Best time to visit Singapore

When is the best time to visit Singapore? Our destination experts share an overview.

The best time to visit Singapore depends on what you wish to see and do. July-September is considered the festive season – a great time to explore the many facets of Singapore. True to its location in Southeast Asia, Singapore generally remains hot and humid all year round with a tropical climate.

The February to April months, between the ‘summers’ and ‘winters’, are quite pleasant. These months too could be considered the best time to visit Singapore as there are plenty of outdoor activities during this time period along with a number of festivals both cultural and traditional. The hottest months are May and June with temperatures often climbing into the high 90s. The wettest months or least favorable time for tourists are between November and January. This is technically the monsoon season when showers can last for long periods of time, though reasonable temperatures still prevail.

  Most Ideal Low Season

OVERVIEW

This is peak monsoon season in Singapore, so expect heavy rain! Temperatures average in the high 70s and rainfall can go up to nearly 250 mm for this month and can also stretch over long periods, so carry plenty of raingear! If you do plan to visit this month, indoor activities would be ideal

WE RECOMMEND

  • Head to the many shopping malls on Orchard Street for your pick of high-end designer wear

OVERVIEW

The rainfall significantly reduces this month though you can expect showers right through. Conditions are warm with temperatures in the early 80s.

WE RECOMMEND

  • Dine at Michelin star restaurants like Odette, Labyrinth and Candlenut
  • Head for a guided tour of Fort Canning Park to understand the military history of the country. You could even catch a play or concert being staged at the time

OVERVIEW

This is one of the better months to visit Singapore as it marks the end of the northeast monsoons. Temperatures remain largely comfortable in the early 80s, making it a good time to head outdoors

WE RECOMMEND

  • From waterparks, to restaurants, shopping options and even a museum, there’s much to explore in Marina Bay

OVERVIEW

Weather conditions remain similar to those in March – so expect it to be warm, humid and wet!

WE RECOMMEND

  • Explore the verdant landscape of the Gardens by the Bay and enjoy the Light and Sound show in the evening!
  • Visit the conservatories at the Gardens and marvel at the gushing indoor waterfall
  • Enjoy a meal at one of the several restaurants at Gardens by the Bay featuring an array of cuisines

OVERVIEW

This is one of the warmest months in Singapore with temperatures touching the high 80s. So carry your sunscreen and sunhat!

WE RECOMMEND

  • Cool down amid the lush surrounds of the Singapore Botanical Garden, an oasis of green in the city

OVERVIEW

Much like May, June remains hot, humid and wet!

WE RECOMMEND

  • Go museum hopping to understand the region’s history and savor stunning art. You can also marvel at dinosaur fossils in the Natural History Museum!

OVERVIEW

Expect steady rain through the month as the southwest monsoon sets in. Temperatures continue to remain in the 80s much like the previous few months.

WE RECOMMEND

  • Shop till you drop at the Great Singapore Sale that usually stretches across the months of June and July
  • Tantalize your tastebuds during the Singapore Food Festival that is usually held during this month

OVERVIEW

There’s hardly any difference between the weather in August and July! It remains hot and humid, though precipitation does slightly increase.

WE RECOMMEND

  • Take a ride on The Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observation wheel (or Ferris wheel) for breathtaking panorama views of the city
  • Feast on Singapore’s Michelin star Chicken Rice at Liao Fan Hawker Chan!

OVERVIEW

Though its the start of autumn, temperatures continue to remain in 80s. Expect a fair bit of rain as well!

WE RECOMMEND

  • Be transported to a world of toucans, turacos, owls and macaws at the Jurong Bird Park
  • Don’t forget to eat Singapore’s famous Chilli Crab!
  • Discover a unique zoo experience at the Singapore Zoo

OVERVIEW

October is a great month to visit Singapore as it’s the month between monsoons! Expect temperatures in the high 80s, with several sunny days.

WE RECOMMEND

  • Discover a unique zoo experience at the Singapore Zoo
  • Visit temples, sample Indian food and enjoy shopping in Little India. During the festival of Diwali, the streets of Little India are beautifully lit up!
  • From Transformers to Jurassic Park rides, alone with several exciting themed experiences, there’s much to do for adults and children at Universal Studios!

OVERVIEW

With the northeast monsoons, expect a fair amount of rain through the hot and humid month, though temperatures usually drop to the high 70s.

WE RECOMMEND

  • From food stalls to shopping, and 200-year-old rich cultural heritage, enjoy exploring Chinatown
  • Explore Sentosa Island with its natural beaches, coastal and cycling trails, theme parks, conservation points, shopping districts, fine dining and more!

OVERVIEW

Expect the rainy conditions to continue: this is one of the wettest months in the country. Do note that Singapore gets extremely busy around Christmas and New Year’s so you will need to make your bookings well in advance. Popular attractions will see huge crowds so expect queues everywhere!

WE RECOMMEND

  • Spend time on Orchard Road, shopping, wining and dining as well as enjoying the Christmas lights!
  • Visit the bustling neon bars and upscale restaurants, boutique shops and pumping nightclubs in the happening Clark Quay

What to Pack

Because of its location, the average temperature in Singapore is steady all year round. It ranges between 77 and 88°F and humidity is high, usually between 70 % – 80 %. With weather that reliable, this is certainly an outdoors destination. We advise coming with some sun-smart gear; a hat, strong sunscreen lotion and most importantly some comfortable, light clothing – including comfortable shoes – for gliding around the country. Just to be on the safe side, rain gear is advised if you are travelling between December and March.

Go to Bhutan now! We don’t believe it is really going to stay this way for long. And it really is unique right now. Building laws require that dwellings be built in the traditional fashion and this makes for the most beautiful and original vistas. No one goes to Bhutan for the cuisine.
