From a distance the buildings merge together. Many of the buildings seen here are apartment buildings. These are necessarily high-rise due to the scarcity of land in this island nation-state. In Singapore, the high population density means there are 7257 persons per square kilometer, even more dense than Hong Kong. In comparison, the United Kingdom has 256 persons/ km2, and USA 34 persons/ km2.
While walking the Southern Ridge trek last week, I took this picture from Mount Faber Hill, which at 106m is the third highest hill in Singapore. The buildings may seem to merge, but make no mistake, the population is multicultural and varied.Weekly Photo Challenge: Create Weekly Photo Challenge: Today
