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.
