Housing more than 100,000 marine animals spanning across 800 species, S.E.A Aquarium’s 10 different zones offer entry into an underwater paradise. Nowhere is this otherworldly experience more apparent than at the Open Ocean Habitat, featuring panoramic floor-to-ceiling glass panels and surreal, pinch-me-I’m-dreaming views of manta rays, leopard sharks and goliath groupers. While you’d be content to spend the day mesmerised by the movements of these gentle giants, don’t forget to traverse the Shark Seas, which contains endangered species like the scalloped hammerhead shark; the South China Sea, which has a moray eel habitat, where kids can crawl into a “cave” for a close-up view; and the Strait of Karimata and Java Sea, where schools of fish navigate their way through a monumental shipwreck.
A 15-minute drive from the city centre, Sentosa is an island resort that is home to a diverse array of attractions, from theme parks and museums to beaches, parks and golf courses. Visit http://www.sentosa.com.sg/ for more information.
