Located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula, Singapore is the world’s only island city-state. Since independence from Britain, the country has developed at a phenomenal rate and is one of the leading economic centers in the world. However, its colonial history is evident almost everywhere you look in the architecture, place names and monuments, such as the Raffles Hotel, named after Singapore’s founder Sir Thomas Raffles. There are four official languages, English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil but English is the language of government and the education system. Although Singapore is heavily urbanized, the “garden city” initiative of the government in the 1960s means that today there are plenty of green spaces to enjoy with almost 10% of land devoted to parks and nature reserves.
As a major transport hub the city is easy to get to with flights from hundreds of destinations around the world plus busy ports receiving ferries from other countries in the region. Singapore is connected to mainland Malaysia by two causeways enabling access by car and rail.
Sentosa Island is one of the main tourist attractions in the city and is home to Resorts World, Universal Studios and Madame Tussauds. Other attractions in Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Arab Street where you can fulfill your dining out and nightlife needs. Orchard Road is a top destination for shoppers from all over the region. To escape the hustle and bustle of city life, you can head to one of the local parks and hire a bicycle or go to the islands of Ubin and Kusu where you will be able to enjoy pristine beaches and nature.Apply now & get certified to teach english abroad!
