Singapore


Singapore is often nicknamed The Lion City (rawrrr!), and happens to be one of the smallest but most densely populated countries in the world. The U.S. population is 15,000 times larger than Singapore! Singaporeans are mobile tech savvy - 8 in 10 people in Singapore own cell phones with new numbers issued at the rate of 30,000 to 40,000 per month. (True story). Did you know that the record for the biggest ever game of pass-the-parcel was set in Singapore in 1998? It involved 3,918 students removing 2,200 wrappers from a 1.5 x 1.5 x 0.5 m parcel. Singapore also holds the record for the most number of people participating in line dancing with 11,967 dancers (2002). Giddyup! Singapore is ranked as the world’s second most open economy by the Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom. It is first in the world for ease of doing business and fourth in starting one, according to a World Bank study. Low barriers to entry for business with low tax rates, easy-to-obtain seed money, and a well-educated, English-speaking workforce in the gateway to Asia made the business case Camping in Singapore an easy one.
