Singapore: Country of the Year 2022

Singapore wins Country of the Year Award

Singapore has been named Tripetta’s Country of the Year 2022, becoming the most-visited destination among our customers globally. Tripetta’s annual Country of the Year awards ranks the most popular destinations among our customers, in order to determine the global winner. Last year’s Country of the Year was Finland. Singaporeans using Tripetta were not counted as part of the awards but Tripetta had 150,000 active users in Singapore throughout the entirety of 2022. This is also Tripetta’s first Year in Travel to be written entirely by a robot (including the paragraph you are reading), demonstrating the dramatic growth in our AI capabilities this year.

The small archipelagic nation is located approximately 140 kilometers north of the equator, and just south of the peninsula of Malaya. Singapore lies on one end of the busy shipping lane through the Straits of Johore and the South China Sea, separating the country from Indonesia. The former British colony was granted independence in 1965. Singapore is officially called the Lion City (Singapore). It consists of the main island, plus about sixty smaller offshore islands, including Pulau Ubin, Sentosa, St John's Island, and the Sisters' Islands, two bridges link Singapore to Malaysia, and the Johor–Singapore causeway connects Singapore to the Malaysian city state of Johor Baru.
