ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Singapore's growth in the hospitality industry. The city has constructed new skyscrapers and renovated a number of historic buildings. The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has been working closely with private developers to ensure that monuments are preserved and used as hip restaurants or boutique hotels rather than being demolished. The National Museum of Singapore is an example of a successful historical facelift.
