USA Today had an article recently on Singapore first casino – on Sentosa Island.

Resorts World Sentosa, built by Malaysia's Genting Bhd for 6.6 billion Singapore dollars ($5 billion), opened 1,340 rooms in four hotels, including a Hard Rock hotel and a property designed by architect Michael Graves. Its 7,300-seat ballroom, one of Asia's largest, will host its first event at the end of this month.

Singapore has relaxed considerably since I lived there in the 1990's. I can't imagine a casino back them. But now Singapore wants to become Macau, I guess.

Sentosa Island is a little known Singapore secret. It has beautiful beach, a sea park, a dolphin lagoon, a variety of accommodations, a historic fort, a number of rides, and plenty of good dinning experiences.
