Singapore

The most striking part of Singapore culture is its rich ethnic multiplicity that has brought about a seamless diffusion in the way Singaporeans go about their everyday lives. English, Malay, Mandarin, and Tamil are the official languages in Singapore, though English remains the most widely spoken since the various ethnic groups find it easier to communicate with each other in English.

Singapore’s population stands at around four and a half million, and the Chinese are forming the largest ethnic group, Singapore2with 76% of the population. In fact, Singapore is one of the largest Chinese cities out of China.

Thanks to its ethnic and cultural diversity, Singapore also boasts religious multiplicity and most of the world’s major religions are practiced in the small country.
