    Singapore Dollars, although We're chasing up to US dollars soon

    Here is the original est in 2006 :

    "We want to grow the tourism industry in Singapore and in this region. We will invest over S$5 billion (US$3.1 billion) to develop Resorts World at Sentosa into Singapore’s most successful tourist destination. Besides an investment of more than S$1.6 billion (US$1 billion) for Universal Studios Singapore, we are also committing significant resources to develop other outstanding attractions at the resort."

    Here is the update in Dec 07 :

    "To account for the enhancements, RWS has revised its budget from S$5.2 billion to S$5.75 billion. With a further contingency provision of S$250 million the overall budget rises to S$6.0 billion. The revised budget also takes into account improvements made to hotels and resort design for our higher-value guests, transportation and access infrastructure in the Resort, and the rising costs of construction. S$5.75 billion represents a 10 per-cent increase to the original budget of S$5.2 billion. If the further contingency provision is included it would represent a 15% increase."

    Hi folks, another small update.

    a webcast detailing some MICE (meetings, incentives, conventions, exhibitions) facilities on the resort.

    You can see the hulk coaster as well as big bird when they zoomed into the resort model
