Founded in 1965, Singapore is a country whose youth belies its rich heritage. While our infrastructure may have evolved rapidly to support a population of over 5 million people in under 730 km2, historic landmarks have been carefully preserved to co-exist alongside new ones.
Historic districts of Jalan Besar, Chinatown and Kampong Glam are rich in architectural heritage, while newer areas like the CBD district in Shenton Way and Bayfront are where you’ll find modern, towering skyscrapers.
While we may be small, you will never run out of art galleries, museums, festivals and concerts to enjoy.
The National Gallery Singapore occupies two national monuments – the former Supreme Court and City Hall – and houses the world’s largest public collection of modern art in Southeast Asia.
