Singapore Sentosa, Peace and Tranquility

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/michaelasanda-1904552-sentosa-peace-tranquility/
  2. 2. Sentosa, which translates to peace and tranquility in Malay, is a popular island resort in Singapore, visited by some five million people a year.
  3. 3. In 1974 the Singapore Cable Car system was built, linking Sentosa to Mount Faber The Singapore Cable Car provides an aerial link from Mount Faber on the main island of Singapore to the resort island of Sentosa across the Keppel Harbour.
  4. 4. The Jewel Box Station at Mount Faber
  5. 5. The Jewel Box Station at Mount Faber
  6. 6. Opened on 15 February 1974, the Singapore Cable Car was the first aerial ropeway system in the world to span a harbour. However, it is not the first aerial ropeway system to span the sea.
  7. 7. The system currently consists of 81 cabins, suspended at least 60 metres (197 ft.) above the sea, and about 61 m (200 ft.) between each cabin (or one cabin per 15 to 21 seconds).
  8. 8. Each cabin can carry a maximum of 6 adult passengers, while the whole system can support 1400 passengers per hour either way.
  9. 9. Travelling at a speed of 4 metres per second (13 fps), it takes about 4 minutes to get from Mount Faber to Jardine Steps, and another 5.5 minutes to continue on to Sentosa.
  10. 10. Including the short interval at Jardine Steps, however, it will take 12 minutes on a continuous ride from Mount Faber to Sentosa.
  11. 11. The island has an area of 5 square kilometres. It lies just half a kilometre (a quarter of a mile) away from the southern coast of the main island of Singapore. It is Singapore's fourth largest island (excluding the main island).
  12. 12. 70% of the island is covered by secondary rainforest, the habitat of monitor lizards, monkeys, peacocks, parrots as well as other native fauna and flora. The island also has 3.2 kilometre stretch of white sand beach.
  13. 13. Through the 1980s and 1990s, a number of pay-to-get-in tourist designations were built on the island, most of which the local people found uninteresting. Consequently, there was a joke that the name Sentosa stood for "So Expensive and Nothing to See Actually “
  14. 14. Underwater World is an oceanarium opened in 1991 and has more than 2,500 marine and fresh- water animals of 250 species from different regions of the world.
  15. 15. The oceanarium is underground and has an 83 metre long travelator that moves visitors along a submerged glass-windowed tunnel from which they can look at an array of marine life.
  16. 16. Images of Singapore Museum is recommended visit for all people visiting the country. Using multimedia displays, pictures and real size models, this museum explains how Singapore became the country that it is now
  17. 17. Inside, the museum features Singapore's history with life-sized wax figures, dioramas and archival materials, presented with the latest exhibition techniques.
  18. 18. The Merlion (Malay: Singa-Laut) is a mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, used as a mascot of Singapore.
  19. 19. Its name combines "mer" meaning the sea and "lion". The fish body represents Singapore's origin as a fishing village when it was called Temasek, which means "sea town" in Javanese. The lion head represents Singapore's original name — Singapura — meaning "lion city" or "kota singa".
  20. 20. The symbol was designed by Fraser Brunner, a member of the Souvenir Committee and curator of the Van Kleef Aquarium, for the logo of the Singapore Tourism Board (STB)
  21. 21. The 37-metre-tall gigantic replica — with Mouth Gallery Viewing Deck on the ninth storey, another viewing gallery on its head and The Merlion Shop — at Sentosa Island
  22. 22. Designed by Yves Pepin, the Songs of the Sea show, started on 26 March 2007, replacing the 25 year-old Magical Sentosa show.
  23. 23. The Malay Kampung by the Sea or more commonly known as a Kelong, is 120 meteres long while the rest of the equipment (water jets, water screens, lasers and projectors) is hidden at the back of the kelong
