Sentosa island is a very popular tourist destination in Singapore. Over time, the island has been converted into a major tourist destination with the addition of more tourist attractions. Entry into Sentosa is a controlled entry, with the payment of a fee required to enter into the island. Further, the tourist attractiveness of Sentosa is enhanced through the provisions of a number of bulk passes that are sold all over the city and that allow visitors access to multiple tourist attractions. Some of the attractions of the city include Universal Studios (and the various rides within the city), Underwater world, a very tall observation platform called Tiger sky Tower, a 4d theatre, a Merlion statue allowing visitors to climb to the top of the statue, the cable car connecting Sentosa to Singapore, a monorail which also connects Singapore to Sentosa, a laser and music performance called Songs of the Sea.
This is a view from the Skyride in Sentosa where there is a metal bench that takes visitors from near the Beach Station to the Imbiah Lookout, the site of many other tourist attractions. The Skyride takes a few minutes and gives a great view. Visitors can also combine the skyride with a luge that takes the visitor back downhill.
