Singapore Travel Guide

One of the great success stories of the late twentieth century, Singapore transformed itself from an impoverished island nation to one of the leading financial centres of the world. Singapore is one of three city states in the world and has a diverse population of five million people. Many residents of Singapore are descended from Malays, Chinese, Arabs and Indians. There is also a substantial expatriate community making Singapore one of the most ethnically diversified cities in the world.  

The multicultural nature of this city has made Singapore a destination for dining, art, and cultural attractions. The city is famous for its performing arts and these shows can be seen at places such as the Singapore Repertory Theatre and the Espalande Theatre of the Bay. The Singapore Art Museum and Asian Civilisations Museums showcases the many distinct artistic and cultural artefacts of the region. The central art district and the Chinatown arts belt are examples of areas where visitors can purchase artwork in Singapore.

Singapore is known as one of the most environmentally friendly cities in the world. Most of the city is serviced by Mass Rapid Transit and there are several nature preserves in the city including the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and the Bukit Timah Hill Nature Preserve. Visitors to the Singapore Zoo are able to go on a Night Safari. This is a special feature of the Zoo that allows visitors to observe nocturnal creatures from Asia, Africa and South America unobstructed at night.
