Singapura, meaning “Lion City” was named long ago by a Sumatra prince visiting the island and upon sighting a lion, he was inspired to find a city on the spot …or so goes the Malay legend. More recent history records Sir Stamford Raffles as the father of Singapore where he came to establish the British East India trading company and while there reshaped the history of Singapore forever. Today, the city-state is an independent republic. The location at the tip of the Malay Peninsula gives her strategic advantages in business, culture and tourism. Lacking natural resources, its economy base is commerce, finance, electronics and shipping. A closer look offers a glimpse to the blending of such fascinating cultures as Chinese, Malay, and Indian into the Colonial period under British rule and into her role in the war against Japan.

Singapore is the perfect gateway to our Indonesian programs
