Sentosa has heaps of attractions but this is my pick of '5 Things You Should Do In Sentosa'. It's been tried and tested by yours truly and I would visit any of these attractions again. Maybe not the Cable Car but then again who knows!
1) Take the Cable Car
It's a journey to Sentosa like none other. You'll literally get a birds eye view of some popular attractions like Adventure Cove, the Merlion and a stunning 360-degree view of the Southern precinct. If you have a phobia of heights like myself, don't panic because you'll live through it!

|That's my girlfriend Stephanie on the right and her sister Stesha on the left. Stesha is such an awesome young lady. I love her!|
|Fear of heights ain't a good thing.|
|Check out all those people at Adventure Cove.|
|If you look carefully, you'll see a dolphin in the pool.|
|My baby boo!|
2) Sentosa 4D AdventureLand
This is as fun as 4D adventure rides get! We were lucky enough to be at this attraction because they had two ghostly specials in the evenings just for Halloween. It's pretty hard to choose which is my favourite among the "Extreme Log Ride", Asia’s first 4-D Interactive Shoot-Out game “Desperados” and 4-D movie "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" which stars the most electrifying man in sports entertainment, The Rock.
I'd have to go with the Extreme Log Ride. Only because I prefer simulation rides rather than actual roller coasters!

3) Images of Singapore
Wanna know more about Singapore? Then Images of Singapore is the place to be. The various sections in this award winning attraction tells the story of Singapore from our early beginnings to present day. I love how they have captured the various cultures with life-sized tableaus . Well done Sentosa! History buffs will love to know that the attraction is housed in a former military hospital known as the "Sick Quarters", used throughout 1893–1950.

4) Songs of the Sea
Songs of the Sea was built to replace the old Musical Fountain which was its star attraction back in the old day. One big difference is the latter was free admission. As a kid, I remember being mesmerized by the water effects. I'm still mesmerized by the water effects till this day and the added laser show, fireballs and pyrotechnics are a visual treat!
5) Skyline Luge Sentosa
My initial thoughts were "Oh man this will be boring!". Can you blame me? How exciting can a plastic looking car be right? Well I'm here to tell you that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.
Luge was so fun we did it TWICE. All one needs to do is to pull down the handlebar for the luge cart to move forward and release if you need to brake. Yes it's a no brainer! You'll fast realize as you drive down hills that your cart can go fast so be sure to brake when you need to.

|Don't look down if you are afraid of heights!|
ps: The Megazip flying fox is another fun attraction. It's over 450 metres long and 72 metres above sea level. Also if you are looking for a place to dine in Sentosa, Trapizza serves to die for pizzas and cold beers by the beach.
