Travel Pictures Gallery.com - Singapore
a series of travel images from Singapore. Singapore (Singapura) is an island state in the south of the Malay Peninsula. It became independent of the British in 1965. With strong influences from India and China it is a kaleidoscope of South-East Asian culture. The country's thriving economy results in modern skyscrapers but the rows of Peranakan shophouses are well preserved. A great place to spend a few days sampling the excellent food and scenery.
