Singapore is a microcosm of Asia, populated by Chinese, Malays, Indians and a large group of workers and expatriates from all around the globe, in a country that can be crossed in barely an hour. It is a fairly crowded city and in fact, it is second only to Monaco as the world’s most densely populated country.
