Sentosa Island  


Sentosa Island sits 500 meters off the south coast of Singapore and is the main island's top getaway destination. The British originally turned the island into a military fortress in the late 19th century and then returned to the Singaporean government in 1967. The fortress' name, Pulau Blakang Mati ("Island of Death Behind"), is a stark contrast to the recreational resort that now occupies its land. Originally developed with hotels, beaches, and theme parks, the island just welcomed its new Resorts World at Sentosa complete with full casino. The resort will also feature a Universal Studios theme park, a Marine Life Park the claims to be the 'world's largest oceanarium', and a hi-tech maritime museum. The island is very busy on weekends with vacationers, student parties, or work colleagues on a team building exercise.
