Singapore is an island city-state on the Southern point of Malaysia. It has a multicultural population and a tropical climate to boot. It’s a city that has seen many changes over the coming years and has fast become a place that people want to visit. Be that on their way to other destinations like Australia, or just for a holiday itself.
Which is why I thought now would be an ideal time to sing the praises of Singapore and give you a little insight into the city and what you could do when you get there. Perhaps it will inspire you to consider this destination for a future holiday.
Is it easy to get to?
Singapore was once known as a sterile stopover point for further destinations, meaning it is actually very easy to get to. With a huge airport offering international flights, and quick Singapore airport transfers you will be right in the heart of the action in next to no time at all.
What is the weather like all year round?
It has a tropical climate, meaning there are more preferential times of the year to travel to Singapore. It is hot and humid all year round, but the hottest months would be in the height of Summer during June and July. This is where it may also feel hazy so it might be worth avoiding at those times of the year especially.
However, you may want to consider other times of year to avoid. There are two monsoon seasons in Singapore, the Northeast monsoon, and the Southwest monsoon. The Northeast monsoon season is December through to march and the Southwest monsoon period is June to December. Although rain is an everyday occurrence anyway, those might be worth avoiding due to excessive rainfall.
What to do in the city?
There is plenty to see and do in Singapore, so a visit here will surely not disappoint. If you love your artwork, then a visit to the National Gallery should be high on your priority list. Although things like the Singapore Zoo, or even taking in the high tech sights of the Gardens By The Bay. Or just find yourself relaxing in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. With plenty of bars and restaurants with a range of different choices on offer, you are bound to find something to tantalize your taste buds.
Will it suit my budget?
Singapore will certainly offer you all kinds of accommodation to suit your budget. For something is purse-friendly to a high-rise luxury hotel, there will be something to match your needs. The currency used in Singapore is the Singapore Dollar.
You will be please to know that tipping isn’t a customary thing in this city, although in some instances you may want to anyway. Although, it is strictly prohibited at the airport. Cost of living isn’t too high either, making your money and daily expenses stretch.
I hope this has offered you some insight into Singapore and may inspire you to consider it as a destination to visit in the future.
