Discover Singapore: The City's History & Culture Redefined

前表紙
Marshall Cavendish, 2007 - 208 ページ

Veering away from the usual tourist information, Discover Singaporeprovides an insight into the history and culture of the Lion City. Each of the entries is well researched and reveals little known facts and interesting nuggets that will appeal to both locals and visitors. For instance, did you know that the tombstone of Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim is supposed to be at Bidadari Cemetery in Upper Serangoon?

Singapore is also known for its campaigns but before the advent of the Courtesy and Speak Mandarin campaigns, there was Stop at Two and Eat More Wheat! Read the book and find out what was the country's first public campaign and lots more. With specially commissioned photographs that capture the essence of the text, the reader will be thrilled and fascinated by interesting and little known facts about Singapore!
