Singapore.
A Tropical City-State.

Singapore has long been known for its ultra-tidy policing, like its notorious chewing gum ban that lasted over a decade. But the city-state is so much more than a network of pristine streets. Perhaps the best way to delve into Singapore’s history is to start by visiting Raffles Hotel, home of the famous Singapore Sling. Invented by a local sometime in the early 1900s, the drink’s creation has since become somewhat of an urban legend (the story goes that the original recipe was lost and forgotten sometime in the 1930s, until it somewhat reemerged through the memories of former bartenders and rediscovered notes). The drink is refreshing, with its cherry brandy, pineapple and limejuice. But the hotel itself is also steeped in

history. Built in 1887 with tropical gardens and terracotta-tiled courtyards, the Raffles Hotel was considered the place for British colonials. Today, it stands as a reminder of Singapore’s less than-independent past but offers a decadent setting with a rich guest list that includes the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Rudyard Kipling. Hotels in Singapore offers excellent services and affordable rates.

This tropical city-state, which remains warm and humid year round, has an eclectic mix of religions and cuisines. Most Singaporeans follow the Buddhist tradition, though many follow the Islamic, Christian, Taoist, Catholic and Hindu faith. You won’t have any problem finding English-speakers here, as it’s the second most commonly used language. But you’ll find the best adventures await in the various ethnic enclaves scattered throughout Singapore, from Arab Street to Little India.
