Tourism in Singapore  is a major industry and attracts millions of tourists each
year. Its cultural attraction can be attributed to its cultural diversity that reflects its
colonial history and Chinese, Malay, Indian and Arab ethnicities. It is also
environmentally friendly, and maintains natural and heritage conservation programs.
As English is the dominant one of its four official languages, it is generally easier for
tourists to understand when speaking to the local population of the country, for
example, when shopping. Transport in Singapore exhaustively covers most, if not all
public venues in Singapore, which increases convenience for tourists. This includes
the well-known Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system.

Orchard Road district, which is dominated by multi-story shopping centres and
hotels, can be considered the center of tourism in Singapore. Other popular tourist
attractions include the Singapore Zoo and its Night Safari, which allows people to
explore Asian, African and American habitats at night without any visible barriers
between guests and the wild animals. The Singapore Zoo has embraced the 'open
zoo' concept whereby animals are kept in enclosures, separated from visitors by
hidden dry or wet moats, instead of caging the animals. Jurong Bird Park is another
zoological garden centred around birds, which is dedicated towards exposing the
public to as much species and varieties of birds from around the world as possible,
including a flock of one thousand flamingos. The tourist island of Sentosa, which
attracts more than 5 million visitors a year, is located in the south of Singapore,
consists of about 20-30 landmarks, such as Fort Siloso, which was built as a fortress
to defend against the Japanese during World War II. Guns from the World War II
era can be seen at Fort Siloso, from a mini-sized to a 16 pound (7 kg) gun. Recently,
the island has built the Tiger Sky Tower, which allows visitors to view the whole of
Sentosa, as well as the Sentosa Luge, a small one- or two-person sled on which one
sleighs supine and feet-first. Steering is done by shifting the weight or pulling straps
attached to the sled's runners.

Singapore has a variety of parks and projects which often feature its natural tropical

Singapore Zoo and Night Safari, allows people to explore Asian, African and
South American habitats at night, without any visible barriers between guests and the
wild animals.
