We visited Underwater World Sentosa (UWS ) during our stay at Resort World Sentosa. We checked out at 1 pm, so we had the afternoon free. After surveying our options we decided to drive into Sentosa for a impromptu trip to UWS.
Underwater World Singapore, situated on Sentosa Island of Singapore, is a unique and well-known oceanarium showcasing some 2500 marine life from 250 species from around the regions and is extremely popular with all our visitors for providing fun, leisure and educational experiences. Since our opening in 1991, close to 30 million visitors have been won over by our exhibits. With our aim to provide every visitor with a unique fun filled experience, Underwater World Singapore is actively involved in regular product renewal and program innovation.

My last visit to UWS
|Shark at the entrance|
It was time for the Dolphin and Fur Seal show. The show was held at a new Dolphin Lagoon (the last time it was at Palawan Beach ).
|The Seal Act|
The show was rather short, at about 30 minutes. As for the performance, the acts were limited and not as impressive as the ones we saw at SeaWorld Gold Coast. There are 5 sessions of shows per day. I think the frequency is too high given that these animals need rest as well.

|The Jelly World @ Underwater World|
The exhibits look the same as the last time we saw in back in 2009
|New Exhibit 2?|
If you do notice, there are actually 2 sections of the aquarium. The generic fishes are housed on 1 side of the aquarium. The bigger fishes like sharks ad stingrays are on the other side.
|The giant crabs!|
If you are visiting the Underwater World Sentosa for the first time, it is still worth a look. However if you had been there over the last few years, do not expect any big changes (other than the dolphin show). Given the other options in Sentosa, you may wish to explore other places instead as you may not have the Wow experience as compared to before.
