What
Sentosa Island is dubbed as “Asia’s Favorite Playground”. It is located 15 minutes away from the city center and features exciting attractions that make it a wonderful island resort for rest and recreation.

The island served as a fortress in the 19th century and became a military base after the Second World War. These days, Fort Siloso still stands as a military museum that displays old guns and war memorabilia.

Some locals describe the today Sentosa Island as Las Vegas in a forest on the beach. This is an apt description given Sentosa’s choices of fun-filled attractions like casinos, forest adventures, and beach resorts.

Why
Sentosa Island is a huge fun playground filled with innumerable activities. The trip from the mainland to Sentosa is an adventure in itself especially if you go by cable car.

Visitors of all ages are guaranteed to have a grand time at Sentosa Island’s treasures that are sprawled across sandy beaches and verdant rainforests.
