About Singapore


Many people marvel at the beauty of Singapore and her progressiveness. Most impressive to note is that she was formerly just a humble fishing village, inhabited by an indigenous settlement. 2019 is also the 200th anniversary when Singapore was founded by Sir Stamford Raffles from the British East India Company. Although Singapore was inhabited prior to Sir Stamford Raffles’ arrival many historians recognise that the founding was the start of the rise of Singapore as a port of commerce and growth.

Fast forward to today. Singapore is a bustling cosmopolitan city with high-rise buildings and landscape gardens. We are home to a bustling Central Business District, the famed shopping belt Orchard Road, a vibrant arts and entertainment scene, lively dining and drinking spots, and various must-see attractions. We are inspired by our rich culture and heritage, yet geared for the future.
