What's this machine? It's a machine with a barrier that collects $1 from your EZLink card for entry into Sentosa Island. Took this photo the first time I used it some time ago when the Sentosa Boardwalk opened.
Another popular way of getting into Sentosa Island is by riding the Sentosa Express and that will cost you $3.
Here's a good news! On 10 September 2011, it's Sentosa Day and they are giving free admission on that day!
Here's a press release that might interest you:
