Sightseeing in Singapore in October
With a fairly consistent weather year round, sightseeing is a great option no matter which month you're here. However, excursions and day trips in Singapore in October are indeed a delight as compared to the other months as the afternoon heat decreases due to the cool breeze from the sea. Start your day with outdoor attractions like Jurong Bird Park and Singapore Zoo, heading to air-conditioned malls like Ngee Ann City in the afternoon to beat the heat and resume with the outdoor activities including the coolest light show, 'SuperTree Grove' Light show held in Gardens by the Bay as the sun goes down.
Hiking in Singapore in October
- Carry an Umbrella for the days when it rains relatively heavy so that you can enjoy everything as usual.
