Singapore is a tropical cosmopolitan city state located in Southeast Asia. As a City in Nature, Singapore is a contrast of skyscrapers set against lush urban greenery. English is the official language and an efficient public transport system makes travelling a breeze. There are also many opportunities for entertainment, culinary and cultural experiences.

Despite its largely urban setting, Singapore boasts relatively species-rich coral reefs, mangrove and seagrass habitats—due to its location in one of the most biodiverse regions of the world. More than 250 species of reef corals, over 120 species of sponges, and 120 species of reef fish have been recorded here.
