Founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819, Singapore today is the busiest port in the world. On shore, you’ll find gleaming shopping centres, glittering office blocks and a choice of Malaysian, Indian, Indonesian, Chinese and European cuisine at the city’s thousands of restaurants.
Singapore is an island-state in Southeast Asia. Singapore City is by far the largest and most significant island alongside 63 others that make up Singapore state. Located at the mouth of the Singapore River, it is a modern, affluent city and the world's busiest port.
A blend of the ancient and modern can be seen from the gleaming skyscrapers to Chinese and Hindu temples. Combining a lush tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a happening, vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.
