The Republic of Singapore, sometimes referred to as the Lion City, is a sovereign city-state in Southeast Asia. The territory consists of one main island along with 62 other islets. A global commerce, finance and transport hub, Singapore has a tropical climate with a multicultural population. Its colonial core centres on the Padang, a cricket field since the 1830s and now flanked by grand buildings such as City Hall, with its 18 Corinthian columns. In Singapore's circa-1820 Chinatown stands the red-and-gold Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, said to house one of Buddha's teeth. From its gardens to historic sites, religious places to nightlife, Singapore hosts an enthralling stay.
