Singapore, Singapore

Singapore, an island city-state off southern Malaysia, is a global financial center with a tropical climate and multicultural population. Its colonial core centers on the Padang, a cricket field since the 1830s and now flanked by grand buildings such as City Hall, with its 18 Corinthian columns. In Singapore's circa-1820 Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, said to house one of Buddha's teeth.

Singapore's safety, low crime rates, and high standards of living are well renowned, offering international students an ideal environment for study. When it's time to put away the books, myriad sports, entertainment, and other fascinating sights and sounds are available to relax your mind and fill your senses.
