History & Culture

Singapore has been one of Asia's head destinations even before the pre-pioneer period. Its situation upon the Strait of Malacca makes it an essential port, which prompted its colonization by the British in the nineteenth century. From that point forward, Singapore has encountered real development and advanced into one of the world's leading financial centers. 
In the year 1819, Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles arrived and settled the southern part of Singapore for the British East Indian Company. By 1824, the whole island fell under British standard, and by 1826, Singapore turned out to be a piece of the British India Strait Settlements. In excess of 80,000 individuals lived inside the locale by 1870, as the elastic manor pulled in a large number of Chinese, Indian and Malay laborers. A statue of Sir Stamford Raffles is situated in downtown Riverside.
Despite the fact that Singapore is a little nation, it is one of the world's most multicultural goals. At the season of freedom from the British, the greater part of the populace was Chinese, Malay and Indian workers. From this equalization, present day Singapore has struck a social scene of acknowledgment and resilience among religions and social conventions. Dialect, occasions and cooking are all piece of Singapore's mixture.

The Singapore Sling is a world famous cocktail from Singapore. This gin-basedlong drink was developed by Ngiam Tong Boon, a Hainanese bartender working at the Long Bar in Raffles Hotel, Singapore sometime before 1915. Initially it was called the gin sling. Basically, a sling was originally a North American drink composed of spirit and water, sweetened and flavored. 

The precise date of creation of the world's most famous cocktail is a mystery. As per Gretchen Liu’s coffee table book Raffles Hotel, Singapore Sling, sometimes called the gin sling, was first mixed one hot afternoon in 1915. While others are equally certain that it was available to thirsty guests at least a decade earlier.

The Raffles hotel's resident historian, Leslie Danker gives an amusing reason behind the Singapore Sling's creation: "At the time, ladies were not meant to be seen drinking in public. As the bar tender created a recipe that was pink, no one knew that the ladies were drinking gin."
