downtown Singapore by a 1,640ft (500m) causeway and cable car
system. Entertainment ranges from soaking up the sun on the
imported-sand beaches to visiting a variety of entertainment areas.
From a moving walkway one can experience the sea life of The
Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon. The Images of Singapore
Exhibition explores Singapore's history in life-size dioramas. On
the furthest western point of the island lies Fort Siloso from
which Singapore guarded its territory against invading Japanese
forces. Other attractions include the Merlion, the Musical Fountain
and the Sentosa Luge. A distinctive landmark is the Carlsberg Sky
