The City-State
Located in southeast Asia, Singapore is an island that encompasses only 270 square miles with 4.6 million residents. Without any natural resources of its own, Singapore’s resource is the people. Singapore represents a merge of Malaysian, Chinese, Indian and Euro-Asian cultures, creating a diverse land with many choices for food and entertainment. With year-round weather between 70 and 90 degrees, Singapore has a lot to offer. You may enjoy world-class shopping on Orchard Road, a trip up in the Singapore Flyer – the world’s largest observation wheel – or a day at Sentosa Island, boasting beaches and the Underwater World Oceanarium.
