Singapore history and its culture had developed into a prosperous and wealthy country over the years. Its culture and origins came from all over the world just like the roots of a tree.

Socialcutural, history and technologically, supporting its growth.

For Geographic reason

Singapore is a small, open economy with no natural resources. Singapore is surrounded by the sea which is an important natural resource because the geography of this flat, little island where forming the southern part of the Malacca Straits at the intersection of the Indian and the Pacific Ocean, is a water passage for ships connecting East and West. It is bordered by the Indonesian island and the East-Malaysian states of Sabah. It was the sea that allowed Sir Stamford Raffles to arrive and establish Singapore; it was the sea that attracted him as it made Singapore an ideal port for his purposes of trade and it is the sea that facilitates the huge amount of trade that passes though Singapore today.

When the globe-spanning network mix together that becomes a better appreciation of the rich cultures that make up Singapore's multi-ethnic society. Singapore's location has long attracted traders from all over the world. Whether we use the forefather compared to the root. When those multi-ethnic cultures spread and extend to develop the new point in which regional economies, societies and cultures make up Singapore's global-culture.
