Old and New
Chinatown
The magnificent view from a corridor of one of our many government-subsidised housing flats, overlooking our skyscrapers and traditional shophouses. We are a harmonious mix of old and new, traditional and modern; and all these elements are uniquely Singapore.

Splashing in the Tropics
Gardens By The Bay
Splash away the summer heat. Singapore is a growing, young, modern country that offers fun and magic moments for each individual - even when you can barely blink without breaking a sweat under the blistering sun. The kids (and adults too) can enjoy the city’s fantastic water parks to cool down and have fun.

Reflection of the Times
Boat Quay
Reflection. Sunrise at Boat Quay, a historical quay in Singapore. This was the busiest part of the old Port of Singapore, which handled three quarters of all shipping business during the 1860s. Singapore has made efforts to preserve and promote our heritage, such as the historic buildings, sites and structures that contribute to our sense of history.

Cutting Edge
Gardens By The Bay
Beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost. It makes sense that Singapore makes the list of the most futuristic cities in the world. Its cutting-edge architecture and design by some of the world’s most brilliant architects is showcased by our ever-changing skyline, as we have seen over the past decade. One can only imagine how much further it will advance over the decades to come.
