SINGAPORE CULTURE - SINGAPORE CULTURE

Singapore CultureSingapore Culture – Singapore is a small island country and has a multi racial population. Below are some details about Singapore. Singapore is located in South East Asia, at the southern most tip of Malaysia Peninsula. It is situated one degree north of Equator. The population of Singapore is about 4 millions.

The make-up of the population is about 77% Chinese, 14% Malay and 8% Indian. The remainder includes a number of other ethnic groups. English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil are languages widely spoken and there is an 80% literacy rate on the island. About 43% are Buddist and there are equal numbers of Islamists and Christians (at about 15%).

The various population strands all retain their Cultural Influences and it could be said that there is no unique Singapore culture as such. However, many consider Singapore the cuisine capital of Asia and there is a very wide range of European, Chinese, Indian, Indonesian and Westerns dishes on offer.

The Chinese New Year is a major celebration and the Lion Dance is performed during the street parties. Chinese opera is also popular.

To most visitors, Singapore immediately comes across as a very well run country and rules and laws are adhered to all the time.
