Where to buy discounted entrance tickets for S.E.A. Aquarium

[Update Jul 2, 2015 Check out RWS’s promos for S.E.A. Aquarium.]

Even though I’ve stayed in Singapore for almost nine years, I didn’t know that it was possible to buy cheap tickets to various attractions. I always thought that I needed to pay full price, and thinking about it makes my miserly heart cold.

Luckily, my friend Lilian showed me where I could get discounted entrance tickets. Lilian who is now back in China (and whose wedding I attended) wanted to visit the South East Asia Aquarium (SEA Aquarium) before leaving.

She brought me to People’s Park Complex in Chinatown. In the basement, there were many travel agencies. One of them advertised discounted tickets for SEA Aquarium and Universal Studio Singapore (USS).

I bought my SEA Aquarium ticket there for S$24 when the original price is S$38. That is a S$14 difference!

I believe the tickets are cheaper because the travel agents buy tickets in bulk for groups. Then they sell some individually.

You really need to buy tickets in advance. When Lilian and I went on a weekday during the school Christmas holidays, the queue at the ticket counter for SEA Aquarium was horrible. We joked that we should have bought more discounted tickets and sell them to the visitors.

You can get them at travel agents. I went to People’s Park Complex.

Take the MRT to Chinatown. Go to Exit D and head to the basement of the building directly in front of the exit (People’s Park Complex).

The agency I went to was Farmosa Holiday Tour (B1-18/19/20). They have a poster outside, saying that they have discounted tickets.

Discounted prices:

SEA tickets for S$24, children ticket for S$17

USS ticket for S$65 children for S$48 [Original price: S$74; S$54 kids]

There are other travel agencies there with signs saying Attraction Tickets. I didn’t go in and ask their prices but you can try it out when you are there.

    Thanks for the info. I read about discounted tickets to SEA Aquarium can be bought from some tour agencies in Chinatown but was worry they might be scam. Glad to know that they are the genuine admission tickets.

    Hi there!

    I’m glad i stumbled on your page [boookmarked]. By the way, may i know the opening hours of the agency? And how would we know if the ticket bought is genuine? Also can you tell if we can buy ticket for the next day or should we use it the same day we bought the ticket? Thanks! and hoping for your reply! :)
