​Often referred to as the Lion City, Singapore is a leading global city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. Historically recognized as an Asian trading post, Singapore has evolved into a global commerce, financial, and transportation hub. It ranks 1st in Asia, and 9th globally, on education, healthcare, life expectancy, quality of life, personal safety, and housing. The city’s core principles are meritocracy, multiculturalism, and secularism — making it a vibrant travel destination with a rich cultural atmosphere. Rated by Forbes to be the world’s 4th most influential city, and by Lonely Planet as the best world destination, Singapore is undoubtedly an excellent opportunity for cultural Discovery. 


Singapore is an unique blend of Western modernity and Asian culture. For first-time visitors to Singapore, it’s a great introduction to living in Asia. While Singapore may be a little pricey, the public infrastructure makes it an extremely livable city. For example, Singapore has an excellent public transportation system, which makes it easy to get around without a car. In regards to climate, Singapore is 137 miles north of the equator, bringing all the hot and humid weather that its location implies. Beaches and warm weather activities are frequented by the locals and international visitors.


Singaporean cuisine aligns with the city’s multicultural atmosphere, bringing to the table endless fusion dishes and ethnically original dishes, as well. This makes Singapore an excellent location for tasting foods from all around the world and embracing its internationally minded spirit. Culinary influences include the cuisines of the native Malays and the largest ethnic group, the Chinese, as well as Indonesian, Indian, Peranakan, and Western cuisines. With consideration of how diverse the food culture is in Singapore, it is difficult to point to signature dishes embraced solely by the people of Singapore. 


Singapore has a diverse music culture that ranges from rock and pop to folk and classical. Like everything else in Singapore, the music scene is just as diverse as its food and language.  Since the Chinese people form the largest ethnic group in Singapore, they heavily influence the music culture in Singapore. This eclectic combination of music has produced many well known artists, such as Stefanie Sun and JJ Lin. The city’s international attraction also regularly hosts large concerts with world famous musicians.


Most people speak English, but the island has four official languages: English, Chinese, Malay (Bahasa), and Tamil. This interesting melting pot of languages has produced its own brand of language, known locally as Singlish
