History of this country dates back to ancient times when indigenous people from Malaysian peninsula and other neighboring islands migrated to this region at around 1500 B.C. But, the history of Singapore mentions that the earliest humans settled in Singapore somewhere in the second century A.D. It was a part of the Sultanate of Johor during the period between sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. Thomas Stamford Raffles, a British statesman who is often described as 'Father of Singapore', signed a treaty with Sultan Hussein Shah of Johor on behalf of East India Company in 1819. This was done to develop the southern part of this region as British trading post. Many immigrant workers came to this place to work at rubber plantations and the island became well-known by the late nineteenth century for its rubber exports. It fell to the Japanese forces during World War II, but was eventually repossessed by the British after Japanese surrender in 1945. Singapore claimed independence from Britain on 31st of August, 1963, but was still a part of Malaysia. It became an independent country on 9th of August, 1965. Post-independence, it got elevated to the status of a modern economy with Foreign Direct Investment and industrialization. Today, it is often ranked as one of the least corrupt countries in this world and has an advanced infrastructure and low tax rates.

People who visit Singapore can find several places where they can shop for clothes and accessories from the world's leading brands. There are certain areas that are dominated by multi-storied shopping malls and complexes. With its major conservation programs, the country has also become environmentally friendlier. One of the pleasant Singapore facts is that it has world's lowest crime rates, owing to an efficient judicial system. English is one of its official languages and widely spoken, providing greater convenience for tourists to know more about Singapore and its local population. Many world-class hotels can also be found in this region and are fully equipped with ultra-modern amenities. Owing to the cultural diversities, tourists can also have a wide range of delicious cuisines to choose from.
