The best time to visit Singapore, also known as "The Lion City,"
A lot of different kinds of people live in Singapore, and the weather is the same way. If you want to go to this Southeast Asian paradise soon, we can tell you when is the best time to go. Now that things are finally under control and the pandemic should be a bad memory at this point, we’re ready to go. We should finally visit all the places we’ve been meaning to, and Singapore should be at the top of your list.
This well-known city lives up to its name: it has a lot of culture, traditions, shopping, food, and other good things. But when is the best time to visit this beautiful city of lions?
Most of the time, Singapore's weather is too hot to handle.
Start with two words: hot and humid. Singaporeans have a joke that their national dress should have been a singlet, shorts, and slippers. But this is also good for Indian tourists because we are not only used to the heat and humidity, but we thrive in it. We do this all the time!
The main city of Singapore is the hottest place on this island. It can be a degree hotter than other places. The coldest temperature recorded was 19 degrees Celsius, and the warmest was 37 degrees Celsius. During the monsoon, it also rains a lot in the Lion City (June to September, December to March)
Most nights are cooler in the Central-North, while the south-west and south-east have warmer nights. South East of the island is where you can find cooler weather.
On this island, winter is mostly a joke and a myth, but November and December do have slightly cooler weather. If you want to go to the beach, April is the best month to visit the island.
Singapore Weather and Seasons
Singapore’s weather and seasons are very different from India’s. There are two types of these: wet and dry. From March to August, there is a dry season, and from September to February, there is a wet season.
Because of global warming and pollution, the weather in Singapore has random jumps in temperature. This changes the length of the seasons and how long they last. During the wet season, rain can come on quickly and be scary, so it’s best to carry an umbrella. In the dry season, the heat and humidity will make you want to grind your teeth. The best way to see Singapore in all its glory is to find the right balance.
Peak Season – December to June
The high season, or the most-anticipated season, runs from the beginning of December to the end of June. The weather is mostly nice, and you can get a beautiful tan at the beach or just walk around the city without worrying about the moody skies of Singapore. The Chinese Lunar New Year is usually in January or February. It is a beautiful festival that draws lots of tourists and locals to the Lion City. If you want to visit Singapore during this season, you should definitely book your tickets and place to stay in advance. Most countries have a certain “peak” season, but Singapore does not. During shopping or holiday seasons, the crowd grows or goes away.
Shoulder Season – January to May
Singapore doesn’t really have a shoulder season, but the time between mid-January and May is thought of as a makeshift shoulder season. If you want to avoid the large number of tourists and locals, April is the best time to visit Singapore (Singapore has no public holidays in April, making the exploration easier.)
Low Season – August to October
If you are brave enough to face the worst of Singapore’s weather, the low season can be good for you. August through October are usually slow months in the Lion City, but the Singapore Grand Prix in mid-September is a rare exception. During these months, Singapore will be much more humid, and heavy rain may dampen your spirits. During Singapore’s low season, though, it’s easy to get better deals on shopping and hotels.
