Singapore is a country that is composed of immigrants from neighboring countries like Malaysia, India, Indonesia, China, and even from Europe. The blend of the different ethnic backgrounds of the people made the culture of Singapore unique.

One of the most popular things that you can do in Singapore is to indulge yourself in an exquisite dining experience around the city. The different cultures of the people can be seen and tasted in their cuisine. The flavorful menu that you can experience in Singapore is what made it to be known as a gourmetís paradise in the east. Depending on your budget, you can choose to dine in the 5 star restaurants or experience a unique dining experience in the street stalls where you can find foods representing each culture.
