Sentosa PLAYcation: ‘Tis the season of fun times and well-wishes!


This holiday, Sentosa PLAYcation is offering many fun options for those of us who are staying in Singapore for the holidays.

Sentosa PLAYcation has something for everyone in the family this holiday season. The island has been transformed into a world of colours with festive decorations and lots of fun activities for every age.

From crafty activities for the kids to a stunning video mapping display of the Merlion ‘dancing’ into the night, here’s a look at some of the highlights of Sentosa PLAYcation, happening from now till 1 January 2014:

Merlion 3D video mapping

It was highlighted on our agenda as a ‘MUST SEE’, thus we headed over to the huge Merlion tower for some happy family shots with Singapore’s much-loved icon. We were pleasantly surprised by what we saw, as cool 3D video images were projected onto the façade of the half-lion, half-fish figure – with upbeat festive music playing in the background. This nightly show will definitely delight both the adults and children.

You can check out this amazing show every evening at the Merlion Plaza on Sentosa at the following times:
Time: 7.30pm, 8.30pm, 9.30pm (Friday and Saturday);
7.30pm, 8.00pm, 8.30pm, 9.00pm, 9.30pm (Sunday to Thursday)

Grill n’ Chill


All that running around to check out the sights and sounds of the Sentosa PLAYcation made us hungry! So we made our way down to the food square to try out their tempting spread of local delights and tasty grills. We were treated to a live band performance. We were told that different performers and ensembles will be performing at the food square each week, featuring bands like The Blokes, Fuze Collective, Smokey & Skunk Jive and many more.

Check here for the dates and timing of the performances.

Grill n’ Chill is open every Friday and Saturday from now till 14 December 2013, and daily from 20-28 December 2013
Time: 2.30pm to 9.30pm

Season’s greetings with crafts galore

It’s all about wishes, crafts and unique art displays at Sentosa PLAYcation! We couldn’t resist posing for a snapshot with these amazing life-sized art displays made out of eco-friendly materials.

You can even make and take home your own rocking horse or merlion with you. Simply grab a set of pre-fab cardboard punch-out boards at $15 – $20 to get started.

You may also want to check out the above activities with the kids from 2.30pm to 9pm (Sunday to Thursday) and 2.30pm to 9.30pm (Friday and Saturday):

Season of well wishes


Look out for tinkling wind chimes ringing in festive cheer around Imbiah Station. While we were there, we wrote our wishes for the New Year on colourful stickers and paste them on the Sentosa Word Block. The colourful sticker wishes will eventually transform the word block into a vibrant graffiti art piece – a beautiful sight for the festive season! You can also ‘Send A Wish’ to your loved ones online through the Wishes at Sentosa PLAYcation App.

Christmas Tree Art Display

Temasek Polytechnic Christmas Trees 2 (s)

To celebrate the season of giving, the students of Temasek Polytechnic have specially created 10 Christmas trees which are on display at the Sentosa Boardwalk. These Christmas trees have been ‘adopted’ by Sentosa’s island partners and all proceeds from the sponsorship will go to charity. Be sure to look out for these special trees at the Sentosa Boardwalk from now until 1 January 2014.
