The Area: Singapore
Nicknamed “the tiger of Asia” due to the supersonic rate of its growth, the city-state of Singapore is truly a one-of-a-kind place. Located on 63 islands bordering the southernmost part of Malay Peninsula, Singapore transformed itself from the former British colony into a thriving, fully-fledged state within mere 20 years of gaining independence from the British and then from Malaysia.
Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population. In circa-1820 Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha’s Tooth Relic Temple, Little India offers colourful souvenirs and Arab Street is lined with fabric shops.
Singapore is also commonly known as a “Garden City” or a “City in a Garden” because there are trees planted everywhere, making it look like a garden. The 101-hectare super park, popularly known as Gardens by the Bay offers amazing views of the Marina Bay skyline. When you’re in the vicinity of the Merlion Park and One Fullerton, it’s hard to miss out on the iconic symbol, regarded as the pride of Singapore. Travellers can hop on to the world’s largest observation wheel and enjoy breathtaking 360° views, as visitors spot iconic and historical landmarks along the Singapore River. The Singapore Zoo boasts of its free-ranging habitat, where animals roam freely in their natural surroundings.
