During my recent visit to Singapore, I was totally impressed by the vast amount of museums present in this tiny island state. The top notch facilities, the friendly staff and the wide array of interactive exhibits were quite extensive in scope. So I figure even though entrance fees were exorbitant they are truly worth every single cent.

I found this interesting article which describes Singapore's meteoric rise as a post colonial City of Culture and Performance. I totally agree with its contents having had first hand insights in the development of the city. In the same breath, with the recent successful opening of the Resorts World Sentosa, it will further boost the image of the city as a premier destination. Casinos are said to be one of the safest places to visit. The presence of security officers ensures the protection and general well being of its well heeled clientele. Hopefully next time I visit, I can drop by Sentosa to get a glimpse of the casino which I heard has been getting a steady stream of visitors.
