About Singapore


Even though it is geographically small, Singapore is one of the most developed countries in Southeast Asia. The city is a multi-religious, multicultural and multilingual mix, which offers a unique ethnic tapestry to visitors. Singapore has 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. In addition, Singapore offers great shopping, delectable cuisine and also not forgetting its two Integrated Resorts (IRs).


Located at the Southern tip of Malaysia, Singapore's excellent infrastructure enables both business and leisure travellers to enjoy
its many sites and attractions in a safe, clean and green environment. The award winning Changi Airport connects locals and tourists to major cities around the world. The train and subway systems are clean, fast and efficient. In addition, its state-of-the-art cruise terminal has established Singapore as one of the premier cruising centers of South East Asia and an exciting port of call on any Asian cruise itinerary.
