Singapore Has Plenty to Offer

Aug 18, 2007
If there is one word that best captures Singapore, it is unique. A dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture here. Brimming with unbridled energy, this little dynamo in Southeast Asia embodies the finest of both East and West

Singapore may be small, but packs in quite a punch. Only about 655 square kilometres in area, it is one of the most densely populated cities in the world, with about 6430 people per square kilometre. Although it is one of the 20 smallest countries in the world, its economy is a world leader, and has the worlds busiest port in terms of tonnage handled.

Driving in Singapore is a breeze. Navigating around the island is easy as there are well marked road signs which are all in English

Ever since Sir Stamford Raffles claimed the island of Singapore for the East India Company in 1819, English has had a place in Singapore. Since Singapore became an independent Republic in 1965, the use of English has increased still further, and since 1987 all Singaporean children have their education through the medium of English. For many Singaporeans, English is the main language. Many families speak English at home and it is one of the first languages learnt by about half of the current pre school children.

Nightlife is great and shopping is great.

Singapore has plenty to offer. An area that consists of one main island and several smaller islands and a population of just over 4 million. Impressive skyscrapers, gleaming malls contract with traditional Chinatown and Little India. A dynamic urban environment with entertainment, dining and energy. Modern well organized museums attractions and shopping provide plenty of action.

Singaporeans blend together in a sea of ethnic diversity, with Malays and Chinese, Tamils and Arabs, Indonesians and Thais, living in relative peace beside each other.

Singapore is warm and humid all year. The temperature rarely drops far below 70F. While Singapore has a wet season Nov to Jan and a dry season May to July, the cities rain is relatively steady and there is not a great difference between the wet and dry times of year. With any trip to the tropics you will want to bring sun screen and insect repellent. There are few major health risks in Singapore itself therefore the city keeps a close watch on mosquitoes and diseases.
