Sentosa, which means ‘peace and tranquillity’ in Malay, is anything but. Once a fishing village, it served as a British military fortress from the 1800s to 1967 when it was known as Pulau Blakang Mati (‘Island of Death from Behind’). In 1968 it began a new lease of life as a holiday resort. 
Some think Sentosa is the bee’s knees among Singapore’s sights; others deem it a Disneyland wannabe. But the best way to tackle the island is to embrace its tackiness along with the decent offerings. There is plenty to see so prepare to spend at least half a day here.
