Five hundred metres off the south coast of Singapore is Sentosa Island , the city’s unfailingly popular resort getaway. The Brits turned the island into a military fortress in the late 1800s. In 1967 it was returned to the Singaporean government, who developed it into a holiday resort. These days, a concerted effort to transform the island from tacky second-rate to tacky world-class is under way. The entire northern front is home to a Universal Studios Theme Park and a casino.
