SINGAPORE

Introduction to Singapore 


Singapore is a unique city state situated nicely on the southern tip of Malaysia. Once considered no more than a stopover to somewhere else, Singapore has emerged as a destination on its own. The Lion City is home to more than 6 million people, making it one of the largest populated city states. 

Singapore has evolved from a small fishing village, most likely founded by the Chinese, to a thriving metropolis with tantalizing food, history, and a booming nightlife. Singapore has been influenced throughout history by the Portuguese, Dutch, Chinese, and the British. Since being released from British influence in 1965, the city has overcome many obstacles and become a popular tourist destination.

Noted for its highly efficient transportation system and its exceptionally clean environment, Singapore offers the world traveler the convenience of bustling city life while surrounded by lush, tropical jungles and picturesque beaches. 

Even though Singapore has a reputation as an expensive city, there are many options for delicious dining and low cost sightseeing. Chinatown and Little India are excellent cost effective choices for sampling Singapore’s many tasty culinary delights.

 

Best time to travel in Singapore 


Singapore’s climate is best described as consistently hot and humid. Throughout recorded weather history, Singapore has never recorded a temperature lower than 19 degrees (C). On a daily basis, temperatures range from 23 degrees (C) to 31 degrees (C). While the climate is characterized by the Northeast and Southwest Monsoons, there is little difference in temperature. The months of December and January offer slightly cooler temperatures, while the months of April and May tend to be the hottest. 

However, it is best to consider the climate as hot, humid, wet, and warm. Tourism is steady throughout the year, so plan travel based on purpose, such as an interesting festival or cultural event, rather than the weather.

Even though Singapore’s weather is unpredictable, travelers may expect to experience as much sunshine as they do rain.
Travelers are urged to hydrate due to the tropical climate, and pack comfortable, lightweight cotton clothing. 
 

 

Flight connections to Singapore

 

Singapore’s Changi Airport is a regional hub, making it easily accessible from Kuala Lampur, Ho Chi Minh City, Ipoh, DaNang, and Hanoi.

 

Typically, flights to Singapore are most expensive in July and August, and around the Christmas, New Year, and Chinese New Year holidays.


Singapore Air, the national airline, has upheld its commitment to excellent service since its inception in the 1940s as Malayan Airlines (http://www.singaporeair.com/).

Vietnam Airlines is a priceworthy option for regional trips, with some fares as low as SGD 40 (http://www.vietnamairlines.com/). Vietnam Airlines is noted as one of the world’s most modern and economically friendly airlines. The airline has positioned itself for planned growth and integration into the global travel market.

Firefly and Air Asia are additional options as lower cost alternatives for flights into Singapore. http://www.fireflyz.com.my/community/why-firefly

Singapore's unique features


Singapore’s multi-cultural history makes this destination unique. Chinese influences abound in the 2 kilometer square area of Chinatown, situated beside the Central Business District. This is an excellent place to experience Singapore’s Chinese heritage through arts, culinary delights, and temples. 

Sri Mariammam Temple, the oldest Hindu temple in Singapore is also located in Chinatown. This is just one of the many different religious influences (Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic, Islamic) which are prevalent in the city. 

Little India, famous for an amazing array of inexpensive foods and souvenirs, is one place where diners are encouraged dig in and eat with their hands.

Singapore offers the diversity of a big city surrounded by unspoiled nature with lush parks and botanical gardens interspersed among the skyscrapers. The abundance of public parks and their ideal location make Singapore the world’s most popular venue for team building walk rallies by public transportation.  

Escape from the busy city pace within a matter of minutes to the famous Singapore Zoo or National Orchid garden, which is home to the most diverse orchid collection around the globe.

Singapore offers nature lovers boundless opportunities to experience the beauty of Sentosa Island or one of the other 63 islands that make up the whole of Singapore. A visit to the island of Pulau Ubin takes visitors back to the 1960s where islanders still live in Kampongs and draw water from a well.

Amongst the history and nature, Singapore offers world class shopping and restaurants, making it the perfect destination for your corporate travel needs.
