What is Singapore
Singapore is an island-state in Southeast Asia, connected by bridges to Malaysia. Founded as a British trading colony in 1819, since independence it has become one of the world's most prosperous countries, sporting the world's busiest port. Combining the skyscrapers and subways of a modern, affluent city with a medley of Chinese, Indian and Malay influences and a lush tropical climate, with tasty food, good shopping and a happening, vibrant nightlife scene, this Garden City makes a great stopover or springboard into the region.

About Singapore elsewhere
"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."
"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."
"Spotting its potential as a strategic geographical trading post in Southeast Asia, Raffles signed a treaty with Sultan Hussein Shah on behalf of the British East India Company on 6 February 1819 to develop the southern part of Singapore as a British trading post and settlement."
"In 1819, the British made a treaty with Sultan Hussein Shah, then sultan of Singapore, to cede the island to the British East India Trading Company."
"Modern Singapore dates its nascency from the early morning of January 29, 1819, when a representative of the British East India Company, Thomas Stamford Raffles, stepped ashore at Singa Pura (Sanskrit for "Lion City"), as the island was then called, hoping to establish a British trading settlement on the southern part of the Malay Peninsula."
"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."
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.

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.
