The study first examines the structure of tourism in this island state. The most outstanding feature is the short duration of stay of the visitors. There are now attempts to make the town more attractive for longer stays. As scenic and cultural attractions are almost completely lacking, it offers recreation facilities in the short-range leisure zone and in residential areas. Then the share of Singapore's tourism in the Gross Domestic Product, in the services and in the balance of payment is discussed, and finally its importance as to the creation of working places is emphasized.
