Looking for a weekend getaway destination that won’t break the bank?


We got your back!


Photo credit: Hotels.com


Check out Sentosa Island, an iconic beach and island resort for those seeking a rush of adrenaline or a moment of relaxation under the sun. Filled with thrilling attractions, tropical beaches, seaside bars and fancy restaurants, Sentosa is bound to not disappoint!


Before the glitz and glam we know of as Sentosa today, it was an island off the southern coast of Singapore used as a British military base and then a WWII prisoner-of-war camp.


Following the Japanese occupation, the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board launched a contest and renamed it Sentosa, which means peace and tranquillity in Malay! How cool is that?


Let’s not forget… retail therapy! Immerse yourself into the bustling Vivo City at Harbourfront and get the chance to shop at unique and high-end designer stores. Known for its large selection of dining options, we’d suggest you fill your bellies here after a long day at Sentosa!


With that said, here’s a complete travel guide on the coolest and most exhilarating things to do in these areas that we guarantee will satisfy the thrill-seeker in you!

One of our favourites is the Aburi Mentai Bara Chirashi Don (S$14.90+). Packed full of delicious seafood goodness, the bowl features an array of diced Hokkaido scallops, smooth Norwegian salmon, tuna, homemade Tamago egg, sweet and succulent prawns, two kinds of fish roe – salmon and flying fish, whelk clams, all atop a fluffy bed of sushi rice from Niigata.


For those who have a thing for mushrooms and stronger flavours, you can opt for Truffle Salmon Don (S$10.90+). This is definitely not for you if you prefer tasting the original and sweet flavours of the seafood as it can be slightly overpowering. Hokkaido-Ya uses premium quality ingredients, with their salmon chilled and air-flown from Norway.


Be sure to get a good bite of everything with the crispy tempura crumbs and cucumber for an additional crunch!

The most popular craze since it hit Singapore a few years ago, HaiDiLao has been known for its wide selection of hotpot soup-based and side dishes! More importantly, it has been celebrated for its outstanding customer service, with secret codes and tips surfacing online to get free gifts. Amazing isn’t it?


We would describe HaiDiLao as more of an experiential dining experience serving traditional Sichuan-style hot pot in a modern and trendy dining setting.


Feeling overwhelmed by the many great selections? Fret not, we got your back!


For hotpot soup based, we recommend the OG Authentic Sichuan Mala Hotpot Soup Base. Made from Sichuan red peppercorns, the soup has a strong peppery aroma and is definitely not for beginners. Proceed with caution!


The soup base has been slow-cooked and we recommend including thinly sliced pork, beef and slightly chewier meats such as lamb as it soaks up the soup really well!


For all the non-spicy lovers, HaiDiLao also offers their signature All-New Tomato Hotpot Soup Base. Rich and dense tasting, it has juicy, tangy yet sweet tomatoes. The tomatoes are also generously added to the bottom of the pot!


Now comes the fun part, the Hai Di Lao-styled noodles! Hand-pulled and freshly served in front of you, marvel at the theatrics and skills that go into making the noodles chewy as they are swung and spun in a controlled yet fast manner.


Shabu Shabu, also loosely referred to as thinly sliced meat in Singapore is a must-have essential in hotpots. We strongly recommend trying their Exquisite Fatty Beef Slice and Hai Di Lao-Styled Fatty Beef Slice. The difference between them is that the former is made of chuck steaks from to 1-6 ribs on selected cattle, imported and naturally grain fed for over 100 days. The cut of meat is definitely special, with each cattle only carrying only carries 20 kg of it!
