I'm a city girl at heart (born and raised in NYC), but over the years I've developed a deep appreciation for nature and greenery. Singapore is an interesting mix of the two. The country is committed to staying true to the feeling of being a "City in a Garden". In Singapore you'll see world class modern architecture surrounded by an abundance of plants and trees. Although small in size, 278 square miles, Singapore is one of Asia's largest economic and industrial powerhouses.
