    The toilet no queue leh. Initially when i saw the queue at Imbiah Station, i thought i was the toilet, but instead it's the queue to the station entry!

    I guess this is a matter of supply and demand la. Cheap entry to Sentosa with a fabulous Flowers show.

    All other attractions are much more expensive and less accessible by MRT/monorail. Like the JBP, Zoo, Night Safari etc.

    Even as a local, I find the entrance fee somewhat costly. So, we can understand that all the guess workers would flock to Sentosa.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    I get to go in for free. Just pay $19.50 for a 1 year Islander membership card.

    Went in by car today...was through the ticket booth at the bridge in less than 3 minutes.

    The only catch is you must go in early. I reached the Beach Carpark at around 10am, which was already half filled.

    By the time I left the carpark at 1pm, the traffic streaming into Sentosa was super crazy!

    So the catch is...go early if you can. Otherwise, can forget it.

    yups, I'm always in by 10am every year. Have never missed a one yet. Last year's one was the worst while the first was the best. I hope this year would be better

    go early to avoid the crowd then
    We went very early today
    Shot most of the things already before the crowd came pouring in
    We saw a HUGE crowd when we returned to Vivo via Monorail
