With a huge investment capital of 4.4 billion USD, the Genting Group in Singapore has launched a Resort World Sentosa – a complex entertainment on Sentosa island in early 2010.
With 24 great scenes according to the 7 world’s famous movie themes, Universal Studios Singapore is really an attractive place. It is a miniature world with fairies for both children and adults.
