Over the past 20 years, Singapore has been transformed from a sleepy, traditional city to an international business hub. Taxes are low in Singapore, one of the fastest growing economies in the world, offering huge opportunities for expats with the right qualifications.

Several projects look set to change Singapore’s landscape. The Marina Bay is being transformed into the city’s new financial and business district, with cutting edge office blocks, apartment developments and entertainment and retail outlets. One of these residential towers is The Sail, which will have 1,111 units offering spectacular waterfront views and at 245m, one of the world’s top ten tallest residential buildings. Further out of town, Sentosa and the southern isles are being groomed as huge tourist destinations with casinos, hotels, entertainment facilities and themed attractions over 500 hectares of land. Singapore is exciting and vibrant and offers plenty of scope for surveying and project management professionals.

Random fact: To comply with air regulations, the maximum height permitted for a skyscraper is 280m.
