Singapore, Singapore

Singapore (Chinese: 新加坡 , Malay: Singapura, Tamil: சிங்கப்பூர) is an island-state in Southeast Asia, connected by bridges to Malaysia. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since Independence it has become one of the world's most prosperous countries, sporting the world's busiest port. Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences and a lush tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a happening, vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.
