Egal ob als kurzer Stop-over oder als temporäre Heimat für Expats: Singapur fasziniert, zumal, wenn man auch einen Blick hinter die Spiegelfassaden der Shoppingmalls wirft. Diese informative und unterhaltsame Gebrauchsanweisung liefert Wissenswertes, weniger zu touristischen Highlights, als zum kuriosen Alltag der Singapurer zwischen Tradition und Moderne, Ahnenkult und Fortschrittsglauben, Konsumrausch und Spiritualität - zu einer Nation, die es dank der eisernen Hand ihrer Regierung, viersprachiger Verbotsschilder und Mückenpolizei in kürzester Zeit von einem Malaria-Sumpf zu einem der fortschrittlichsten Länder der Welt gebracht hat. Lernen Sie die Mentalität von Singapurern und Expats verstehen, die die Autorin mit ihrem Insider-Wissen aus zwei Jahren persönlicher Erfahrung augenzwinkernd analysiert. Begegnen Sie einer so vielfältigen wie gegensätzlichen Metropole, in deren Hawker Centern Asiatinnen in straßbesetzten High Heels an Hühnerfüßen knabbern, um ihren Teint aufzufrischen. Tauchen Sie ein in eine Stadt, in der die Menschen innerhalb weniger Wochen das muslimische Zuckerfest, Weihnachten, das hinduistische Thaipusam und Chinese New Year feiern, sieben Tage die Woche rund um die Uhr shoppen, aber Kaugummi nur gegen Vorlage des amtlichen Lichtbildausweises erhältlich ist. Erfahren Sie, wie die Singapurer hungrige Geister verwöhnen, warum ein Nummernschild mit den Zahlen 2828 so begehrt ist, und was man hier mit einem Bikini aus Papier anfängt. This guide is a fact-based, tongue-in-cheek introduction to Singapore and its people from a European, German, personal point of view. It sheds a light on the mentality of Singaporeans - micro-managed and torn between shopping malls and superstition - as well as expats, just one species of many in this multi-ethnic metropolis, which is certainly one of the most diverse spots on this planet.

Moreover, the origami fold means you can do away with that awkward, oversized map, making it a compact and discreet reference tool that doesn´t shout ´tourist alert´! PopOut was founded in 1993. Having spotted a need to cure what he calls ´Map Stress Syndrome´ after watching numerous tourists around the City of Bath, England, battling with oversized maps, founder Derek Dacey recalled the invaluable miniature charts he used during his days as a commercial pilot. Aiming to bring this level of usability to the city map market, a small team of designers was recruited to realise what would soon become the PopOut. 1993 saw the release of the first ever PopOut Map Bath, which was sold in the gift and souvenir trade across the city. Hot on the heels of this initial success, a research trip to the USA culminated in a redesigned layout, combining strong photo images, high quality printing and laminated covers - standards which are still adhered to today. That research trip also saw the birth of the first US destinations covered in the PopOut range - Boston, NYC, Philadelphia and Washington DC. Launched in the new style in the US they enjoyed instant success in the gift and souvenir trade. Today, PopOut produces over 100 titles for major destinations and is loved by travellers the world over.
