Tucked beneath Malaysia is beautiful Singapore, a prosperous and diverse country of nearly 6 million people. Singapore is made up of one large, main island and many smaller islets, over 60, in all.
Because Singapore is only located one degree north of the equator, the temperature is fairly stable throughout the year, warm and humid.
Singapore has a tumultuous relationship with its northern neighbor, Malaysia, having had an on again, off again relationship for the past several decades. Today, Singapore is one of the most competitive economies in the world; fast growing and innovative.
While visiting Singapore be sure to hit the city streets, where there is so much to do and see. After a day of shopping and diving, go to some of the many gardens which offer a cooling reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the city. The best three are the National Orchid Garden, the Gardens by the Bay, and the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Singapore’s international airport and harbors are some of the busiest in the world, so coming into the country is a casual affair.
Travelling throughout Singapore is just as easy, as the Mass Rapid Transit system is an incredibly efficient way to get around.
