    Singapore is a city of gardens and the heart of South East Asia. Its
    history began in 1819 with Thomas Stamford Raffles, a young official
    who worked for the British East India Company. Raffles estimated
    that the natural harbor was perfect for trading ships, so he bought
    the land from the Sultan of Johor and founded a trading
    settlement.As a free port, Singapore attracted trading ships from
    all over the world and today, 4 million people live here on an area
    that covers 640 square kilometres.In June each year, there is an
    exciting boat race in Marina Bay known as the Dragon Boat Race, that
    features magnificently painted dragon boats with hand-carved heads
    and tails accompanied by the sound of frenetic drumbeats.Dating back
    to colonial times, British influence is omnipresent, whether the
    Cricket Club or the Parliament, traditional English spirit rules
    despite Singapores Independence.The World Famous Raffles Hotel is
    situated in the Colonial District near the Singapore River. In the
    hotels Ashanti Bar, it was customary to throw expired peanut shells
    directly onto the floor and at the same time, reverently sip a
    Singapore Sling, the national drink.The Singapore Zoo is one of the
    finest in the world in which the animals can roam freely, their
    territory being surrounded by a landscaped ditch. Approximately
    2,800 animals live in the spacious enclosures and even those from
    the worlds coldest regions can be observed both below and above
    water, thanks to cleverly designed viewing areas.A complete mix of
    ethnic cultures, theres Chinatown, Little India and the Arab Street
