SG Series: Day 1 – SEA Aquarium

Last week, I had the chance to explore Singapore for 3 days. It had been a while since the last time I visited this beautiful country—that is actually not that far from Jakarta. This trip was planned all of a sudden, all prepared by my sister, Clara—from flight tickets to Airbnb room. We knew there were 2 tourist spots that we had to visit (or more like what my mom wanted to), which were SEA Aquarium and Gardens by the Bay.

We were supposed to visit those two places in one day, but my sister bought the SEA Aquarium ticket for Feb 2nd—the day we departed from Jakarta. We were nervous that we wouldn’t make it to the giant aquarium as it closes at 7 PM, but thank God our flight arrived earlier than it was scheduled and we had plenty of time to explore this beautiful (water-filled) place.

(Read how we got to SEA Aquarium below)

If I could describe the creatures living inside this place, it would be: amazing. There is something crazy about it. The diversity, the colors, the unique shapes, and so much more. I got to see real jellyfishes and they were big like the kind I used to watch on Spongebob cartoon, the only thing is that they’re not pink—more like blue color. I could talk so much about the other creatures—like hammerhead shark, seahorses, red jellyfishes with long tentacles—but it won’t do much justice as they’re too pretty to be just written in words. I managed to get some shots of the creatures—some that I don’t know the names of. They definitely look even more amazing in real life, as you could enjoy the “view” with your own eyes. Trust me, it was a relaxing yet fun experience.

PS. When we visited this tourist destination, a Pokemon exhibition was held where we could play fun game to guess which animal was inside our chosen pokeball. However, you have to pay an addition of SGD 8 in order to get into this exhibition.

Of course I managed to take some time to have my outfit photos taken before going inside the aquarium, lol!

After a pretty long day visiting the aquarium, we decided to treat ourselves with some drinks from Gongcha! #notsponsored

How to go to SEA Aquarium:

We took a GrabCar ride (or you could just use Uber instead) from Boon Teck Road to Vivo City for like 10 mins. If you have plenty of time, use the MRT instead as it is more affordable and stop by the HarbourFront station. After arriving at the Vivo City, go to the Lobby L, Level 3, and buy your ticket for the Sentosa Express (costs SGD 4). Using this monorail, you could reach the Sentosa Island in like 3-4 mins. When you arrive, follow the direction to the Sentosa Aquarium.

About the SEA Aquarium tickets:

We bought the tickets online from rwsentosa.com and as soon as we finished the payment, an email was sent with the invoice and tickets attached. Make sure to print the ticket (with the barcode on) and you won’t have to redeem it anymore. Go to the entrance and show the paper to the staffs. They would scan the barcode right away and that’s it!
