Sentosa is Singapore’s lifestyle resort destination that now offers over 200 attractions, hotels, food and beverage options and retail outlets, alongside rainforests, golden sandy beaches, world-renowned golf courses, luxury residences and even a deep-water yachting marina. The island’s offerings have been enriched and deepened by the opening of Singapore’s first integrated resort, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), which is home to South East Asia’s first Universal Studios theme park and the world’s largest aquarium, the SEA Aquarium.

The Sentosa Express monorail system delivered by Hitachi, Ltd. was constructed to provide better access to the island. Its double-track line is 2.1 km in length, with three stations on Sentosa and a terminal station located within a shopping mall on mainland Singapore, and conveniently connects to the mass rapid transit system.

In addition, the unique designs of the cars and attractive pop colours of each train set have created an iconic and popular mode of travel into and out of Sentosa for guests from around the world.
