Singapore- the land of new dreams, new vision, latest innovation and fantasies stretched far. When in Singapore, besides checking out the local market, savouring local fare and shopping till your bags brim—there is one attraction that pops onto your must visit list. This is the Universal Studios at Resort World in Sentosa. Home to world class attractions, theme parks, rides and knick knacks galore, the Universal Studios opened doors in May 2011. Given that South East Asia will not have another Universal Studios Park for the next three decades, this Singaporean hotspot is worth all the hype and rush.
Visit it anytime from 7 am in the morning to 10 pm at night. This paradise sees so much demand that you will barely find it sans a crowd. Although it is not on the main island of Singapore but on the tip of Sentosa Peninsula, you can easily hope onto to the Monorail, a shuttle, a cab, public buses or even a cable car to reach Universal Studios.
