The Lion City exudes a pioneering multi-cultural heritage amid a dazzling display of economic achievement and enterprise. Founded as a British trading colony, the island now galvanizes cruise visitors through a skyline of ultra-modern architecture, impeccable service, iconic attractions and pockets of ethnic communities who have retained their colorful cultural traditions. Its location at the tip of the Malay Peninsula has led it to be, historically, the single most important port in Asia.
Those arriving at either of its ports can easily access the wealth of attractions that present themselves. The ethnic heritage districts of Chinatown, Little India and Arab Street along with the colonial Civic District are great places for visitors to experience the delightful contrasts of tradition.
