Singapore is a tiny country located on a small island in Southeast Asia, where there is no shortage in the population, and great places to visit.

On the other hand, Singapore is full of exotic in flora, fauna and traditions that have been shaped by Chinese, Malaysian, Indian influence.
There is no time of the year, which would not suit to visit Singapore. You just need to take an umbrella, because pleasant rain cools country territory almost daily, and sunglasses, which will save from the constant bright sun. The most ‘cold’ months are December and January, when the temperature drops to 25 degrees. The rest of the time, it is around the mark 30.

Right next to it is the Museum of Civilization, the other object, which is to meet. History lovers should not miss the sight of the Singapore City Gallery, the oldest part of the city, where you can personally get acquainted with the fascinating traditions of the local population.
Toy Museum was created by Chang Yang Fa, a passionate collector, who collected and gave the city more than 50,000 exhibits. They fascinate not only children, but also every adult, especially because the entrance is only $ 5. And another colorful attraction is National Orchid Garden in a local botanical garden.
