Singapore, one of the most famous tourist attractions
by Nozomi U.
Singapore is a beautiful country called ‘garden city’ and is close to the Strait of Malacca that is so important to marine business. Moreover, the famous hotels in the world are accumulated, with Singapore Changi International Airport connecting many parts of Asia. This is why many people visit for sightseeing.
The Singapore government cooperates with the private sector in advancing the artificial resource of sightseeing. As a part of it, Universal Studio Singapore, Resorts World Sentosa, and Marine Life Park, which is the world’s biggest aquarium & museum are built.
They do tourism eagerly. Then the biggest Ferris wheel in the world and the huge casino resort facility, Marina Bay Sands, and so on, new tourist attractions are built one after another.
Marina Bay Sand is well-known even in Japan because of a Softbank TV commercial which SMAP appears on. In September, 2008, the Formula 1 Singapore Grand Prix is held using a highway in the central part of the urban area. That was the first F1 night race, and became one of the new purposes of sightseeing for F1 fans to visit and fascinate.
The scale of population and consumption are small because of the city state, but that’s how they wrestle with each field. Therefore, Singapore established a financial center in Southeast Asia, and could have enough power to be appreciated as the world’s #4 financial center.
