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 are the peak months to visit Singapore. 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 decreases 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.
