Resorts World Sentosa is also home to one of the world’s largest aquariums—S.E.A. AquariumTM. This repository of knowledge houses 1,00,000 marine animals from over 1,000 different species. Get up close with a variety of shark species in the Shark Seas exhibit, or explore the mysteries of underwater wreckage at the Shipwreck Habitat. To get an idea of the scale of this aquarium, head over to the Open Ocean Habitat, where you will surely gasp at the aquatic animals that are separated from you by one of the world’s largest acrylic panels, from the ceiling to the floor!
With grand exhibits that are visually spectacular as well as greatly informative, this aquarium has also taken the lead in conservation of marine life and boosting the populations of threatened sharks and other fish species. To that end, the aquarium also works closely with global marine conservation organizations to rebuild endangered populations and spread awareness about the same.
For some aquatic adventures, don’t forget to check out this attraction which is Southeast Asia’s only aquatic park integrated with marine life. It is a treat for water babies who want to spend a day frolicking in the water, experiencing thrilling slides, swimming in the wave pool or floating down Adventure River. Not to mention the numerous food and beverage offerings scattered across the park for when you want to take a break from the adventuring!
Along with rides like the Tidal Twister and the Riptide Rocket, the Rainbow Reef provides an insight into the beautiful world of coral ecosystems. Apart from the beautiful corals, visitors can also snorkel with over 20000 friendly fishes up close!
The Maritime Silk Route was one of the world’s most important trade routes which shaped international relations for many centuries. Resorts World Sentosa pays homage to this great facilitator of trade and commerce through Singapore’s first and only museum dedicated to the ships, explorers and history of the maritime silk route through the years.
At this one-of-a-kind repository of knowledge, visitors are greeted with the statues of four stalwarts of maritime exploration, Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta, Sang Nila Utama and Zheng He. Next are their holographs which dispense information about their own adventures and the tales of the time. The museum also features life-size replicas of ships, recreations of the bustling erstwhile ports and innovative visual representations of the trade routes and the goods moved along the same – a truly immersive dive into the world of medieval maritime exploration.
