Skyline

A view from one of the rail stations shows Singapore as an international city. The largest international harbor and free standing sculpture are among the many things that make the locals proud.

Merlion

Half lion, half fish, mythology says that the Merlion came out of the sea to protect the people of Singapore from a terrible storm. It's been a symbol of the country ever since.

Old Charm 

I was walking somewhere between Chinatown and downtown when I came across this old world looking street. Singapore's primary influence comes from China, Malaysia, and India -- then everywhere else.

Sentosa Point

'The islet you are standing on is 136 km north of the Equator and is described as the Southernmost Point of Continental Asia.

The islet is linked to Asia via a suspension bridge to Sentosa Island, which is linked to mainland Singapore by a 710 meter long

My reflection can be seen in the marker.
