As a nation with a wide range of cultures, ethnicities and religions, it’s no wonder that Singapore is one of the most harmonious and plural nations on the planet. Where else could you marvel at the charms of yesteryear in the historic Chinatown, then tuck into a delicious curry in Little India, before ending the night atop of the iconic Marina Bay Sands sipping a cocktail?

There are colourful festivals of special significance all year round and although the festivals are special to certain races, it is nonetheless enjoyed by all.
