Walking the boardwalk - after the sun goes down!
from Sentosa Island to Vivo City, Singapore
Walking the boardwalk will not be an issue if it is hot and sunny or even raining as the canopies are all covered! There are five two-way travellators for your convenience as well as food outlets and shopping retail outlets too! This certainly is a great way to reach Sentosa!
Read the previous blog post on our walk from Sentosa to the boardwalk HERE.
We were lucky when we decided to walk one evening from Silosa Beach to HarbourFront and it was just delightful ..... no crowds, no heat, no sun!
Guests are encouraged to leave their cars behind on mainland Singapore and take the MRT to HarbourFront station at VivoCity Shopping Mall, before making their way to the Sentosa Boardwalk.
Running parallel to Sentosa’s vehicular bridge, the Sentosa Boardwalk provides guests with an experiential walk amid lush landscapes. It is the only garden-themed boardwalk in South-East Asia, and features five tropical landscapes that are indigenous to Singapore.
Overlooking the bay, the Sentosa Boardwalk boasts extensive vantage lookout points for guests to enjoy the sunset, arrival of cruise liners from the sea and outdoor performances.
The $70-million boardwalk from VivoCity to Sentosa features "five different themed gardens, from mangrove, rock garden, terrain and hill, coastal flora and rainforest."
it's very different during the day too, you may not wish to walk the boardwalk then spend all day wandering around Sentosa, but you could easily walk the boardwalk, spend the day by the beach then take the monorail back. The boardwalk could just be your destination too, use the walk to explore the dining facilities that are available as well as the shopping, or sit and watch the ferries coming into HarbourFront.
whatever you do - enjoy!
