A Gateway to Singapore

Singapore’s multicultural nature is one of our strongest points – we get to share knowledge, traditions and practices between a diverse range of people, making this a vibrant and dynamic place to live.

Our Culture Gateway series delves deeper into this, exploring the history and customs behind Singapore’s various communities. While individual books focus on a specific community, a good place to start is Gateway to Singapore Culture, which provides an overview of our country’s rich cultural tapestry.

The colourfully illustrated book devotes a section to each of the five main cultures in Singapore: Malay, Chinese, Indian, Eurasian and Peranakan. Find out more about yourself and your friends, from the origins and cuisine of each community, to their beliefs and famous individuals. There is so much history behind all of us who make up Singapore, and no better introduction to it than Gateway to Singapore Culture.

Living in a multicultural society is extremely rewarding, but we should also be aware of the ways that different people negotiate such an experience. At the root of racial concord is a deep appreciation and understanding of our different communities, and it is thus important that the book touches upon its subject. It is, ultimately, a celebration of friendship, peace and harmony.

To learn more about other cultures is to engage with them, and Gateway to Singapore Culture does so in a fun and accessible way. Simply pick up a copy of it to find out about the rich history that underlies Singapore today, and deepen your understanding of what it means to be a diverse community!
