Google reviews Sentosa 2017: Adventure Cove Waterpark is a favorite but the lines can be a little long for the rides. The Malaysian Street Food hall is the best for food with a great variety and reasonable pricing. tip; check out some website where they sell bundle tickets to the attractions here & around the Sentosa Island. Do note it's recommended to spend one full day at Universal Studio Singapore. A lot of Chinese tourist groups.
