It has a tropical rainforest climate and it is very humid with frequent rainfall.

The name “Singapore” is the anglicization of the Malay name for Singapura which derives from Sanskrit language Simhapura, literally the Lion City.

When the British arrived in 1819 they soon recognized the island as a natural choice for a new commercial port. In 1824 became a British possession after a treaty with its Sultan.
