About Singapore

Singapore, once a former British colony, is an island city-state located at the southernmost tip of the Malay Peninsula, below the Malaysian border. Spanning a mere 424 square miles (683 km2), it is relatively small in size, approximately 3.5 times the size of Washington, DC. This compactness facilitates convenient and swift travel across the entire country.

Due to its history as a former colony and its multicultural nature, Singapore offers a fascinating blend of cultures, cuisines, architectural styles, religions, languages, and artistic expressions. The population consists of various ethnic groups, with Chinese accounting for 77 percent, East Indians 8 percent, and Malays 14 percent.

Following its independence, Singapore emerged as one of the world’s most prosperous nations, establishing strong international trade relations. Its Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is comparable to that of prosperous European countries.
