This year’s Lunar New Year falls on 8 February. In the Chinese zodiac, this marks the start of the Year of the Monkey. And at Resorts World Sentosa, we don’t monkey around when it comes to celebrating the new year.
At Universal Studios Singapore, S.E.A. Aquarium, Adventure Cove Waterpark, The Forum, and Festive Walk, you’ll find troops of monkeys, characters in festive gear and special programming. If you’re visiting from now until late February, here are some photo spots you don’t want to miss.
Our biggest Lunar New Year decoration is the gigantic Sun Wu Kong statue at the forum. Also known as the Monkey King, Sun Wu Kong is a popular character in the classic tale Journey to the West.
The total height of our pièce de résistance is about 8m. The Sun Wu Kong statue is about 4.2m high, and is perched on two high platforms, making it an imposing feature at The Forum.
Around the Resort, you will find smaller monkeys. These are Sun Wu Kong’s minions. We heard that there are a total of 24 small monkeys around the Resort.
If you want to spot all of them, they can be found in these locaitons:
- The Forum
- S.E.A. Aquarium entrance
- Adventure Cove Waterpark entrance
- Universal Studios Singapore Lagoon deco
We particularly like this cheeky fellow.

Arches, lanterns and characters in festive gears await guest to the theme park. Be sure to pick up the daily park schedule as you enter, so that you don’t miss the appearance of your favourite characters.
Our characters are ready for the new year with festive outfits.

You’ll find this the peach blossom arch at one end of Festive Walk (nearest the hotels).
