Singapore

Singapore – Officially the Republic of Singapore, is a modern city-state and island country in Southeast Asia. It lies off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula and is 137 kilometres (85 mi) north of the equator. The country’s territory consists of the diamond-shaped main island, commonly referred to as Singapore Island in English and Pulau Ujong in Malay, and more than 60 significantly smaller islets. Singapore is separated from Peninsular Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to the north, and from Indonesia’s Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to the south. The country is highly urbanised, and little of the original vegetation remains. The country’s territory has consistently expanded through land reclamation.

The names of Singapore include both historical designations and contemporary names and nicknames in various languages spoken on the island.

The English language name Singapore comes from the Malay Singapura, which is derived from Sanskrit. Singa comes from the Sanskrit word siṃha, which means “lion”, and pura means “town” in Sanskrit and is a common suffix in many Indian place names. The Sanskrit origin is due to the regional influence of Chola kings of India, who spoke Tamil, but preferred to use Sanskrit for royal and religious titles.

City Hall

The City Hall in Singapore is a national monument gazetted on 14 February 1992. It can be found in front of historical Padang and adjacent to the Supreme Court of Singapore, it was designed and built by the architects of the municipal government, A. Gordans and F. D. Meadows from 1926 to 1929. A flight of stairs takes visitors from the Corinthian colonnade to the main building. The building was constructed to replace several houses designed by architect G.D. Coleman. It was first known as Municipal Building until 1951 when Singapore was granted city status by King George VI.

Raffles Place

Raffles Place is a geographical location in Singapore, south of the mouth of the Singapore River. Located in the Downtown Core and the Central Area, it features some of the tallest buildings and landmarks of the country.

Culture

Singapore is a mix of Chinese, Malaysian and Indian influences. Toddlers are taught to be bilingual and by the time they reach adulthood, usually know 3-4 languages. Singaporeans are known to be hardworking yet fun-loving at the same time. Here, luxury brands are considered fashion staples and taking public transportation is the norm. Daily conversations—English or otherwise—are characteristically sprinkled with the expression “Lah.”

Food

Cheap and flavourful, hawker food or street food is a must-try to get that authentic Singapore culinary experience. Start with the kaya toast with soft-boiled eggs for breakfast. For lunch and dinner, you cannot go wrong with salted-egg crabs, curry laksa, Hainanese chicken rice or char kway teow. Wash it all down with the iconic Tiger Beer, Singapore’s official beer.
