This former British trading colony is now an international financial and high-tech hub, surprisingly convivial and with a varied offer of world-class nature parks and museums, an exciting Asiatic multi-cultural blend, unique cuisine, sparkling high-rises and ethnic enclaves.

Albeit being a city of mostly ethnic Chinese, there is also a Chinatown; its name is due to the fact that it seats on a speck of land where the first Chinese immigrants settled when Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore as a trading post back in 1819. Here is the centre of the latest cultural and culinary trends of the city.

Beyond its postmodern high-rises of the business district, one may find iconic colonial buildings like the former General Post Office, a colonial colossus with Doric columns, cornices and coffered ceilings, now transformed into the Fullerton hotel.
