When to Go
February – April
Cool and breezy are 2 words that are not used to describe Singapore. This city is generally hot and humid, with soaring temperatures in the Summer and rain throughout the Winter.

The best time to visit is after the rain stops and before the heat kicks up, generally February to April.

There are fewer public holidays in this time frame so exploring the city is easier.

The Gardens by the Bay
Travelers know Singapore by its Gardens by the Bay.

Call up any image online and you’re sure to see the sparkling Supertrees glittering by the still water.

This is a place not to miss.

Gardens by the Bay is a stunning nature park featuring 3 waterfall gardens, 1 of which houses massive Supertrees that you can walk between via suspended walkways.

Time your visit to the Cloud Forest to see the vegetation-covered mountain engulfed in mist, and be sure to pose in front of the waterfall.

If you have not had enough, go over to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO site that features thousands of orchids and other tropical vegetation.

Asia’s Melting Pot
Sing. is known for its shining downtown skyline, is also home to several neighborhoods that offer a tour through the best of multiple Asian cultures.

From the Hindu temples of Little India to the paper lanterns of Chinatown, each neighborhood immerses you in a new corner of Asia.

Between the cultural enclaves you can find a neighborhood to fit your style: quiet and calm, young and hipster, or elegant and historic.

Each region boasts shops, restaurants, and decor to fit your travel style.

Out of the City
Traveling with children is not a problem.

Outside the main island lies an entertainment center better than Disneyland. Sentosa Island has everything you need to entertain your children and yourself for days.

From a thrilling water park, to Universal Studios Singapore, to stunning beaches, there is plenty here to capture your attention.

Or the world’s largest public collection of Southeast Asian art in a beautifully restored building at the National Gallery.

Shopping

Maybe the artsy boutiques and burgeoning designers in shop houses along Haji Lane will entrance you.

Or a high-end mall with a canal running through the middle of the shops. Not too many destinations can boast these experiences.

Enjoy Singapore, it is a fabulous place to visit.
