“Today, let’s pretend we are tourist and just explore Sentosa like we never came here before!” – So this is what he told me~ And this is how we behave for the next half day 🙂
We are bored of being bored by doing the same things everytime we go out – go to eat, shop, movie.
Anyway we did lost our way, like a tourist, after all. And as the title of this post suggest, we shall use the minimum money to get the most of out our short few hours tour. 🙂

“今天我们就假装我们是旅客吧!” 既然他这么说,我们也就这么做。。。接下来的半天,我们真的把自己当旅客了!:)
(我们也真如旅客般迷路了。。。)
如文章标题,穷旅者当然是用最经济的方式游胜淘沙~

Before

Must eat full full then have energy to walk later, had lunch at  C-Jade Hong Kong Cafe @ Bugis+
吃饱饱才可以好上路啊!

A photo I thought look ‘artistic’ myself. =.=”
自以为很艺术的一张照片。。。

After lunch we took bus 61 over to VivoCity from Bugis, grab some mineral drinks from Giant Super mart and bread from Provence (budget!) and head toward Sentosa.
午餐过后,我们就从武吉士搭61号巴士前往怡丰城了;在Giant 超市买了点水,在Provence买了几个面包。。。胜淘沙,我们来了!

Sweep panorama view from Vivo before we start the Sentosa Boardwalk.
出发之前先来一张全景照!

Sunglasses have more then one usage actually…
谁说太阳眼睛只有一种用途?

Demon power!
The wind just spoilt what I visualized to be a very cool pic…
魔女出动!原本以为可以拍一张很“酷”的照片,奈何“风”不作美。。。

LOL. We really bought the entry ticket like a tourist at the ticket booth with cash!
哈哈!我们也真如旅客般地在售票亭用现金购买门票。。。

In Sentosa
Once you reached the other end of the boardwalk, you will be able to see the Sentosa Visitor Centre right in front. It’s opening 9am – 8pm daily. You can go inside to check for information on navigating around the island (and like us, enjoy the cooling aircon while pretending to be looking at the map for direction).

一旦你抵达浮桥的另一端,圣淘沙游客中心就在眼前。它的开放时间是上午9点至晚上8点。你可以进去里面询问圣淘沙的资料(或像我们一样,一边享受冷气,一边假装查看地图)。

G keep telling me he want to go Tanjong Beach, so we took the monorail to Beach station to take a Beach Tram over as I swear you will see us get evaporated into the air if we travel by foot on this sunny day.
我们决定搭单轨列车到海滩站,转搭海滩电车到我们的目的地 – 丹戎海滩。

Note that there are actually Trams traveling to 2 opposite directions, one toward Tanjong Beach & Palawan Beach (you need to cross the small road to cross over to take the tram), and the other to Siloso Beach. We waited at the wrong direction and missed the first Tram, after which we waited for like 12-15minutes for the next one.
值得注意的是,海滩电车实际上有2条不同的路线哦!
一条前往西乐索海滩;另一条则前往丹戎/巴拉湾海滩,离海滩站稍远,得越过小路,两条路线的方向是相反的。
我们在前往西乐索海滩的电车站等候了好几分钟才发现等错站,结果错过了第一辆前往丹戎/巴拉湾海滩的海滩电车,只好乘搭下一辆(大概在15分钟后才抵达)。

Uncle photo bomb me so I just add filter to the photo to match his age :X
大叔竟然在我拍照的时候大摇大摆的走进来。。。那我就加上配合他年龄的照片滤镜吧。。。
Anyway G is sotong king! The beach with ‘two towers’ is Palawan beach and not Tanjong Beach,
luckily we got down from the tram in the correct beach.
G 真是糊涂蛋!有双子塔的海滩,是巴拉望岛海滩而不是丹戎海滩,幸好我们“认塔不认滩”。

G acting cool.
This tree soon become a hotspot after people see him posing there to take photo… =.=”
G在扮“酷”!在他之后,这棵树很快就成为其他旅客拍照的热点

Danbo also want to cross the bridge
阿愣也想过桥

Couple playing in water under the sun, so sweet…
沙滩戏水,好甜蜜哦。。。

Something flying above us, is it a giant mosquito?!
Nah, is a helicopter preparing for National Day 🙂
巨蚊从天而过?当然不是,是在为国庆日彩排的直升机啦! 🙂

We got up to one of the towers, and are supposed to be at the “Southernmost Point of Continental Asia” (and also Asia’s closest point to the Equator?).
我们爬上了其中一个塔,据说它位于“亚洲大陆最南端”(也是亚洲赤道最近点)。

Another sweep panorama view of the beach take from one of the tower
另一张全景照

How come the bridge look so empty now but filled with people whenever  I want to cross it?
怎么这桥在我要渡过时人多多,现在却不见人影?

After admiring the view for a while we decided to walk back to Beach Station while hoping to catch some places of interest with free admission fee…
欣赏美景后,决定走回海滩站。。。

Too hot, Danbo need shades
好热,连阿愣也想躲起来乘凉

There still a long route ahead to walk back to the Beach Station
回海滩站的路,还很长很长

Guess what, there are free show~~ Opps, to be clearer… we passed by the Palawan Amphitheatre where we can watch performance of monkeys, reptiles and parrots for FREE!
Palawan Amphitheatre is open daily, with shows run from 2.00pm till 5.30pm.

有免费的节目〜〜
明确点地说,我们经过了可以看免费猴子,爬行动物和鹦鹉表演的巴拉望岛露天剧!

巴拉望岛剧场每天下午2时至下午5时30分都有演出哦!

Daily Programmes (每日表演时间表
2.00pm – 2.15pm Lory Feeding at the Bird Aviary (Live commentary on Lories at Bird Aviary)
3.00pm – 3.30pm Teach us Wild (A close encounter with animals at Port of Lost Wonder)
4.00pm – 4.15pm Animal Friends of Sentosa (A close encounter learning and photo-opportunity)
5.00pm – 5.30pm On the Wild Side (Multi-animal Encounters at Palawan Amphitheatre)

We were late so we didn’t get to watch the performance.
只是。。。迟来的旅者没戏看!:(

Sleep mode(above) and awake mode (below)

Once we reached the Beach Station, we hide inside McDonald’s for a super COLD drink and free aircon. 😛
After which we decided to walk back to VivoCity by the boardwalk to burn off some fats.
一到海滩站,我们便躲进麦当劳享受冷饮和冷气~ 休息够了,决定漫步回去怡丰城。

Woof woof~
Nice night scenery! Can you spot the moon?
好美的夜景!你找到月亮了吗?

We are too lazy to explore the whole island in the short time frame, but I sort of like this rest and relax touring style.
You can also try the following activities:

  • Swimming
  • Picnic
  • Suntan
  • Building sand castle
  • Ride Bicycle
  • Playing beach ball

My only regret for the day… not bringing insect repellent along as I got a lot of love bites from mosquitoes and ants T__T

时间太短,人太懒,所以只呆在巴拉湾海滩。。。不过,我还真喜欢这种悠哉的旅游方式。
其实如果你不像我们这么懒, 也可以试试:

  • 游泳
  • 野餐
  • 日光浴
  • 玩沙
  • 骑脚车
  • 玩沙滩排球

唯独后悔的是,我没有带驱蚊剂,让我不小心得到了许多蚊子和蚂蚁的”爱之吻“。
