Singapore is the only country in the world that is both an island and a city-state.
The iconic Merlion statue, which has the body of a fish and the head of a lion, is a symbol of Singapore. It represents the city’s original name, “Singapura,” meaning “Lion City” in Malay.
Despite its urbanization, Singapore is known as a “City in a Garden.” It has over 300 parks and four nature reserves.
Singapore is renowned for its cleanliness and strict anti-littering laws.
Singapore has four official languages: English, Malay, Mandarin Chinese, and Tamil.
While chewing gum was once banned in Singapore, it was lifted in 2004 with some regulations to maintain cleanliness and hygiene.
