Singapore consists only of one main island and 63 other tiny islands. Most of these
islands are uninhabited. It is among the 20 smallest countries in the world, with a total
land area of only 682.7 square kilometres. Apart from Monaco, Singapore is the most
densely populated country in the world, with 6,430 people per square kilometre.
The island is warm and humid all year round, with only slight variations between the
average maximum of 31 degrees Celcius and minimum of 23 degrees Celcius. Rain falls throughout the year, with more consistent rain coming during the monsoon season from November to January. Showers are usually sudden and heavy, but also brief and refreshing.
Unity in diversity is the philosophy of this cosmopolitan city. Although geography has
played a part in the success of Singapore, its mainstay is its people. Lacking natural
resources, Singapore's strength is its hardworking, adaptable and resilient population.
Singapore's population of almost four million comprises 77% Chinese, 14% Malays, 8%
Indians and 1% Eurasians and people of other descent. The original inhabitants were
Malay fishermen, but after the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles and the establishment of a
British trading post, Singapore became a magnet for migrants and merchants. Seeking a
better life for themselves and their families, they came from the southern provinces of
China, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Ceylon and the Middle East. Though inter-marriages have taken place over the years, each racial group within Singapore has retained its own
cultural identity while developing as an integral part of Singapore community.
There are four official languages in Singapore: Malay, Mandarin, Tamil and English.
English is the language of business and administration, and is widely spoken and
understood. Most Singaporeans are bilingual, and speak their mother tongue as well as
English. Malay is the national language.參考資料： 非常新加坡 www.visitsingapore.com
