Situated on an island just off of the southern tip of Malaysia, Singapore is renowned as being one of the most organised, efficient and wealthiest countries on the planet.


There is an extremely high standard of living and an extremely attractive skyline running along the shores edge. These apartments are very much the haunt of the rich and famous and change hands for huge amounts of money. Singapore is well known for its shopping and there are claimed to be more than 1000 shopping centres selling a huge range of high quality items.


Despite the fact that there has been heavy development on Singapore the past 30 years or so, the government work hard to keep a balance between industrial development and urban parkland and therefore the entire island is surrounded by beautiful open spaces. Although Singapore operates as a regulated society there is a great diversity of religions, lifestyles and cultures. The fine reputation of Singapore is extremely well earned and visitors will marvel at this clean and modern city.


Some of the more interesting areas of the city to visit are the ethnic areas such as Chinatown, Little India, the Colonial District and Arab Street . It is also worth noting that south of the city there are numerous islands including Sentosa, which, due to its beauty is probably the most visited.
