New Asia-Singapore expresses the essence of today's Singapore, a vibrant, multi-cultural, cosmopolitan, sophisticated city-state where tradition and modernity, East and West, meet and mingle harmoniously.

The island, founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819, has evolved from a small fishing village to a modern and thriving city. Luxury hotels and shopping malls dotting this tropical island are well-connected by the Mass Rapid Transit network. Singapore's bustling port, world-renowned Changi airport and thriving business, bear testimony to its position as a leading financial and commercial hub in the region.

Singapore - City of Diverse Cultures, The Garden City, The Fun City, City for the Arts and Gateway City - offers visitors a destination where they can "live it up" and indulge themselves. Whether it be tucking into a traditional breakfast of freshly brewed coffee and kaya on toast, hiking at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, pampering yourself at a spa or partying all night long at the trendiest night-spots along Mohamed Sultan Road, visitors can find many ways to "live it up" in Singapore throughout the year!

Ethnic districts in Geylang Serai, Arab Street, Chinatown and Little India portray Singapore's rich ethnic, cultural and historical heritage. The religious monuments, quaint shophouses, wonderful array of traditional food and ethnic goods provide an interesting insight into the cultural fabric of Singapore.

The Botanic Gardens, Chinese and Japanese Gardens, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Sungei Buloh Nature Park reflect the Garden City's natural beauty. Nature attractions like the Jurong Bird Parks and the Singapore Zoological Gardens, showcase fine collections of wildlife, while visitors can gaze upon nocturnal animals at the Night Safari.
