Why is Singapore so popular?

Singapore is a melting pot of cultures. Around 75 percent of the population are Chinese. The remainder is made up of Malays, Indians and a few other minorities. This also results in a colorful bouquet of different religious affiliations. Almost a third of the city statesmen are Buddhists. Christians, Muslims, Taoists and Hindus are also part of the vibrant backdrop of Singapore.

With so much Diversity it is no wonder that the range of activities and experiences for tourists is almost unbelievable. State-of-the-art glass and steel skyscrapers soar towards the sky, while British colonial buildings adorn the outskirts. In the huge Chinatown you will find colorful neighborhoods with small shops, markets and great restaurants.
