Singapore; The Lion City

By Elmot

Singapore is one of the smallest island city-state in the world located in Aisa. Despite of that it is also listed as one of the most popular destination by tourists as it boasts of its many man-made attractions, cleanliness and the discipline of its residents, internationally-recognized good governance by its leaders and the admiration of nations of rising from an obscure island to become the 5th wealthiest nation in the world. It is thus not only a paradise for first time visitors but also for all those who wants to invest in the most business-friendly economy in the world. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore) Its vibrant atmosphere and dynamic blend of different cultures are things to behold.
