About

Ancient history and settlement.

The city of Singapore prides itself on being a lush green haven amidst sky-high skyscrapers. The ‘Garden City’ or ‘Lion City’ is environment-friendly and boasts a world-class infrastructure at the same time. All you need to do is get on a bus, and you will find yourself in the beautiful Botanical Gardens or the crowded Chinatown. Singapore is an amazing paradise for shopaholics and foodies. The culturally and racially diverse population of the city has contributed to its markets and restaurants, featuring locally-made handicrafts to high-end electronics and serving authentic as well as ‘hybrid’ delicacies.
