If you think attractions on Sentosa are a tad expensive, you will be glad to know that not everything on the resort island comes with a price tag.

Take the Animal & Bird Encounters attraction, for example. It offers free shows at the amphitheatre on Sentosa's Palawan Beach. Get up close and personal with furry or feathered creatures, and enjoy performances that will educate audiences about animals such as snakes, monkeys and parrots.

Each 20-minute show is based on a theme, and provides plenty of photo opportunities with the animals and their trainers. If nothing else, the performances provide welcome breaks for adults while their kids are entertained by the animals' antics.

You can take the tram to get to the amphitheatre on Palawan Beach. It's a short walk from the Beach station.

  • Palawan Beach is the most family-friendly beach on sentosa. Besides the free Animal & Bird Encounter show, crossing the suspension bridge that links the beach to the southernmost point of continental asia is also a hit with my boys. On weekends and public holidays, Captain Palawan (Palawan Beach's mascot) can also be spotted looking for his lost treasure!
  • There is a food court on Palawan Beach that is friendlier on the wallet. No compromise on the quality of the food despite the price... Local eats are so yummy, it's difficult to serve it badly :)~~
