Located at the Siloso Beach (just next to the Beach Station), the Go Green After Dark starts late at night. Good kind of timing for it right?

2 of the bloggers, Christina and Vanessa dared to put on the make up while waiting for the start of the tour.

She was riding behind me at some parts of the trail, and she kinda freak me out when I turned back! (: Guess the make-up is successful!
Before venturing into the quest, the bloggers are trained to ride on the Segway PT® . The orientation allows the user to be more familiar with the Segway PT®.

We went down to the Siloso beach carpark (which is now a empty ground) just downstairs to venture into the journey of the western part of Sentosa.

Down the locked dungeon, it lies pieces of history. Our tour guide put on special makeup, making him look extra creepy under the moonlight.

The guide warn us, that if we are to hear anyone calling your name on the way, don’t look back.
The tour takes us on steep, quiet paths in Sentosa. They are the frequently unexplored parts that we miss out during our visits to Sentosa.
The fort, the underground paths, the old monorail track…
I shall leave the rest to be explored. Mission completed when we have move back to our starting point!
All participants presented with a certificate in a specially designed folder!
