Images of Singapore, taken in October 2015.
“Singapore is a city-state located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, about 137 kilometres north of the Equator. It consists of the diamond-shaped Singapore Island and some 60 small islets. The main island is separated from Peninsular Malaysia to the north by Johor Strait.
“It is the largest port in Southeast Asia and one of the busiest in the world. It owes its growth and prosperity to its focal position at the southern extremity of the Malay Peninsula, where it dominates the Strait of Malacca, which connects the Indian Ocean to the South China Sea. Once a British colony and now a member of the Commonwealth, Singapore first joined the Federation of Malaysia on its formation in 1963 but seceded to become an independent state on 9 August 1965.”
