Singapore which occupies 63 islands, is one of the smallest countries in Southeast Asia which, thanks to its modern architecture and rich tropical vegetation occupies a special place among tourists around the world.
The climate in Singapore is equatorial, hot and humid throughout the year.

The symbol of Singapore is a lion with the body of the fish (or fish with a lion’s head), whose sculpture on the coast Marina Bey every day attracts thousands of tourists, and because of it the city called “Lion City”
