are just a few steps away from the Merlion. It is around the corner facing the harbour. It is nothing more than a statue at the end of the river but the views of the city and river from the observation platform are amazing. The statue itself is nothing spectacular but it is iconic as it is a symbol chosen for and represents Singapore. The Statue faces towards the River Bay and water is oozing out of its mouth.  The park gives you a great location to take many memorable & scenic photos, including the Merlion statue, stadium on the water, or the Marina Sands Bay Hotel.

Walking past all the skyscrapers and restaurants is fun as well as some of the buildings in the old colonial district. There are various restaurants and bars close by. You can also catch a glimpse of the Merlion if you are taking the river cruse from Clark Quay.

Its name combines “mer”, meaning the sea, and “lion”. The fish body represents Singapore’s origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means “sea town” in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore’s original name—Singapura—meaning “lion city” or “kota singa”.
