I have the honour to participate in the development of the Resorts World at Sentosa, one of the 2 integrated resorts of Singapore.
I took a cab from Harbour Front to the site this afternoon. When the cab turned into the road beside the Vivo City to Sentosa, I said to myself that next time I could walk to the project site. When I reached the project site, I was told that nobody is supposed to walk in that road. A fine of S$5000 will be imposed on anyone who does so.
The project now is in full swing with all sorts of activities going with full force. The development is scheduled to complete by early 2010.
The Resorts World at Sentosa will definitely inject new life into the island which has been developed since 1970.
One has to admire the determination of Singapore government to develop the 2 integrated resorts i.e. Resorts World at Sentosa and Marina Bay Sands because it created much controversy among the Singaporean due to the casino component in the development. The government know that the regional competition in tourism industry like Genting Highland, Macau is too keen to be ignored.
