Sentosa Island not recommended by some - Singapore
Sentosa Island not recommended by some Sentosa Island Review

I last visited Sentosa Island about 10 years ago. One Singaporean suggested skipping a visit here. I agree if you are short of time. You might go if you are interested in a beach or want to see a larger Merlion than the one near the Fullerton Hotel and Esplanade.

If you are staying in Singapore for a long time, then consider visiting Sentosa Island.

The causeway is not a tourist attraction

Someone mentioned to see the Woodlands causeway to Malaysia (north part of Singapore to Johor). It's just a flat, short bridge and nothing to see.

It was built more than 70 years ago when Singapore was a colony. Malaysia is proposing to replace it. They initially proposed a curved bridge, but are now proposing a straight bridge.

Some say that the Malaysians are inflating the cost of the bridge and asking Singapore to pay half of the inflated cost. The Singapore government is reportedly studying the available project details because they don't want to waste money on an inflated project.

A few years ago, a second link to Malaysia was built to the west. Most people who use this ride in private cars because I think taxis either need a special permit to use this route or there is some other restriction.
