Singapore crowned the happiest country in Asia

Clap along if you know what happiness is to you, because I'm happy, happy, happy.

Now that I have got that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day (you're welcome) I can tell you why you are singing it. Well, chances are that you are in Singapore and if you are, you are meant to be happy!

According to a recent UN World Happiness Report which surveyed people across 150 countries- Singapore came top of the smile polls in Asia mainly due to its low crime rates, excellent health care, political stability and other various factors including transport and housing options. Those factors made it number one in Asia and impressively, number 25 in the world in terms of happiness. Our neighbour Malaysia came in at 55, Thailand at 60, China at 65 and Indonesia at 76.
