Small but crowded
by Madis Vellamäe
Even though Singapore is one of the 20 smallest countries in the world, it consists only of one main island and 63 (yes, that many!) other islands. But most of these small islands are uninhabited.
The total land area of Singapore is only 682.7 square kilometers - just imagine a 25 km by 25 km square. Even Estonia is over 60 times bigger. But another fact is that Singapore is the second most densely populated country in the world, right after Monaco.
With just a bit over 5.3 million people living in Singapore, it makes up the density of about 7300 people per square kilometer. For example, the density in Tokyo is about 6000 people per square kilometer.
