The venue where Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un met for a historic meeting is a resort island with luxury hotels, a casino, manmade beaches and a Universal Studios theme park.

Sentosa Island, where the two leaders met today, is located off the southern coast of Singapore and is surrounded by 30 acres of lush grounds and gardens. While its contemporary name means ‘peace and tranquillity’, this island served as a Japanese prisoner of war camp for British and Australian servicemen after allied forces surrendered to Japan in 1942.
