Fun times await you and your loved ones at Resorts World Sentosa Singapore this Lunar New Year — experience exciting themed entertainment and amazing gastronomic experiences at the island resort.
The Year of the Water Rabbit beckons a brand new (and inquisitive) start. Just like the spirit of the playful hare, it is always a good idea to spend fun and quality times with loved ones especially during the festivities. If you are thinking how and where to spend Chinese New Year this year — especially with the week-long holidays — why not head down to the Lion City for a quick getaway at Resorts World Sentosa Singapore?
We have been very curious, so we hop over to Resorts World Sentosa Singapore to check out what the destination resort has in store for visitors. Bidding goodbye to the Tiger and welcoming the Rabbit, there will be festive moments aplenty and exciting experiences to usher in prosperity, wealth, joy and good luck at its world-famous attractions and restaurants.
From the must-visit Universal Studios Singapore to the enchanting S.E.A. Aquarium — that are both absolute haven for the young and the young at heart — as well as a bevy of eateries like Osia Steak & Seafood Grill and the new Peruvian-Chinese CHIFA!, there’s something for everyone!
It is also the first time since restricted international travels that we are finally able to celebrate Chinese New Year overseas. Fly in or take a four-hour car ride down to Singapore for a change — because why not.
