This multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multilingual society that has substantial influences derived from Chinese and Indian culture dates back to when foreign trade began and is a beautiful trip to take. The original culture of the area stemmed from indigenous tribes that inhabited it, along with the Malays who later moved there. Other cultural influences include the Persian, Arabic and British cultures.
Dining, along with shopping, is said to be the country’s national pastime. The focus on food has led countries like Australia to attract Singaporean tourists with food-based itineraries. The diversity of food is touted as a reason to visit the country, and the government sees the variety of food representing different ethnicities as a symbol of its multiculturalism. The “national fruit” of Singapore is the durian.
In popular culture, food items belong to a particular ethnicity, with Chinese, Indian and Malay food clearly defined. However, the diversity of cuisine has been increased further by the “hybridization” of different styles (e.g., the Peranakan style, a mix of Chinese and Malay cuisine). Since the 1990s, the government has been promoting Singapore as a centre for arts and culture – the performing arts and to transform the country into a cosmopolitan “gateway between the East and West”. Since Singapore is a small island with a high population density, the number of private cars on the road is restricted to curb pollution and congestion.
Bangkok is one of the world’s top tourist destination cities. The culture of Bangkok reflects its position as Thailand’s centre of wealth and modernization. The city has long been the portal of entry of Western concepts and material goods, which have been adopted and blended with Thai values to various degrees by its residents.
