Fun facts about Singapore

Singapore is made up of one main island and 63 other tiny islands. Most of the islands of the country are uninhabited.

Though there is no scientific explanation for it, it has been seen that more Singaporeans are born in the month of October than any other month of the year.

The symbol of Singapore is 'The Merlion', half-fish and half-lion beast.

Singapore is counted amongst the 20 smallest countries of the world. However, it is the second most densely populated country in the world, after Monaco.

Singapore is the largest exporter of ornamental fish (25% of the world market).

The Fountain of Wealth is the largest fountain of the world and is located at Suntec City in Singapore.
