Singapore Geography, Climate, and Weather

Singapore is made up of a low-lying Singapore Island and 58 smaller islands within its territorial water. 50% of the land area are urban areas while parkland; reservoirs, plantations and open military areas occupy 40%.
The whole island measures approximately 42km from east to west and 23km from north to south at its widest points. While there are built-up, high-density areas all around the island, the main city area is in the south, built along the shores of the Singapore River, a 'recreational' river, offering waterfront housing, riverside dining, and water-sports facilities to the present and future generations of Singaporeans.
Jurong (to the west of the island) is an industrial area with a number of tourist attractions. There are colonial home areas in the East Coast, a major beach park and the international airport.
The northeast is the location of huge modern housing developments while the central northern part has most of Singapore's undeveloped land and what is left of its forest. Singapore is connected to another mainland, Malaysia, by a 1-kilometer-long causeway.
According to current plans, land reclamation and housing developments will mould and change Singapore's geography dramatically.

Singapore's temperature rarely drops below 20 degrees Celsius, even at night, and usually climbs up to 30 degrees Celsius during the day making it hot and humid all year-round. Eventually, humidity is high at around the 75% mark.
Singapore is wettest from November to January and is driest from May to July; the difference between the two unfortunately is barely visible.
And due to Singapore's near proximity to the equator, it gets plenty of sun throughout the year.
