Our third day in Singapore we started at 10.00am to Snow city, which is just next door from my friend’s house at Jurong East. Snow city is the first permanent indoor snow centre in Singapore.Here the snow has been formed artificially. Snow City is a a combined project of the Singapore Science Centre and NTUC Income. For 1 hour Snow Play time we had to pay S$14 per person. Cameras are not allowed in the Snow Chamber.Jackets and boots will be provided before entering this winter wonderland. Wearing of long pants is compulsory.
There will be professional cameraman to take picture in the chamber. A three-storey high snow slope allows the visitors to ski, snowboard and snow tube. We had really experienced a real snow, a sub-freezing climate and had lot of fun while sliding down the snow slope on an inflatable tube. The paint of alpine and polar landscapes on the surrounding walls has added a good ambiance to the whole atmosphere. That was an unforgettable, marvelous experience for us. Don’t miss the snow city ,if you are planning a trip to Singapore. If you have time visit Science centre (near to snow city) which offers more than 12 exhibition galleries and 10,00 interactive exhibits including outdoor exhibits such as eco garden and the award winning water works.

Sentosa underwater world
After chilling out in snow city, we had a nice lunch from our friends house with mouth watering and delious avial, we started to Sentosa by MRT. After a few photo shoots in front of huge Merlion staue, we purchased the ticket for underwater world,Asia’s largest oceanarium with 2500 marine animals from 250 species. The rate for entering the underwater world is S$25.90 for adults and for children S$17.60 and opens from 9.00am to 9.00pm. We were in a new world as we travel through an 83 meters long acrylic tunnel and facing the creatures of the sea. We feed the fishes through openings at the side of the MAGIC Ttank.It was a delightfull experience for me to up-close a wide diversity of marine life which include various species of sharks, stingrays, turtles and sea dragons and other vibrantly coloured fins. It was a spectacular journey with the widest array of ocean creatures.
Another remarkable experience is at Fish Reflexology where we step our feets into a warm pool and witnessed the spa fish swimming up and nibbling away the dead skin. Don’t miss the dolphin show where friendly pink dolphins will melt hands with playful antics. You can also discover and explore fascinating marine life through dive and swim programmes like dive with dolphins, dugong, and sharks with extra fees.It was an incredible novel experience for us in that amazing aquatic world.
