Introduction

I am fond of travelling and always want to learn about foreign culture, land and history. So I always try to collect new information whenever I meet a new person.

Here I would like to talk about a country which I want to explore. The country is Singapore.

How you know about it?

Singapore located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, about 85 miles north of the equator. It consists of a diamond shape. It is the largest port in Southeast Asia and one of the busiest in the world.

Singapore is in the equatorial (near the equator/ hot)monsoon region of Southeast Asia its climate is characterized by uniformly high temperatures. The average temperature varies from about 27° C in June to 25° in January. Maximum population in this country is from Chinese. Singapore has the most advanced economy in Southeast Asia.

Tourism has become increasingly crucial to Singapore’s economy. Singapore’s central location in Southeast Asia and its excellent air-transport facilities have been augmented by massive investments in hotels and shopping centres. I collected all this information from the internet, but I want to experience it in reality.

There are many ways through which people can learn about the new culture and country.
