About

Singapore officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

Since independence, extensive land reclamation has increased its total size by 23% (130 km2), and its incredible greening policy has covered the island with tropical flora, parks and gardens.
