It is important to mention that Singapore is an island that has become a major commercial and financial center of Southeast Asia, as it has an active port that houses a modern fleet of merchant ships and cruise ships, and for that reason Singapore is considered one of the world’s busiest ports.
Singapore as you know is called by many as the great Tiger of Asia and its economy is truly enviable. If we go back in time we will realize that once was a colony of England. Now that we have a general appearance on this country, let’s do a little sightseeing.
First we practice cultural tourism, visiting the Asian Civilisations Museum to learn not just the story of country but across the continent. Then we can go toward the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall is a theater dating from 1919, which rests in the heart of the capital city of Singapore. In case you did not know, we tell you that this is a complex where various artistic performances are presented.
We can also opt to visit the center of the Singapore Chinese Orchestra. We refer to the Singapore Conference Hall located at 7 Shenton Way. It is worth mentioning that currently presents the Edinburgh Festival in the Diaspora.
