A Merlion's Growth

I do get my at least once a year trip to Singapore and in terms of infrastructure, it doesn't fail to offer something new each time I come back. New structures, new attractions and new means of pulling tourist back in this red dot state.

2010 had seen the two casinos rise to pull droves of gambling tourists hopping in and out of the country. They have one shaped like a deck of cards (Sands) and another one in Sentosa (Resort World), They also have a new Universal Studio in Sentosa (which I was not able to visit since tickets were sold out).

For a tiny country, Singapore has diversified its market for tourism, now with Casinos and new theme parks and the Singapore Flyer is just above a year old. The Merlion country is growing.
