Southeast Asia is a subregion of Asia, consisting of the countries that are geographically south of China, east of India and north of Australia. The mainland section consists of Burma, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam and Peninsular Malaysia, while the maritime section consists of Brunei, East Malaysia, East Timor, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Singapore.
Singapore, where the Latitudes Head Office is located, is one of the most Western countries in South East Asia. Singapore is an island country located off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, and is home to a melting pot of cultures comprising it’s population of nearly 5 million people. The name Singapore comes from Singapura, meaning the Lion city, which is why the Nation’s official mascot is the Merlion.

Facilities are world class and tertiary level, offering comprehensive training of a high standard similar to Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

The Health System in Singapore is first class and focuses on Research, Education and Service, to provide the best outcomes for both clinicians and patients. Medical Tourism is also a very impostant industry in Singapore, as it is through many parts of Asia.
Singapore is located just north of the Equator, and offers a stable tropical climate year round. Singapore is a place where east meets west, and has everything you could want, and more. Though physically quite small, Singapore is an economic giant, and has been Southeast Asia's most modern city for over a century. The city blends Malay, Chinese, Arab, Indian and English cultures and religions. This unique ethnic "recipe" affords a wide array of cultural and culinary opportunities from which to choose.
Singapore offers delectable cuisine and great shopping! The country includes the island of Singapore and 58 or so smaller islands. Because of its efficient and determined government, Singapore has become a flourishing country that excels in trade and tourism and is a model to developing nations. The capital city, also called Singapore, covers about a third of the area of the main island.
Singapore's tropical climate welcomes both leisure and business travelers year round. The island republic's excellent infrastructure enables residents to enjoy everything it has to offer in a safe, clean and green environment. Award winning Changi Airport provides airlinks to practically every destination around the world. The train and subway systems are clean, fast and efficient.
In the city, there is no need for a car as public transportation is excellent, and walking is a good way to explore the city. Since the city is only 60 miles (100k) from the equator, the tropical temperatures do not vary much and rainfall is fairly evenly distributed through the year.
Singapore's progress over the past three decades has been remarkable, yet the island has not been overwhelmed by development. Modern skyscrapers mix comfortably with much older buildings.
Today Singapore boasts the world's second busiest port after Rotterdam, minimal unemployment, and a super efficient infrastructure. Almost the entire population lives in upscale new apartments. Singapore is a clean, safe place to visit and live, its amenities are second to none and its public places are smoke-free and hygienic.
