Singapore – The Lion City

Over 10 million people travel there a year

Officially known as the Republic of Singapore, it is a city-state island country located off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula in Southeast Asia. To the north, the Straits of Johor separate Singapore from the rest of Malaysia. The Singapore Strait separates the island from Indonesia's Riau Islands to the south.

Singapore is the fourth leading financial centre in the world playing a key role in international trade and finance. The port of Singapore is one of the five busiest ports in the world.

Singapore derives its name from “Singapura” its Malay name meaning “Lion City”. Ironically, studies have shown that lions probably never lived on the island, so the beast seen by Sang Nila Utama, the ancient founder of Singapore, who have the city its name, was most likely a tiger.

Singapore is known for its racial and religious harmony. It plays a crucial part in Singapores success in building a Singaporean identity.

Singapore is a magical place to visit. Over 10 million people travel there a year to taste some of the most unique flavors nature has to offer. The Singapore Food Festival is held every July to celebrate the flavors of Singapores cuisine.

Some of Singapores top attractions include the Singapore Botanical Gardens, Little India, a traveler's dilight, The Kampong Glam market for traditional handicrafts and boutiques that are distinctive of the Malay culture. For the nightlife, the Clarke Quay is the place to be! Located directly in the middle of town, it is a pub-crawlers dream. If you're interested in seeing a play or musical performance of any kind, take a visit to the Esplanade, Singapore's foremost arts venue.
