When is the best time to travel to Singapore?
Singapore’s climate is best described as consistently hot and humid. Throughout recorded weather history, Singapore has never recorded a temperature lower than 19 degrees (C). On a daily basis, temperatures range from 23 degrees (C) to 31 degrees (C). While the climate is characterized by the Northeast and Southwest Monsoons, there is little difference in temperature. The months of December and January offer slightly cooler temperatures, while the months of April and May tend to be the hottest.
However, it is best to consider the climate as hot, humid, wet, and warm. Tourism is steady throughout the year, so plan travel based on purpose, such as an interesting festival or cultural event, rather than the weather.
Even though Singapore’s weather is unpredictable, travelers may expect to experience as much sunshine as they do rain.
Travelers are urged to hydrate due to the tropical climate, and pack comfortable, lightweight cotton clothing.
