The story of Singapore is one of trials, tribulations and triumphs. In a short span of just over 50 years, we have evolved from a colony to a city-state with our own unique identity, forged by a spirit of never settling. And it’s this spirit that’s imbued into the architectural wonders, lush parks, proud heritage, world-class attractions and amazing food of the cosmopolitan metropolis you see today.
Singapore is home to many places that embolden and inspire passions. In the National Gallery Singapore, the world’s largest public collection of local and Southeast Asian art gives culture shapers plenty to admire. Yet, it’s also where foodies such as Yugnes Susela thrive—the bartender lives out his obsession for cocktails on a balcony of the gallery, shaking up tipples as a stunning view of the Civic District opens up before him.
We’re also known as a “City in a Garden”, and for good reason: almost a third of the island is draped in green. These idyllic nature reserves and rainforests are the playgrounds of explorers such as Subaraj Rajathurai. The eco-tour guide, who’s an expert on indigenous flora and fauna, leads nature trails for local and visiting enthusiasts keen on immersing themselves in our thriving biodiversity. Places like these are where passions converge in Singapore, but it’s the people who splash colour and vibrancy across the city.
