Welcome the Year of the Horse at Sentosa

Chinese New Year is a time for getting together with family. But after you're done with the reunion dinners and visiting, why not spend the day off with the family?

Celebrate the Lunar new year at Sentosa, where you can witness live aerial acts and meet the 12 animals of the Zodiac in person, along with special festive promotions on ticket prices. It will be loads of fun for the family at the Merlion and surrounding areas. Good luck and good fortune are sure to follow you wherever you go.

Here are some highlight from what you can expect during Chinese New Year on the island.
