About Singapore

Singapore is a small island located just off the southern tip of peninsular Malaysia. Originally Singapore was like many islands you find around Malaysia, almost entirely covered by farmland and tropical rainforest.  At that time the city of Singapore was small and situated around the mouth of the Singapore River on the southern coast of the island. The original city of Singapore is now classed as downtown Singapore and over time many new towns have been built on the island to the point where Singapore is now almost entirely built up.

Following 50 years of growth, Singapore is now an economic powerhouse of Asia with many of the world's largest multi centre companies having a base here. Its main industries today are financial services, high tech manufacturing and oil refining. The port of Singapore is also one of the busiest in the world.
