Quoting itenerant

hah mine is really sad... North - Istanbul, south - Singapore or Malaysia - both claim to be the southernmost tip of mainland Asia, interestingly. But ive just been to the lowest point on earth floating in the dead sea

Singapore, being an island, is certainly not part of the mainland!

True, true... but you forget the causeway . so technically... maybe they do have a claim ;)

And thats what they put in a huge sign on Sentosa island anyway. And we have the same one in Tanjong Piai, that little peninsula in Johor...

Nah... the causeway is man-made, built in 1924. So it's not naturally connected to the mainland. And to put the sign on another island that's disconnected from the main island...

furthest south, probably somewhere in the Catlins/ New Zealand.
