Travel Tips to Singapore

If you currently live in a dryer or colder part of the world, the heat and humidity combo will come as a bit of a shock if you’ve never experienced it before.  Within 5 minutes of walking outside or being in an unairconditioned car or building you will notice the heat and feel your clothes start to get moist and sticky. 

The tropical Singapore weather will feel uncomfortable at first, but you WILL get used to it. There are over 5 million Singaporeans who deal with it every day. Besides, most buildings in Singapore have the air conditioning blasting so you can always duck inside a coffee shop or mall to escape the heat.

My advice is to plan some indoor activities for the hottest part of the day such as scoping out one of the newest malls, sampling local cuisine, grabbing an original Singapore Sling at the Long Bar, or unwinding with a massage at one of the many massage parlors in town.

Then during the evening when the temperature in Singapore has gone down a bit, it’s always nice to take a stroll down Clarke Quay (pronounced “Clark Key”) when the riverfront restaurants and bars come alive, or head over to Marina Bay to take in the amazing view of the Singapore skyline along the water’s edge.
Weather in Singapore can also go from warm and sunny to rainy in a matter of minutes so be prepared and bring a cheap, lightweight poncho or umbrella.
As I’ve said before, the climate of Singapore is pretty consistent year round. That being said, the best time to visit Singapore weather-wise is usually February through March, or June through October to avoid the hotter months and monsoon season.
