My 4 years trip around the World ,part 13 SINGAPORE SENTOSA ISLAND

Sentosa Island

Sentosa Island is not called ‘Asia’s Favourite Playground’ for nothing. Sentosa, which means ‘peace and tranquility’ in Malay, is a man-made island located south of the Singapore’s city centre. Visited by millions of people every year, the popular resort is home to a variety of themed attractions, rainforests, stunning beaches, a yacht marina and posh residences. It is hard to believe that before Sentosa became Singapore’s most popular island resort getaway it was a fortress of the British forces in the 19th century. It was only in 1967 that the island was returned to the government and turned it into a holiday resort.

    Hi Jacek, I don’t think Sentosa is a man-made island. But yes, it was used as a British military fortress during WW2 until the surrender to the Japanese. Nice to see gorgeous photos of my country here! Cheers.
