Trip to Sentosa Part 5 - Dragon Trail and Integrated Resort

A bird eye view of mainland Singapore from the top of Sentosa. Not a very pretty sight because of so many constructions going on. This is the future integrated resort where Universal Studio will be located. There will be a casino too. To see how the resort look like when completed, you can view their offical website.

Locals had to pay an entrance fee of $100 to play in the casino while it is free for tourists. I am glad that the entrance fee will stop locals from gambling too much.

For me, I am looking forward to the theme park rather than the casino cause I dont have luck with the one arm bandit (jackpot) or any of the cards Even when I go overseas, I dont gamble at their casino, I rather be spending my time dinning instead and taking photos in the surrounding area.

A short video of the dragon trail that was lcoated behind the merlion statue. You can see the monorail train whizzing past in the background.
This brings the end of my sentosa journey. There's a lot of other attractions but you have to wait for my next trip to Sentosa (not sure

Meanwhile you can visited the website of Sentosa.

This has been a great little series. There is so much to see and do that you couldn't cover it in one post. We have 2 casinos here and they are hurting due to the bad economy. Not enough extra money for gambling anymore.. Michelle

Ha ha ha...we are very alike, Alice. Whenever my friends and I visit the casino in Genting Highlands, the first thing I would do is to look for an empty table, rest my head on the table and dozzzzz off!! I don't have luck in gambling too. So I never try to bet at all. Would rather spend my money on other things, e.g. delicious food or a good book! And I have heard the news on how many losers have to loan money from loan sharks. That really scares me off!

Thanks for all nice comments and visit, glad that you all like the series on my outing. :)

JC, I hope to visit Genting Highlands this year not so much for the gambling but for the cold weather and food...hehehe
