Just minutes away from the busy Imbiah Lookout Point, you'll find the Sentosa Nature Discovery gallery. Transformed from a former Sentosa monorail station, here's where you can learn all about the 8 different types of habitats and over 30 of Sentosa's heritage trees and flowers. Check out the various interactive exhibits, displays and learn something about the island's unique flora and fauna!
After you've learnt all about Sentosa's lush rainforest, it's time to take a walk at the Imbiah Trails to experience it for yourself. A nature trail in Sentosa? We kid you not! Take this time to spot some insect-eating plants, stunning butterflies and migratory birds. Some birds you can expect to see are the Oriental Magpie Robin and wild white cockatoos. Doesn't this sound like a perfect activity to do with your kids?

Fort Siloso Skywalk
Besides the Sentosa Nature Discovery, another way to soak in the stunning greenery of Sentosa is to go on the Fort Siloso Skywalk! Take a scenic stroll along this treetop walk which is 11-storeys high and 181-metres long ?
From the skywalk, you'd also be able to see the panoramic view of Sentosa's lush forest, amazing beaches as well as landmarks in mainland Singapore like Reflections at Keppel Bay!
To get here, you can either walk from the Imbiah Trails or take the Sentosa beach shuttle to Siloso Point Station. There's a lift that brings you up the skywalk but for a little challenge, why not climb up the stairs instead? Once you've reached the top, you can conquer your fear of heights by standing on this glass floor! Needless to say, the Fort Siloso Skywalk is a great place to spend the outdoors with your kids or your significant other ?
So if you're planning to visit Sentosa soon, why not squeeze in some time to explore its awesome nature attractions too? What's more, both the Sentosa Nature Discovery and Fort Siloso Skywalk are free to enter and you'd get to learn something new about Sentosa too ?
