Sentosa Island was once called Balakang Mati, which means “behind the dead” in Malay. One of the theories about the origins of this name speaks of a mysterious disease that claimed the lives of nearly all the original settlers. The British used the island as a military base until 1967. Today, Sentosa, which means “peace” in Malay, has been transformed into a recreational playground with attractions that include museums, historical sights, theme parks, nature trails, and sporting activities. All the sights can be reached by the island’s monorail, beach trams, or internal bus network. Sentosa has two major hotels as well as chalets.
