Singapore is a cosmopolitan country where people of all countries feel right at home! In fact, 1 in 3 persons here come from abroad; adding to the nation’s unique heritage blend. Today, the population is a rich mix of different cultures, lifestyles and religions – co-existing harmoniously. Singapore is an island to the south of Peninsula Malaysia. Many world leaders have known Singapore as the “Little Red Dot” due to her size on the map. However, this country packs much more than her size; top-notch transportation, infrastructure, security, high GDP, multi-racial harmony and uniquely a “Garden City”.
Being a consistent top performer in Mercer’s Quality of Living surveys and the top-ranked Asian city in the 2012 survey, Singapore has taken the work-live-play approach very much to heart. Singapore is recognised as one of the cleanest and greenest cities in the world. The public transport system and healthcare services are world-class. This provides a dynamic business environment and creates plenty of work opportunities locally and overseas. There are numerous schools catering to the education needs of expatriate children. It is one of the push factors that make Singapore a great place to raise a family. The arts and culture scene here is thriving and growing. A host of acclaimed museums, such as the ArtScience Museum located at the luxurious Marina Bay district and countless theatre and musical productions at world-class venues like The Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.
Singapore is a huge gastronomic draw for the Expats staying here.
