practices, and modernization trends, religious traditions, ethnic identities,

The modernization of Singapore is stunning to see. Singapore has transformed
itself from a third-world, swampy island to a first-class, modern city that
serves as a regional hub for corporations, with its own high tech centers,
and biomedical facilities. The class will also visit Kuala Lumpur. KL is a
fast-rising city that has redefined itself with looming skyscrapers, stellar
cuisine and the Malaysian capital has emerged as one of Southeast Asia’s
most alluring metropolises. The visit to Thailand will be Phuket;
Thailand’s largest island. Phuket is changing at breakneck speed and the
island's infrastructure, and population are growing.
