Singapore presents the whole of South-East Asia in a microcosm. Chinese, Malays, Indians, Europeans, as well as other Asian people have brought their cultures, religions, dress and cuisines, all of which has been happily assimilated into the Singaporean way of life.

Food varies from inexpensive local favourites at outdoor eating stalls, to the finest international cuisine available at exclusive restaurants. Shopping, whether in air-conditioned malls or street bazaars, ranges from the latest electronics to antiques, from haute couture to high street bargains.

The annual Great Singapore Sale is well-known for its attractive offers and reduced prices and attracts shoppers worldwide. Entertainment encompasses everything from Chinese theatre to Indian movies, marathon beach parties to unique heritage museums, water theme parks to wildlife conservation reserves, family entertainment to cultural activities and more.
