    When To Go

    by JaneCajuguiran Written Mar 2, 2010

    Favorite thing: Singapore offers a wide variety of choices to the visitors all year round. But I would suggest going there during the great Singapore Sale which is mostly in June and July, and during December when the whole city becomes really festive. During these dates there is a sale frenzy and everyone just seems to want to get rid of their stuff, throwing discounts and promotional sales here and there.

    Personally, though, I prefer going there in December. There's just a slightly cool breeze at night. Not like the rest of the year when the heat is almost unbearable.

    Climate & Weather

    Favorite thing: At only 135km (85 miles) north of the Equator, the weather is usually sunny with no distinct seasons. However, most rainfall occurs during the north-east monsoon (November to January). Showers are usually sudden and heavy but also brief and refreshing, although humidity is uncomfortably high at this time of year. In summer, forest fires in neighbouring Sumatra can also cause heavy haze.

    Singapore is warm and humid year round, with the temperature almost never dropping below 20C (68F), even at night, and usually climbing to 30C (86F) during the day. Recent times, it even reached till 35C. Humidity is high, mounting over a 75% mark.

    The temperature averages around:
    * 26C (79F) daytime, 24C (76F) at night in December and January
    * 31C (89F) daytime, 26C (80F) at night for the rest of the year.

    November and December is the rainy season. June-August is considered to be the best time to visit, but even then it rains often. Don't let the climate stop you from going, however. Most buildings are air-conditioned (to the point that you may want to take a sweater), and pains have been taken to make everything as comfortable as can be, all things considered. When it does rain, it's generally only for a short period.

    Spectacular thunder storms can occur throughout the year, normally in the afternoons, so it's wise to carry a umbrella at all times, either as a shade from the sun or cover from the rain.

    For those who enjoy the sun and the beach, Singapore is an ideal place for beach lovers, as you get the hot hot sun throughout the year. So when you're in Singapore, just bring along your cooling apparels and hats.

    Climate in Singapore

    Tropical Climate

    Favorite thing: Singapore has a tropical, hot and humid climate throughout the year.

    Temperatures reach a maximum of 32-33°C during the day, falling to a pleasant 23-25°C during evening hours.

    Rainfall is most abundant during the Northeast Monsoon season from November to January. Much of the rain falls in sudden showers.

    Bring an umbrella be it rain or shine.

    Monsoon

    by yuet29 Written Nov 13, 2004

    Favorite thing: There are only two seasons in Singapore. Dry season and rainy season.

    Singapore suffered for monsoon as other SEAsia country such as Malaysia and Thailand. The rain volumn can be very high near end of the year where the rain could fall almost everyday. The monsoon starts during the end of October.

    If you are visiting Singapore during this period, prepare unbrella or rain coat with you. It is never too heavy when you need to use it..

    Umbrella Usage

    by phil_uk_net Written Dec 30, 2003

    Umbrellas

    Fondest memory: Is it raining? No. Many Asians consider light skin good and dark skin bad. Because of this they shy away from the sun and there is a big market in skin whitening products. Umbrellas seem to be used more when it isn't raining as parasols. My brother bought an umbrella and they were cheaper when it was raining. I'm sure it would be the other way round anywhere else in the world but the Singaporeans are a strange bunch. I was talking to a taxi driver one time during the rain and mentioned that the rain must be good for business but he said no. My assumption was that more people get taxis when it is raining but when there is rain the Singaporeans don't go out.
