Steeped in the traditions of a multicultural heritage and prospering in a Western business ethic, Singapore is a fascinating fusion of Eastern and Western sophistication. At the crossroads of ancient and present day trading routes, Singapore has drawn a broad mix of humanity over the centuries. As early as the second century AD, Singapore linked trade between the West and the East.

Chinese, Malays, Indians, Arabs and Europeans settled here, creating Singapore's unique cultural makeup. About three quarters of Singapore residents are Chinese. The two largest ethnic minority groups are Malay and Indian. Singapore has four official languages: Chinese, English, Malay and Tamil. Singapore's potpourri of values, beliefs and customs flourish in this tiny island city-state. The people of Singapore enjoy one of the highest standards of living in the Asia Pacific region.

Its name, 牛車水 (niu che shui), means ox cart water, because water for the area was originally supplied by ox-drawn carts. This culturally rich Singapore neighborhood offers an array of shopping choices, from storefronts to malls. Buddha Tooth Relic Temple is a must-see. It houses a 27-foot Buddha statue and one of the religious master's teeth. The food selection here will thrill travelers looking for delicious food from all areas of China.
