Through 160 colour photographs and a concise, informative text, this handsome Singapore travel guide and pictorial presents all the excitement of Singapore; its rich colonial past, its ethnic diversity, and its dynamic present. 

Located in the heart of Asia, the island republic of Singapore is a city full of surprises and contrasts. This is literally where East meets West; as the city state that has long been one of the world's largest seaports and banking centers now strives for a high-tech future while attempting to maintain its traditional social and family values. Boasting a world-class infrastructure and tourist attractions like Universal Studios, Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay and Botanic Gardens that were recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site; Singapore lures visitors with some of Asia's best shopping, finest food and a diverse and friendly population. Reflecting on the past, but striving for the future, Singaporeans embrace life with optimism. As a memento of Singapore, this revised edition explores many new and upcoming attractions in Singapore, such as the Jurong Lake Gardens and the Jewel Changi Airport.
