When to Visit

Situated only one degree north of the equator, it is not surprising that Singapore has a tropical climate, meaning that it is hot and humid all year round with hardly any variation in temperature between seasons; in fact, Singapore doesn't really have seasons. Travellers to Singapore would be wise to take an umbrella, because rain is abundant and possible all year round, usually falling in heavy downpours. The wettest months are between November and January, which is the monsoon period. There is generally more rain in the west of the island than in the east. Average temperatures range between 79°F (26°C) and 86°F (30°C) during the day, with cooler temperatures at night. April and May are the hottest months. Temperatures in Singapore can reach as high as 95°F (35°C) and the lowest recorded temperature in the country was 67°F (19°C) in 1934. The air-conditioning in most buildings provides a welcome escape from the heat and humidity but is sometimes so cool that visitors will require light sweaters indoors. Between June and September Singapore may suffer from air pollution due to forest fires in Indonesia.

There is no concrete best time to visit Singapore weather-wise, and it is best to time holidays to coincide with festivals and events that are of interest.

You can start your new year in style in Singapore. Good weather and a plethora of festivals and celebrations take place in Singapore at the start of each year including Chinese New Year and Holi, making this a great time to visit.

Be prepared for the warm weather in Singapore during these months. This is Singapore's dry period which is a result of the scorching weather that the country receives at this time of the year.

Despite the extremely warm summer weather Singapore in the Summer is a great time to visit the country. There is always plenty to do in Singapore but it is helped that during this time of the year key events and celebrations are taking place such as Eid al-Fitr, the Great Singapore Sale, Singapore Food Festival and Singapore's National Day.

Colder than the rest of the year that's already past, Singapore during the Autumn is a more pleasant time to visit. A highlight of the period is the annual Singapore Grand Prix where the city streets become the race tracks for the drivers.

Singapore becomes a beacon near the end of the year. Celebrating Deepavali, the Hindu festival of lights, and many a Christmas parades and festivals, there is something to light up anyone's day during this time.
