It was now Day 3 of our Singapore holiday. Today, we decided to visit Universal Studios. That meant heading back to Sentosa Island yet again.
We have been to a couple of Universal Studios around the word ... but can never seem to get bored of it. So, we followed yesterday's sequence of events, which was taking a underground train to VivoCity mall and then Sentosa Express to Universal Studios. We got down at Waterfront Station.
You can purchase the the entry ticket to Universal Studios online or at the venue. We decided to purchase it online as we didn't know what the situation would be like there. No one wants to waste time standing in a line. Oh, and we even got an Universal Express Pass. With this pass, you have a separate line for all the attractions. That means you finish everything quickly. Note that, this pass gives you access to all the attractions just once. However, if you get an Universal Unlimited Express Pass,you can access the attractions any number of times. Its entirely upto you. We wanted to try out everything once and leave Sentosa Island.
Universal Studios has a little something for everyone. It doesn't matter if you're a chicken like me or a brave-heart like Mr. D ... you can still have fun. Hats of to Mr D and my cousins for accompanying me on some of the kiddy rides. Some of my favourite shows were Lights Camera Action! and Waterworld. Check out the show timings in advance so that you don't miss out on them.
Some of the rides that we enjoyed were - Battlestar Galactica, Accelerator, Revenge of the Mummy, Treasure Hunters and Canopy Flyer, King Julien's Beach Part Go Round. We left Universal Studios around 5pm for our next stop - Bugis Street.
Bugis Street is Singapore's budget shopping heaven filled with a scores of shops all crammed under one roof. There's everything from clothing to handbags, accessories to souvenirs, makeup etc. They do not have trial rooms ... so you've to just analyze a dress and see if it fits you. If you are not as skinny as most of the Singaporeans ... there are chances that you might not find an outfit ( I had a bit of trouble finding something for myself ). Bugis Street also has are a number of eateries. Bubble tea fans will love it here! Do not miss out on the Chocolate Origin Lava cake at Bugis Junction.
