This modern metropolis offers soaring skyscrapers, fabulous restaurants and great shopping, plus a diversity of cultures that reflects all of Asia. Gleaming trinkets sparkly in Chinatown shops. Pungent aromas waft from the spice stores of Little India, and shiny brassware fills the stalls along Arab Street. In the colonial section, Singapore Slings are still served at the Raffles Hotel, where the concoction was created.
