The shining “Lion City” has turned 49: meet Singapore in timelapse


Modernity and ancient culture meet gracefully in the shining “Lion City” (as “Singapura” can be literally translated from Malaysian language), which turned 49 in 2014 and has received a fantastic time-lapse tribute by Marklin Ang.

Singapore is a rather small Country. In fact, it is just a insignificant tiny red dot on the map. Despite this, Singapore has four major races living harmoniously in this tiny city-state, and is a well developed country.

Having just celebrated its 49th birthday, Singapore has come a long way and developed drastically. Tall skyscrapers, high-rise buildings, and everything modern can be found in this “Lion City”. Despite its modernity, Singapore has preserved its cultures and heartlands accordingly, resulting in a healthy blend of nostalgia and anticipation.



Marklin Ang has worked on this video for over one year during his spare time, bringing us this amazing 5-minute long trip to Singapore!
