Business Centre in Singapore at sunset. Due to the humid climate there are always great clouds here, and as a consequence there are captivating sunrises and sunsets here too. On the left side in the distance you can see the Singapore port. It is world’s largest and busiest port.
Singapore is a well-developed country. It has a highly developed and successful free-market economy. Singapore is one of the world’s leading business centres and a major destination for foreign investment. Anti-corruption laws are well enforced. Singapore has most open economy for international trade and investment.
Singapore has the 40th largest economy in the world while Singapore is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, with a total land area of only 682.7 square kilometres.
Singapore has the largest port in the world. A huge number of ships are waiting for their turn to come into the port. It seems like this is not a reality, but a computer game. Invading force on many ships is coming to the shore and getting ready to attack. Just about the great battle to begin. The action takes place not on the Earth but on the another planet.
At the centre of the photo you can see the Park “Gardens by the bay”. If you take a look on the left side of the picture you will see The Conservatory Complex. It comprises two cooled conservatories – the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. Very extraordinary human-made sights – strongly recommend to visit if you are going to Singapore.
1. These conservatories won “World Building of the Year” Award at World Architecture Festival 2012.
2. Flower Dome is the worlds largest glasshouse without columns.
Singapore Aquarium is the largest one in the world, as the information by the cash desk says. Besides the Aquarium there is an excellent Maritime Museum, that tells us about the development of navigation in Asia. Children are just happy to visit this museum! There are so many different awesome things that you can touch and pull. It is fun place for kids. When I was young I would love to visit such a museum.
By the way! This shot was made on the last day of the year 2012.
New York City (786 sq km) is slightly larger than Singapore and Tokyo (2,187 sq km) is three times bigger.
