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.
