About Singapore

.

Translated into the original Malay, Singapore means ‘Lion City’. It presents itself as a refined Asian metropolis: along Beach Road, you’ll find buildings of colonial grandeur, where grey-haired expats patronise the bars, sipping Singapore Slings. But in the Geylang district, Singapore’s mask of serenity slips. The city’s street cleaners don’t venture to this district too often, and its narrow alleys struggle to contain an overflow of people and impromptu markets.

Singapore’s Bukit Nature Reserve contains a wider variety of trees than does the whole of North America.

The atmosphere is exhilarating – if you’re feeling adventurous, try frogs' legs porridge, a delicacy. Or visit the floating restaurants at Clarke Quay, festively lit up at night. Your taste buds will be set ablaze by the fiery chilli crab, a local speciality. Beneath its calm exterior, Singapore is a city that roars.

Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world. The United States is about 15,000 times bigger.
