    About Singapore

    Located in Southeast Asia, Singapore has a land area of about 710 square kilometres, making her one of the smallest countries in the world and the smallest in the region – hence the moniker “The Little Red Dot”. Although small in size, Singapore commands an enormous presence in the world today with its free trade economy and highly efficient workforce. Also, her strategic location in the region has enabled her to become a central sea port along major shipping routes.

    Singapore’s Population, Language and Culture

    At present, Singapore’s population stands at about five million people, with English as the main language of instruction, and a mother tongue for each major ethnicity. One of the distinctly Singaporean things you’ll notice on our island is a ubiquitous collage of cultures. Coming together as a society and living in harmony, there are four major races – namely the Chinese (majority), Malays, Indians and Eurasians. Each community offers a different perspective of life in Singapore in terms of culture, religion, food and language.

    GST refunds

    To enjoy a refund on the 7% Goods and Services Tax (GST) paid on your purchases, you need to make at least S$100 worth of purchases from participating outlets which display a “Tax Refund” logo or a Global Blue “Tax Free Shopping” logo. Request for a refund voucher upon purchase, which you should present with your purchases, receipts and passport at the Tax Refund Counter of the airport before you fly off. More information can be found at the Tourist Refund Scheme page on the Singapore Customs website at www.customs.gov.sg.
