What is the best time to visit Singapore?

Singapore is a year-round destination without much variation in temperature. However, there are various seasons around which you can plan a trip. November - January and June - July is the best time to visit Singapore and also the peak season. The city sees a surge in tourism during the Christmas season and Chinese New year while the Great Singapore Sale begins in June and lasts till the end of July.

If you are a shopping lover or a foodie, then the best time to explore the city is around July when the Great Singapore Sale and the Singapore Food Festival are held. Typically, the climate is hot and humid for all twelve months. Hence there isn't a shoulder season in Singapore although April is a great time to visit, as there aren't heavy showers and it isn't a holiday season.

August to October is the Off-season in Singapore except for mid-September, the rush of tourist increases since September hosts the Singapore Grand Prix. Temperature is slightly higher than the rest of the months, and the rains are continuous. However, hotel rates are cheap and easily negotiable.
