Best Time to Visit Singapore - Weather, Temperature & Season Information
One can visit Singapore at any time of the year, if one can bear the heat and the humidity. However, since rains can be heavy and the wind blows at high speeds, it may be a good idea to avoid traveling between mid-November to early March. If you do happen to visit Singapore during this period, be sure to arm yourself with umbrellas, raingear and a good pair of waterproof boots to protect your feet. If damp conditions are not suited to your health, look for accommodation on the eastern side of the Bukit Timah Hill. Conditions here are usually drier and hotter than on the western side.
Note that though the city is crowded and very expensive during national holidays and popular events, visiting Singapore during festivals is a great experience. Singapore’s food, music and cultural festivals are colorful and bursting with community feeling. It’s a great feeling to participate in the parades and processions that take place during Chinese New Year and other festivals. The Great Singapore Sale takes place between July and October. You’ll find some fabulous bargains and not-to-miss deals during this time. The city does face a bit of a lull in tourist traffic during this sale, so it’s a good chance to visit Singapore then.
