It's the Vesak Day holiday.We wanted to do something we have not done before, so we decided to head down to Sentosa with a budget of $100 for a family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kids age 2 and 6) with the sole purpose of seeking new experiences.
|Ding ding ding, let the challenge began|
Sentosa for less than $100 for a family of 4?
With transportation, parking, entrance to various attractions and food, a day out at Sentosa would probably cause an arm and perhaps a leg too. To be honest, we did not quite set the agenda, but we managed to spend a whole day in Sentosa, visiting 4 attractions, filling our stomachs and topping it off with a day of new experiences for us.
Let the challenge began!
As we are a little famish, we shared a hearty breakfast consisting of toast bread, 2 sunny side up, 2 hotdogs , hash brown, bacon and tea (for mommy). The adults have their breakfast earlier and skipping this meal as they save their stomach for lunch.
Cost : $16.05

|Reflection and Telok Blangah view|
|Angry Birds Cable car|
Cost - $36
|Flying into Sentosa|
This museum was spotted on the right when we exited from the cable car ride. It's another first for us. The museum does tell the history of cable cars pretty well.
|Cable Car Museum|
Cost : Free for cable car ticket holders , normal $3
Attraction 3 : Images of Singapore
|Images of Singapore|
The Imbiah Lookout is a nifty spot to land on Sentosa. With 11 attractions like Butterfly park, Skyline Lug, The Merlion, Tiger Sky Tower, Sentosa 4D, Images of Singapore and lots more.
Rain or shine, there is always something to do at the lookout.

Given that this is not the first spot parents would think of for a visit at Sentosa, we thought a potential review for this spot would be in the cards for future reference. Mark this spot!
There was an ongoing promotions where kids get in free with accompanying adults. This promotion will be extended till 30th June. As for adults, passion card members gets 20% off.
Cost : $16 ( $8 per adult after passion card discount )
By this time, the adults are hungry , so they made a pit stop for lunch at Tastes of Singapore at Images of Singapore. Food and drinks cost about $10 per person. Although we ate earlier, we did take a bite here and there.

We don't need fancy rides , just give us sand and sea and we can still have oodles of fun.
We took the Sentosa Express from the beach station to Impiah Station. It was our first time on the Sentosa express as well!
Tip- if travelling from within Sentosa, the Sentosa Express is free!
Cost : Free
It was a memorable trip for us. We had ate, explore and play in new places that we have yet explore. Furthermore it does not take a bomb to explore Singapore attractions. Compared to the Singapore play pass, we had managed to save a couple for bucks with meals thrown in. We may experience less attractions, but the fun of exploring something new at Sentosa is worth it!
The total cost for our escapade , a grand total of $95.25
|Ging Back to Singapore!|
In 15 minutes time, we were transported back to mainland Singapore.
Parking : Free
Have fun at Sentosa !
