  • If you like Nanyang Culture and have a history of studying Nanyang people, it is recommended that you can visit Nanyang Polytechnic University for an informed tour. The south is a historic school in Singapore, which can be seen as a sign of the expansion of the ethnic groups in the Nanyang Star and other fields.
