Is Singapore Part of China?


No, Singapore is not a part of China. Geographically, Singapore is located in a part of Asian mainland known as the Malay Peninsula. The Malay Peninsula is about 1,900 miles (3,000km), to the south, of central China. And in between China and the Peninsula are a number of other countries such as Laos, Burma and most notably Thailand.

Then Singapore itself is situated all the way at the southern point of the Malay Peninsula.  Thus the Lion City is approximately 2,400 miles (3,800km) from central China.

Singapore is not a part of China in a political sense neither. Rather Singapore’s colonial history features the nation being formally dominated by Britain for nearly 150 years.
