Singapore

Singapore's mishmash of cultures is evident in its diverse array of attractions. For such a tiny city-state, bigger and bolder real estate projects are constantly in development. Its biggest draw, however, is its unique mix of cultures, ethnicities and cuisines that shaped Singapore's history. A place that embraces the new but preserves the old, Singapore is a truly modern city.
