Sentosa sux

Well, there's this island called Sentosa Island in Singapore - as fraud a tourist spot as there can be.

The cable-car ride was awesome, and Fort Siloso was also good. The underwater tour was a huge disappointment. Why anyone would pay money to watch fish is beyond me? But again, I probably got irritated because of some brochures that had raised my expectations. There was a dolphin show - well, it was interesting but I couldnt think of the exploitation of the dolphins. Overall, it was nothing like what I would have expected from a must-see tourist spot at Singapore.

On the cable car ride back, I was left wonderin of the amazing opportunities for tourism India has. If Singapore with such pathetic tourist spots can attract so many tourists, India shouldnt find it too difficult. The one thing we need to do is to create and sell experiences rather than selling individual tourist attractions. Singapore seems to have excelled in that aspect.

Anyways, if you ever happen to go to Singapore, do visit Sentosa Island - but dont expect nething great
