Sentosa Island is home to Underwater World (that we visited earlier), Butterfly Park, a beautiful home to 1500 butterflies and also Orchid Garden, where you can dine in a restaurant with a view of a pond surrounded by exotic flowers. To get to the Underwater World we had to pass the Dragon Trail, a gorgeous walk through lush tropical jungles. In the evening we were enjoying a Musical Fountain, a 122-feet fountain featuring fiery flames, lasers and music.
