Wondering when you should plan your visit to Singapore? Read on to find out more about the best period, though don’t worry (spoiler alert head!) there’s always something to offer year-round!
What You Should Know
Singapore is great to visit 365 days of a year with plenty of experiences and adventures for all. It’s generally hot and humid though you will get some showers, so carrying around a portable umbrella will come in handy. Hotel rates can fluctuate, and demand for accommodation can rise during special events or festivals so book ahead; choose properties like PARKROYAL on Beach Road, Singapore which is certified ‘SG Clean’ ensuring safe stays too whenever you visit.
The shoulder seasons (in between the high and low seasons) are generally the best times to head to Singapore with pleasant weather and fewer crowds. One of them would be December to January when temperatures are relatively less at around 24°C, ideal for exploring which will be easy to do when based at a hotel near Bugis MRT. The other period is from March to May when the northeast monsoon dies down, though temperatures will begin to pick up as the months go on.
The high season has two periods as well. February is one of the busiest months since it coincides with the Chinese New Year and some shops and markets may close; however, it’s a great time to witness cultural activities during this festival, while attractions will generally be open. June to July marks another busy period in the country since it’s the time of the school holidays, though you can find some super shopping sales too!
The low season in Singapore generally runs from August to November and rates will be comparatively less; however, as mentioned, it also depends on what events will be taking place, like the Singapore Grand Prix which is usually in September. As it gets closer to November, monsoon rains may become more frequent but not the whole day through. The low season is also when many cultural festivals take place, such as the Mid-Autumn Festival and Hungry Ghost Festival, making it an ideal time to visit as well.
