Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Located near the equator is the tiny island of Singapore -- a cosmopolitan city bustling with activities and spanking modern office buildings. What lies behind this façade of a concrete and glass city is a beautiful country with a distinct colonial past and a melting pot of Western and Eastern cultures and heritage. It is this distinctive blend that makes Singapore uniquely accessible to the rest of the world and a definite destination for travellers. From the stately, colonial-style Supreme Court to the crowded carvings of deities on deities on Sri Mariamman Temple's structure, from the constant throb of economic activity in the central business district to a leisurely afternoon at Arab Street, and from the soothing green of trees at the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve to the enlivening red of Chinese New Year decorations, Singapore is a concentrated mix of passion and relaxation, and of the modern and the traditional. The guide provides a panoramic look at Singapore and is a treasure trove of photographs and information that provides a concise guide to the people, government, food and economy of Singapore.
