Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to discuss the Integrated Resorts (IRs) launched in 2010 which has created a cutting-edge for Singapore tourism industry. This tourism initiative was a great success considering that it tackled the problem of declining in international tourists visiting Singapore since 2009. The two IRs – Marina Bay Sands (MBS) and Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) appears to have enhanced Singapore's appeal as an attractive tourism destination with successive record high tourist arrivals and boosted higher tourism receipt and also created more employment opportunities in the service sector. This paper attempts to stimulate researchers to address Singapore's ability to achieve destination competitiveness by exploring three key areas – tourism development planning, comparing Singapore relative to other destinations, and also the local residents' perceptions and attitudes of the IRs.
