Sentosa - The Island of Surprises
Apart from the sun and sand, Sentosa also houses SIngapore’s only fully-restored military fort, Fort Siloso. In the late 19th century. During that time, Singapore had become an important trading port for the British, so it was imperative that the island was protected from sea invasion. However, during World War II, Japanese troops invaded Singapore by land from north Malaya. This led the British to turn Fort Siloso’s guns towards the mainland instead to help support the ground forces defending Singapore from the invasion.
Today, more than 30 carefully-conserve heritage trees and buildings can be found in at this sunny side of SIngapore.
