Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population.
From street markets to high technology shopping, it offers a range of amazing experiences for travellers.
Singapore is an island nation. It is separated from Malaysia to the north by the Strait of Johore, and Indonesian islands to the south by the Singapore and Main Straits. Singapore is 8 hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+8), which is actually the 'wrong' time zone. In 1981, Malaysia standardized time across all its zones and Singapore elected to follow suit for business and travel reasons.
