A spectacular holiday in Singapore
Consisting of more than 60 islands the Republic of Singapore is an ultra-modern state with the central hub being the island known as Singapore. It is located in Southeast Asia disconnected from the Peninsular of Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to the north and the Straits of Singapore to the south. It was a British territory for 139 years before gaining independence in 1963, after this it quickly developed and prospered into one of Asia’s chief powerhouse economies. It is a multi-ethnic society of five and a half million peoples consisting mainly of Chinese with sizeable minorities of Malays, Eurasians and Indians. Since gaining independence Singapore has created one of the most competitive economies with the third highest per capita income in the world. To assist this rapidly expanding economy Singapore required more land and it has achieved this by reclaiming over 50 square miles of land from the sea in a little over 50 years.
The city is one of the most exciting destinations to visit in the world with millions of visitors passing through Changi Airport making it one of the busiest in the world. To accommodate this influx of visitors each year Singapore has invested heavily in hotel accommodation to suit all budgets.
