Gday India

Leisure destination Sentosa, Singapore’s premier island resort, is targeting 1 million (10 lakh) visitors from India this year as it gears up to add two more attractions — Wings of Time in June and Madame Tussauds in November — this year, top officials said. “Last year, we received 900,000 visitors from India and with the two new attractions, we will exceed 1 million visitors from India. These two attractions will boost tourist inflow,” Steven Chung, Senior Assistant Director, International & Corporate Sales, Sentosa Leisure Management, said.

“Apart from this, we have also given facelifts to some of our existing attractions which will help,” he added.

He said the largest number of foreign tourists visiting Sentosa was from India. “Out of 20 million visitors to Sentosa last year, 11 million were foreigners. We get maximum number of visitors from India and Indians do spend more time at Sentosa as compared to others,” Mr. Chung said. He said an entry into Sentosa would cost between Singapore $30 to S$72 per person depending on the package one would choose. “We have kicked off a marketing campaign in India, our biggest overseas market and we hope to get encouraging response. About 94 per cent of all leisure travellers to Singapore do visit Sentosa,” he added.
