Celebrating Singapore’s 45th Birthday with Beautiful Photographs

Singapore – known as the Lion city may be just a tiny small dot on the geographical world map, but it has braved several adversities and hardships since its independence on August 9th 1965.

The republic is located on an island off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, 137 kilometres north of the equator, in the Southeast Asian region of the Asian continent. It is separated from Malaysia by the Straits of Johor to its north, and from Indonesia's Riau Islands by the Singapore Strait to its south. A city-state, Singapore is the world's fourth leading financial centre and a cosmopolitan world city.

Celebrating Singapore's 45th Birthday with Beautiful Photographs

Singapore has a current diverse population of nearing 5 million people and growing, Singapore is made up of multi races such as the Chinese, Malays, Indians, Caucasians, and Asians (of various descent). It has the sixth-highest percentage of foreigners in the world.

Singapore has on-going land reclamation projects with ground obtained from its own hills, the seabed, and neighboring countries. As a result, Singapore's land area grew from 581.5 km2 (224.5 sq miles) in the 1960s to 704 km2 (271.8 sq miles) today, and may grow by another 100 km2 (38.6 sq miles) by 2030.

Though a relatively small country, Singapore is alight with vibrance and energy, accompanied by its hospitable citizens.
