Take a stroll to Sentosa island

Sentosa is now just a stroll away from VivoCity, with the opening of the Sentosa boardwalk.

And travelling to the island on foot could now be a more fun experience.

This S$70 million boardwalk is lined with themed gardens, shops and eateries.

It is convenient for the elderly and handicapped too.

There are travellators and a covered walkway for rainy days.

To encourage more people to walk to Sentosa, the entrance fee to the island for those who enter on foot will only be S$1.

Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean was on site to launch the new walkway.

“The boardwalk is a wonderful way of connecting Singapore together with the main island. It allows both Singaporeans and tourists an additional way of getting onto Sentosa to enjoy its delights. But it’s also a place where Singaporeans and tourists can come to enjoy the view, the many facilities here at the boardwalk,” he said.

So far, the boardwalk has been a hit with visitors.

“I think it’s good, another experience, very nice, and it’s sheltered,” said a visitor.

“I like it, very beautiful. The first time I’m here,” said another.

“It’s a lot healthier to actually walk on foot. And I think it also helps to alleviate some of the traffic conditions. As you can see it can get crowded sometimes during the rush hours over here,” said a third visitor.
