A Little about Singapore |
With an area of approximately 723 sq. kms, the country of Singapore is probably the size of a large city, but holds within its borders all the sights and sounds that make it a world in itself. It is known as the Garden City because of its vast areas of greenery, trees and parks. Incidentally, it is also known as the Lion City. The English name of Singapore comes from the Malay word Singapura, which means the Lion City. In fact, the mascot of Singapore is a mythical creature called a ‘Merlion’, which has the body of a fish and the head of a lion. There is a huge statue of the Merlion in the Merlion Park in Singapore. This wonderful and fascinating country is an important feature in most Far East tours because of its sheer beauty and great attractions.
