Singapore is a tropical paradise full of cultural experiences and hot weather. The average temperature year-round is between 27°C and 35°C (80°F to 95°F), with humidity levels being high. Be prepared with sunscreen before you visit!

Rainfall also tends to be frequent throughout the year, with the wettest months being November to January and the driest months being June to July.

Festivals are an integral part of Singaporean life, so if you want to experience the culture there are plenty of exciting events throughout the year; such as Chinese New Year, Thaipusam (a Hindu festival) and Eid al-Fitr (a Muslim holiday). These events can be great opportunities to learn more about Singapore’s diverse population and experience something out of the ordinary.

The peak tourist season in Singapore is from December to March. This means that prices are higher than usual, and hotel rooms and attractions are busier due to increased competition during this time. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more peaceful experience then visiting during the shoulder season (April to June or September to November) is a great option too. Temperatures during these months are still pleasant while prices tend to be lower since there’s less competition for accommodation.

Overall, no matter what your preferences are or what you hope to do while visiting Singapore, there’ll always be something enjoyable for everyone!Just remember that preparation is important – so make sure you bring all your sunscreen and plan ahead before getting on your flight!
