Visitor Information

Singapore

Singapore is a tropical country in Southeast Asia. The city’s modern skyscrapers and buildings are often juxtaposed with vibrant greenery, hence giving it the nickname “City in a Garden”. It is well-known as a cosmopolitan city, with English being the widely spoken language among the locals. The country also boasts a plethora of food, entertainment, and culture options. Besides having a well-organised public transportation system, Singapore’s Changi Airport also holds the title of World’s Best Airport for six years running.

Even though Singapore is considered to be an urban city, it is situated in one of the most biodiverse areas in the world, containing species-rich coral reefs, mangrove swamps, and seagrass. To date there have been 12 species of seagrass recorded, a little less than the number discovered in the Indo-Pacific region. This includes the globally susceptible Halophila beccarii.
