Talk:Singapore/Sentosa

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Mr. 202.172.230.50, if you know of some good quality and reasonably prices places to eat on Sentosa, please do tell us about them -- all the ones I've tried were in the overpriced & tasteless category. Jpatokal 11:59, 25 May 2004 (EDT)

Star[edit]

An anon user misplaced the star tag and I came along and reverted the change. Apparently Mr./Mrs. Anon believes this article to be of star quality. Anyone agree with Mr./Mrs. Anon? I don't really care - that's why I'm leaving it up to you. The only reason I would've bothered to bring this up is apparently the user doesn't know where a star tag goes in the first place so I'm a little hesitant in trusting his/her judgement.

Thanks! - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 13:42, 25 May 2006 (EDT)

See Wikitravel:Star nominations - the idea still seems to be kind of in the discussion stage, but this article might be a good test case. -- Ryan 13:48, 25 May 2006 (EDT)

Carlsberg Sky Tower[edit]

Copied from article that has been redirected to Singapore/Sentosa. This seems overly detailed for a travelguide (ie facts about management), but I think some of it would be useful/interesting to include. Pasted for data-mining. Majnoona 00:33, 19 July 2006 (EDT)
