Sentosa Island, Singapore Review

One of the best parts of living the expat life seem to be the exotic vacations.  This month, we spent some time on Senotsa Island, in Singapore.

Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa Resort

This was my first visit to Singapore, and while I will say the place wasn't as "clean" as I'd imagined, I still saw trash on the side of the roads, it was very nice!  Really nice weather, really nice people, and wow does it get hot that close to the Ecuador though!

We opted for a resort type vacation with beach and pool being our main objectives.  We stayed at the Shangri La on Sentosa Island.  Sentosa is made up of a bunch of hotels, beaches and Resorts World which has Universal Studios, S.E.A Aquarium, 60 restaurants and a casino on property, just to name a few activities.

I enjoyed the S.E.A. Aquarium the most, over 800 species of water life, and the largest aquarium in the world. We saw some beautiful and unusual fish and other sea life.  It was amazing!

Some local wildlife that beg at the restaurant at the resort.

My stay wouldn't have been complete without a trip to the local McDonald's to see what different things were on the menu. I tried a cheeseburger which was WAY better than the ones in China, and then we tried Seaweed Fries, which were just regular french fries with this seaweed/salt combo added.  Not too bad, but I won't be requesting it in the U.S.

Last but not least was a very nice dinner on a cable car, overlooking the water and the entire island. Quite the experience, eating and moving at the same time, very high up!

I would definitely go back to Sentosa, and Singapore!
