The country has developed itself a great deal in the past fifty years which is clearly visible. Especially in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, one gets to see many buildings of modern architecture, a modern transportation system consisting of light rail, many luxurious shopping malls and countless expensive cars ply on the roads. Life outside of the capital is often less developed; but the times when people were only able to afford a motorcycle, are long gone.

The city is a blending pot of Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and English cultures and religions. Its unique ethnic heritage affords guests with an array of sightseeing and gastronomic opportunities. A full calendar of traditional festivals and holidays are celebrated throughout the year adds to its cultural appeal. Additionally, Singapore offers luxury hotels, delectable cuisine and provides the scope for a great shopping experience. The island nation of the Republic of Singapore lies a bit ahead of the Equator in Southern Asia. The country includes the island of Singapore and fifty-eight or so smaller islands. Because of its efficiency and determination of the government, Singapore has become a flourishing country that shines bright in trade and tourism sector and acts as a model for developing nations.
