If you are still wondering where you can bring your kids to unwind in the upcoming June holidays, and prefer something closer to home, Sentosa would be the best option. The little island down south that we have all grown up with, has itself matured to meet the demands of the younger generations.
Whereas in the past we think of Sentosa as Fort Siloso, Surrender Chamber, Palawan beach, Musical Fountain and the holiday chalets, today, the island has remade itself into an ultra-modern destination for both locals and tourists. Most people now know of Sentosa as ResortWorlds Sentosa, with its iconic Universal Studios filled with exciting rides and entertainment.
The good news is, you and your kids can still have plenty of fun and play in Sentosa without having to pay hefty fees to those attractions. Throughout the entire month of June, Sentosa plays host to a huge number of activities targeted at children, including live, play-acted story-telling adventures, puppetry, musicals, and even ukulele workshops! Take time off for some family bonding with your little ones, and let them explore and learn with Playmobil-themed activities.
Here’s a preview the upcoming free activities at the Imbiah Lookout, Sentosa (1-30 Jun 2013).
