Introduction to Singapore

Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, is an island country located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Though physically small, Singapore is an economic giant. It has been Southeast Asia's most modern city for over a century. Its unique ethnic tapestry affords visitors a wide array of sightseeing and culinary opportunities from which to choose. A full calendar of traditional festivals and holidays celebrated throughout the year adds to its cultural appeal. The country includes the island of Singapore and 63 smaller islands. Because of its efficient and determined government, Singapore has become a flourishing country that excels in trade and tourism and is a model to developing nations.
