About Asia elsewhere
"The British had first established a presence in the Straits of Melaka (now called Malacca) in the 18th century, when the East India Company set out to secure and protect its line of trade from China to the colonies in India."
"The British East India Company, in its rivalry with the Dutch East Indies Company, sought to control the Strait of Malacca, the narrow passage between Indonesian Sumatra and the Malay peninsula."
"Madras was one of the first outposts of British East India Company."
"In 1826 Singapore Penang and Malacca were combined as the Straits Settlements to form an outlying residency of the British East India Company; in 1867 the Straits Settlements were made a British Crown Colony an arrangement that continued until 1946."

Well-appointed grass hut on the beach, nice pools, great food and service. (More hotel-like accommodations also available.) Prices on the high side for Indonesia but reasonable for NA visitors. Weekdays it's lovely and quiet - we were told the weekends are on the hectic side. The main negative was the aggressive mosquitoes - be sure to bring the Deet.

Costs you about $30 per adult. The 30 minutes ride can be ordered with drinks and service too. I thought it was worth it. You just have to decide if youll take it day- or nighttime. The city lights are on their best when the sun is setting.
On my way to Australia I had a refreshing stop in Singapore to see some Finnish friends. The whole trip idea was to stay away from the hotels and couchsurf to the limits!
The photo is from the 15th floor balcony in River Valley. The climate was constant +31C days and nights. I didn't even see any rain showers although people were sure I would get wet every day.
