DescriptionHow was it exactly that Singapore was sold to the British for 60,000 Spanish Dollars? Find out about the man who did it, and the man who forced him into it. Few people remember the sultans that used to rule Singapore but we'll share with you their stories. The old Royal Palace, the Sultan Mosque, the Tombs of the Malayan Princes: they all carry an air of royalty that disappeared all too quickly. Uncover a curious blend of Malay folk traditions and Islam in the legends of the mysterious keris(dagger), exotic perfumes, and the story of a faith that is so often misunderstood. Don't miss this hidden cultural enclave where Singapore's indigenous culture still thrives!
