This is a photo blog of the landmarks that you need to remember if you are going to Universal Studios Singapore from Le Meridien Hotel Sentosa.
You can ride an express train or take a little time to walk. I suggest you do the second option and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It’s only about 5-10 minutes walk.
Since the rooms here are expensive with a security deposit of $100 SGD per night, we had a twin-sharing of hotel room. The front view of our room is facing the big Merlion statue, while the back is a construction site. We decided to let the window blinds down the entire stay because we don’t like some construction men as audience from our room. Haha!
The twin-sharing room is not so big enough for two people. It has two beds that are placed very close to each other. The room is not sound-proof. I wouldn’t suggest it as a place for honeymoon (*wink*). However, I would commend the bathroom area, it is very spacious with big bath tub, a separate shower cubicle and toilet. I hope there’s a soft chair/furniture inside if you have to spend sometime doing your make-ups or skin rituals. And ooops, the toiletries are not enough for two people considering it’s a twin-sharing room. So, you still have to call to request for additional body wash, shampoos, etc. 🙂
This is the facade of the hotel. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the next steps above but it’s beautiful. The steps are covered with a bed of bermuda grass replica. A good spot to have photo shoots.
From here, cross the street and you’ll get to the Sentosa express station. Straight ahead and you’ll see the SENTOSA letter statue with the huge Merlion at the background. This is the Merlion Plaza.
If you walk a few more steps from here, you’ll see a ticketing office. We stopped here for a while to claim the tickets for our company’s team building to Sentosa island.
Afterwards, go to your right and go down the escalator to the festive walk.
The climate here is hot, just like here in the Philippines. So, I suggest you just wear sleeveless, walking shorts or any light clothing.
And we are half-way there! One more escalator going down and we’re already at Resorts World Sentosa – Lake of Dreams…
Here’s a very, very short video to let you see how beautiful it is. I am so amazed how clean this place is. Although there are so many tourists here, everyone abides the law not to litter.
A few more steps and we’re finally at Universal Studios Sentosa, Singapore!
That easy! But if you don’t want to start your day walking, you always have a choice to ride the express train. 🙂
