When is the best time to go to Singapore?

The city-state of Singapore can be visited all year since as with the omnipresence of rain and heat throughout the entire year, it is difficult to focus on a period better than another. In order to be able to walk the streets, visit the parks and other amusement centers, avoid the month of December as it is overall very rainy. If one has a preference for cultural events, it is possible to coincide the visit with the Chinese New Year, in early February. It is important however to remember to book your accommodations in advance as the peak rush that this event generates causes hotels and transportations to fill drastically. The months of June and July are sure to attract the interest of Asian food lovers, as the culinary festivals are held in Singapore during this period. The rest of the year is also punctuated with various interesting activities, the first as remarquable as the next. Choosing the best time to visit Singapore depends on what the traveller expects from their trip.

This hot climate persists throughout the year and intensifies once May arrives, continuing until September. Throughout this period of time, the capital, Singapore, is struck by what is known as the stroke of Sumatra, which presents itself in the form of very heavy but very short thunderstorms. These can affect the island until the month of October and sometimes start as early as the month of April.
