About the Venue
Many people marvel at the beauty of Singapore and its progressiveness. Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore has a land area of about 721 square kilometres, making it one of the smallest countries in the world. Although small in size, Singapore commands an enormous presence in the world today with its free trade economy and highly efficient workforce. Also, its strategic location in the region has enabled Singapore to become a central sea port along major shipping routes.
Other than having a sound business infrastructure and favourable economic climate, Singapore, a parliamentary republic with a political system that’s centred on democracy, has a stable and competent ruling government.
Currently, Singapore’s population stands at about 5.8 million people, with English as the main language of instruction, and a mother tongue for each major ethnicity, mainly Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian.
Being a multi-racial society, Singapore is as diverse as it is cohesive. If you’re feeling nostalgic and looking to discover old world charm, you can explore and experience the island’s key historical landmarks or memorials. You can also embark on a heritage trail and enjoy the sights and sounds at various cultural precincts, notably Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam.
If you prefer the bright city lights and being amidst the hustle and bustle, there are numerous shopping malls, museums, and dining and entertainment hotspots to choose from. Get into the thick of the shopping action at the iconic Orchard Road stretch, or party the night away at the Clarke Quay or Boat Quay areas, both of which offer a myriad selection of nightlife activities.
The other thing that will strike you most about Singapore is its multifarious offering of food – day or night, there will always be something to whet your appetite. With a range of dining options from Peranakan to Chinese, Indian to Malay, fusion and more, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Beyond the history, culture, people, shopping and food, there are many more facets to Singapore’s thriving cityscape for you to discover. And these can only be experienced as you immerse yourself in the exploration of this once fishing village turned cosmopolitan city.
