For most students on their first travel outside of the United States, the hardest part of adjusting to foreign territory is the language barrier. But for students traveling to Singapore, adapting to the country is significantly easier because the official business language of Singapore is English. Not only is it easier for Americans to adjust, but Singapore is extremely safe with one of the lowest crime rates in the world. If you're still not sold, Singapore has been ranked by World Bank Group as the number one country for Doing Business in both 2014 & 2015.
