Singapore

This tiny city-state packs lots of ‘wow’ into 264 square miles at the tip of the Malaysian peninsula. This historic East/West crossroads, plied by European, Arab, Chinese, Malay, and Indian traders for centuries, is today one of the world’s best melting pots. And this is no more apparent than in the eclectic cuisine at Singapore’s hawker centers, the traditional temples that dot the modern cityscape, and the friendly people who call the ‘City in a Garden’ home.
