• Country Facts With meticulously planned architecture, a perfectly coordinated public transport system and litter free roads, Singapore, with not a hair out of place, is literally like a movie set. No fist-clenching traffic jams here, no beggars pulling at your sleeve for alms and certainly no fear of being mugged as you stroll alone well past midnight. With a unique medley of Muslim Malay, Chinese and Indian cultures, there are enough antique shops, temples and ethnic eateries to choose from and a sub-culture that has a flavour of its own. To get under Singaporean skin, read 'Fistful of Colours' by Suchen Christine Lim, watch 'Mee Pok Man' by Eric Khoo and listen to Chinese Opera.
