A bustling cosmopolitan city, Singapore is a cultural melting pot. It features a charming mix of modern architecture, heritage buildings and the grandiose splendour of colonial Singapore.
Depending on your preferences, the fact that Singapore is clean, modern and unlike most cities in Southeast Asia can either work in its favour, or to its detriment. This tiny Republic on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula is only 647.5 square kilometres, but inhabits a population of nearly 5.5 million, of which approximately 40% is made up of foreigners.
