Famed for its diverse ethnicities, food, and booming Asian Tiger economy, this island city-state is no longer a "little red dot."
Singapore, a tiny island city-state, has an outsize importance on the world economy. Once a sleepy fishing village, or so the myth goes, it toiled under British rule until its independence in 1965, and has since then catapulted into a global financial superpower. Singapore's famously multicultural makeup—with four official languages that include English, Malay, Mandarin Chinese and Tamil —has contributed to its diverse food culture and architecture.
