With the launch of Jewel Changi Airport and plans to rejuvenate Orchard Road, some observers recently have pointed to the lack of effort to transform Sentosa. The Executive Chairman of City Developments Limited raised eyebrows recently with his suggestion that Sentosa could be repositioned and transformed into the new Bali.
While 87% of Singaporeans agree Sentosa needs an upgrade, only 30% agree with the “new Bali” idea.
YKA survey findings reveal that many Singaporeans continue to visit Sentosa and feel it has things to offer tourists and partygoers, in particular. But many feel it still lacks interesting options for food lovers (57%), nature lovers (44%) and thrill-seekers (38%).
