Singapore

 

Many parts of Asia are polluted, poor and crowded, but Singapore is one of the wealthier countries in the region. Singapore is a small island country, situated south of Malaysia. Like other countries in this region, it has a tropical climate – dry and hot for part of the rain, warm and rainy for the rest of the year. The island has coastal plains and flat grasslands. Nature reserves protect monkeys, birds and other native animals.

Singapore separated from Great Britain in 1963 and became an independent country in 1965.
