Population & Lifestyle


While Singaporeans may come from different ethnic backgrounds, they tend to share many of the same qualities - a love of family, a penchant for hard work and a pride in their origins. The Chinese make up 76%, the Malays, just over 15% and Indians comprise 6.5% of the population. The traditions and artistic legacies of these communities live on in the ethnic districts of Chinatown, Arab Street and Little India for all to enjoy.

Singapore is also home to descendants of early Portuguese, Arab, Armenian and Jewish settlers. Singapore has four official languages - English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil.

Singapore provides a safe environment and has one of the highest living standards, thanks to a wide choice of housing, first-class medical services and excellent education. Being globally connected, the region has an extensive telecommunications network that is complimented by state-of-the-art computer systems. Its lifestyle is both vibrant and comfortable.

In the entertainment section, the region provides several arts centres and performance halls, movie theatres, pubs and nightspots and shopping centres.

Dining options are abundant as a long chain of restaurants and food centres that can be found throughout the island. Singapore has clean and green surroundings, which are perfect for outdoor activities including golf courses, sports complexes and picnic areas and hiking paths. Architecturally significant buildings that go back 100 years or more are conserved alongside new and modern sleek office towers of the business districts.
