A country located 300 KM from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Singapore is separated from Malaysia by the Straight of Johor (Johor is a state in Malaysia). To the north is the city of Johor Bahru, and to the south of the Johor-Singapore Causeway (the bridge linking Malaysia and Singapore) is the Woodlands District. Singapore is a 1st world country and the President of Singapore is Tony Tan Keng Yam. Singapore is mainly known for it strict laws (ex. No gay people, no gum chewing, and no porn) But it is known for its famous shopping centers such as Orchard Road and the Marina Bay Sands Shopping Center.
Singapore is known for its Excellent Education System. I recently moved from Niles, Illinois (I went to Niles North High School ) to Tanjong Pagar, Singapore, and I could not survive at my new school (Anderson Junior College) even though I had a 3.9 GPA back in Illinois ( I have about what is equal to a 2.4 GPA in the US.) Right now they are teaching me about the Binomial Theorem when I just learned about the Pythagorean Theorem.
Offical Languages are Tamil, Hokkien/Cantonese, Malay, and Singaporean Colloquial English/British English
Singapore is the best country I have ever been too (Ive been to Cambodia, Laos, Hong Kong, China, Macau, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Thailand) and it is a country I hope you will truly enjoy it as much as I do.

a country where you can get penalised for virtually anything,even chewing gums.But otherwise a great place with lots of delicious foods and shopping places.The living conditions aren't too shabby either,if you can stand hot and humid climate that is.
Singapore is a 'fine' country yes it is!
(fine refering to monetary one)
One of the best cities/countries to visit, if not live, in Asia. It's a shame that not as many people do so compared to others in the continent, namely Hong Kong and Tokyo, and other major cities around the world. Very orderly society, to a fault at times. And EVERYTHING works, particularly the infrastructure.
Singapore is vastly underrated when compared to other major cities in the world.
A country that you should give a chance to before making any snide comments about it.
Despite being a tiny 647km island surrounded by water, and despite all the negativity for its reputation of having too many restrictions, Singapore is actually a stable and safe country with great food and harmonious people.
If you don't care too much about politics, and would like to live in a place where jogging on the street at 4am is actually plausible without you getting mobbed, Singapore is a great choice to consider.
If you travel across the causeway from Malaysia and suddenly find yourself on spotlessly clean streets, then, welcome to Singapore.
A country that allows prostitution but doesn't allow oral sex. Now that's fucked up.
"Dude man, this chick will fuck me but she won't blow!"
A very small and somewhat clean country that is very strict.
& I don't like 47%-55% of the songs they play on the radio stations but I'll go with the damn flow.
I live in Singapore...yay.Whatever.
