Sentosa SandStation ending soon!
If you still want to visit the sand art exhibition at Sentosa, you better be quick, since it is in it’s last days.
The sand creations are placed under a tent on Siloso Beach.
Acces is free.
You can download an app -MixGo- before you leave home, which promises to add augmented reality to your experience at Sentosa SandStation.
I tried to activate the app on location but unfortunately it got stuck at 99% download and did not want to complete, so I was not able to use it. Maybe you will succeed. Curious to know what the effects are…
Avoid peak hours
It can get very crowded, which seriously limits the fun, because it makes it hard to get unobstructed views of the sand art.
So if you are able to plan your visit during less popular hours then I would highly recommend that.
International sand artists
The sand art at SentosaSandStation is made by artists from all over the globe.
There is even a contribution by a Dutch woman.
The quality of the pictures I took is not very good, since bright daylight and strong sunlight made it difficult to get the settings on the camera right.
Add to that a rushy feeling because of the crowds and everyone trying to pose in front of the art and you get a quick snap here and a fast shot there situation. Not always leading to the best pictures.
Local expressions and slang used in Singapore
At least half of the creations depict well known local expressions.
I thought it was really fun to learn a bit of local expressions and culture through some of the sand art at SentosaSandStation.
