About Singapore

If there's one city in Asia that you really have to know about, it's Singapore! Known as the 'Tiger City of Southeast Asia,' it's become one, if not the most important city in the region.

Even though a number of cities are on their way to catching up, they're still nowhere near the power and the wealth of Singapore! And this is why so many people visit or even move to the city!

As of this moment, Singapore has a population of 5.850 million people. The city-state is an amalgamation of different cultures, influenced by the neighboring countries and the rest of the world who've settled here. So it's no surprise that the population is as big as it is, even when it's larger than a lot of other capital cities around the world. As a global city at large, many languages are spoken here. Though arguably the main ones are mostly English, Mandarin, Malay, and a little bit of Indian.
