Tiny Island, Big Surprises
Some refer to Singapore as the “little red dot”, but Singapore’s presence in the world today is larger than that moniker. In fact, Singapore is a bustling cosmopolitan city that offers a world-class living environment, with its landscape populated by high-rise buildings and gardens. One interesting facet visitors will discover is a ubiquitous collage of cultures, where people of different ethnicities and beliefs live in harmony. Besides being a global financial hub, it is also a city that never sleeps. There are activities all year round – from the thrilling Formula 1 night race, to a myriad of cultural events, as well as many other exciting events. Never is there a dull moment here. With restaurants, world-class theatre performances, branded boutiques and gourmet shops added to the list, Singapore has it all.
