A safe, green and clean city
Singapore - Safe HeavenSingapore is considered by many as one of the safest city in the world (one of its nickname is the «Safe Heaven»). Thanks to a supporting government program dating from the ’60s, Singapore is also one of the world’s greenest cities. With a strict cap on the number of vehicles allowed on the island, and with more than 5 percent of the island reserved for nature, Singapore is literally a breath of fresh air. Lastly, the «Lion City» is admirably clean! Littering, spitting and smoking in public places is banned and verbalized, and all possible measures are taken to ensure an extraordinary cleanliness.
