A newfound sense of wonder

MANILA, Philippines – Learning doesn’t always equate with school and poring over books.

Some of the more important lessons in life are discovered outdoors.

Visits to nature parks, resorts, and even amusement parks are associated with fun and relaxation. But these places also present opportunities for children – and even adults – to marvel about the world and understand it better.

Resorts World Sentosa Singapore has many attractions that will satiate your appetite for novel experiences. Check out all the things you can "learn" there:

Awaken your curiosity for the world

WONDERS OF THE SEA. The S.E.A. Aquarium is home to 100,000 marine animals from 800 species and across 49 different habitats

The world’s oceans and seas cover an astounding 70% of the Earth’s surface. What we don’t know about the oceans of the world far outweighs what we do know.

At the S.E.A. Aquarium, get a glimpse of fascinating, colorful, and larger-than-life sea creatures in habitats designed to mimic their places of origin. Seeing them swim over your heads or right before your eyes and meeting strange new critters for the first time will surely leave you in awe no matter how old you are.

When you visit, make sure to plan accordingly and allot at least two hours so you don’t have to be in a rush! If you can, go on a weekday so it’s not too crowded.

These shows inspire a wide array of rides, shows, attractions, and meet & greets.

New experiences give you an adrenaline rush – and train you to be prepared for exciting challengers in your life.

Unlike many waterparks, the Adventure Cove Waterpark not only has thrilling slides, it also allows guests to immerse in marine habitats with thousands of colorful fishes and rays.

For just this summer, the waterpark has prepared water games and sports that all guests can participate in as they enjoy live DJ music.

Make sure to check out the most popular attractions first, like Rainbow Reef and Riptide Rocket.

Go on a gastronomic journey

One of the best ways to know a country is through its food. Asia alone boasts of many unique and must-try cuisines that reflect each country’s rich culture and heritage – but you don’t have to travel far and wide just to sample them.

Resorts World Sentosa hosts an array of restaurants that feature Asian, Western, and Halal cuisine featuring sumptuous dishes whipped up by celebrity chefs.

When you visit from August 12 to 20, you can catch RWS Street Eats, which puts all the best and authentic Asian flavors from renowned street food hawkers in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and Singapore. There will also be live music and open mic performances, a beer garden, and pop up food and retail booths.
