Based on an online vote that was open to both leisure industry professionals and the general pubic throughout Asia, Sentosa beat a range of contenders including Hong Kong Disneyland, China’s Chimelong Water Park and Korea’s Lotte World to win the award.

Commenting on the award, Jason Ong, area director for the Singapore Tourism Board, said: "Singapore has become synonymous with top-quality and this ward underlines out commitment to deliver world class experiences to each of our visitors.

"This is a fantastic achievement for everyone associated with Sentosa and is recognition from both the leisure industry and public that Sentosa is Asia’s favourite playground."
