It has a strong economy and strong international trading links. Singapore has separated from Malaysia to become independent and sovereign state on the 9th August 1965. T

- Multicultural country with ethnic Chinese, Malays and ethnic Indians and Chinese Singaporeans, that make up the majority of the population.

Which places are a MUST visit in Singapore? Here is my list:
1. Marina Bay Sands Singapore
This hotel has opened in 2010 and is great for everyone who appreciate luxury. The complex includes three towers topped by a connecting 340-metre-long SkyPark. The view from the hotel is breathtaking as it is surrounded by the Gardens By the bay. Depending on the date of stay, it costs around 200-300 pounds / night to stay in this luxurious hotel. The Lotus shaped building by the side of the hotel, that you see on the picture is the ArtScience Museum.

This place is well known of the Gian Super Trees that are 25m and 50m tall with composed of actual living plants. You can enter this place for free and watch the light show and listening to the playing classical music.
