Singapore is a wealthy island nation. It has one of the busiest container ports in the world, exporting goods all over the world. Financial services are also growing in importance. The city centre is a dense forest of skyscrapers. All this means that on average the Singaporeans enjoy one of the highest living standards in the world.
Singapore may work hard, but there's lots of fun to be had. The small island of Sentosa has a 2 km long beach, golf courses and hotels. It is also home to the underwater world, where you can see pink dolphins. Singapore's other big wildlife attraction is the night safari dedicated to nocturnal species.
