The Southernmost Point of the Asian Continent

As part of a short day trip to Singapore from Kuala Lumpur I visited a location that calls itself "The Southernmost Point of the Asian Continent". This is on Sentosa Island in Singapore but actually I think it is not exactly at the very southernmost part of Sentosa. You might ask, "How can an island contain the southermost part of the Continent?". Well it makes this claim because it is connected to Malaysia via bridges from Sentosa to Singapore proper and thence to Malaysia - so you could walk from here to the continent proper.

It is only about 139km north of the Equator - being at latitude N 1° 14' approximately.

Here are a few photos from this place.

And a video of the area:
