About Singapore

Today's Singapore is a true melting pot, home to people of Chinese, Malay and Indian descent, with a significant population of non-citizen residents (temporary workers and ex-pats) from countries as diverse as Korea, Japan, the UK, the US, the Philippines, Bangladesh and Indonesia. There's a vibrant conglomeration of cultures here, with colorful ethnic pockets (remnants of Raffles' segregated urban plan) such as Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street. Singaporeans enjoy a high standard of living, with a plethora of cultural and social advantages. The country is known for the quality, diversity and abundance of its dining options indeed, Singaporeans embrace the offerings of street vendors' traditional Asian fare as well as upscale restaurants serving refined European cuisine. Nightlife is rapidly becoming world-class, with numerous establishments grouped along the river at Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. And for its size, Singapore has an amazing number of attractions, including a wide variety of museums, zoos, the world's largest ferris wheel, and even an indoor ski resort. It's one of Asia's leading financial capitals, but it's also becoming an exciting tourist destination which offers one of the world's of only two Grand Prix night races and two Integrated Resorts opening in 2010.
Singapore Factoid
When it was originally settled by the British in the early 1800s, Singapore was home to a few hundred wild tigers. According to legend, the very last one was shot and killed at the Raffles Hotel's Bar and Billiard Room in 1902. But, despite the tale's appeal, the fact of the matter is that the last tiger wasn't killed until much later. Accounts differ, but most agree that the poor beast was killed in 1924 at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve or in the jungle at Choa Chu Kang in 1932.
