Tourism had been an important sector of Singaporeseconomy for more than a decade, averaging 16 percent oftotal foreign exchange earnings and 6 percent of GDPbetween 1980 and 1985. Tourist arrivals had dropped sharplyin 1983, however, the first decline in over twenty years. Thedecrease resulted both from the regional and world economicdownturn at that time and from travel restrictions institutedby neighboring countries to preserve their own foreignexchange. Observers noted also that Singapore was losingits "oriental mystique and charm." In its effort to build amodern city, it had torn down old buildings and curtailedtraditional street activities, aspects considered by tourists tobe part of Singapores attractionAlthough increasing the absolute number of visitor arrivalswas the main target, a further aim was to attract the high-spending, business visitors attending conventions and tradeexhibitions, which Singapore hosted in large numbers.

Malaysias history starts generally around the establishment of the Malacca sultanate. During the 13th century, it was renowned as a major port for traders from both east and west.
The history of Malaysia is a relatively recent offshoot of thehistory of the wider Malay-Indonesian world”. It is so becauseanthropologists and historians could see very little aspectsculturally and linguistically, to distinguish today’s Malaysianterritories from the lands of the Malay Archipelago.According to their research, today’s division of the Malayworld into six different states-- Malaysia, Indonesia,Philippines, Singapore, Brunei and East Timor – is largely theresult of external influences, like the Hindu India, the IslamicMiddle East and Christian Europe (west), China and Japan(north-east). Besides, the most direct shipping route passingthrough the Strait of Malacca, Malaysia has naturally been amelting pot of trade routes and cultures. Thus, it has beenfound out that the geographical position of Malaysia hasliterally made it difficult for the Malay people to resist foreigninfluence and domination.
