Singapore is known for being a city with extravagant pleasures and lavish activities. However, there’s so much more here than just high-end boutiques and playgrounds for the rich. This small city is rich in heritage and culture dating back hundreds of years. The diverse society has also created a unique social atmosphere with a bustling food scene and adventure.
