Tourism in Singapore

The geographic location and landscape situation of Singapore makes it a dream destination for tourists. Apart from being close to the equator, the main island and the islets form a basis of tourist city attractions. Tourism is a primary income earner in Singapore and, therefore, the government has stepped up efforts to boost and support this activity.
Statistics show that Singapore is a major global player in the tourism industry (Board, 2011 pg. 66). Tourism in Singapore is one of the activities in that state that has gained not only global participation but global appreciation as well. Tourism has contributed a significant part of the Singapore economy with the income earned from tourism being used in government projects that increase the welfare of the people. The recent years have recorded an increase in the number of tourists visiting the country, even to as far as doubling the Singapore population. The government in Singapore has boosted tourism efforts by ensuring an environment-friendly country. The government has put in place natural heritage conservation programs, which make environment protection more of an obligation to every Singapore citizen. The government, in support of the citizens, has also ensured a beefed up security in the nation. World statistics show that Singapore is one of the countries in the world with the lowest crime rates. Security is a vital issue for any aspiring and practicing tourist. Security factors, therefore, make Singapore a dream tourist destination. Communication acts as one of the challenges for travelers in new countries. Singapore’s major strength in overcoming communication issues for tourists is that she has four official languages. With English as the dominant language, visitors from the United States, Britain, and other English-speaking&nbsp.nations are at comfort in Singapore.&nbsp.
