The buzz of multicultural Singapore will stay with you, long after you leave. It’s a thriving metropolis, where global finance gurus come to chat business, but also where a melting pot of Chinese, Malay, Indian and European influences join together. The ‘Lion City’ does futuristic well, but diverse even better. You’ll find it in the green Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, in the temples and food outlets of Chinatown and Little India, and in the 19th century markets. Its humid climate also offers an opportunity to soak up that warmth you’ve been craving – sip Singapore Slings in the sunshine, shop along Orchard Road or among the boutique enclaves in Haji Lane, soak up the air-con in one of the luxury resorts, or head to Sentosa for some family time; we’re talking beaches and theme parks aplenty. And, with 2019 marking the island nation's Bicentennial – 200 years since Sir Stamford Raffles arrived here – there's truly never been a better time to visit Singapore.

When to Go to Singapore
Most destinations claim it, but Singapore really is somewhere you can visit year-round. Sitting between the first and second parallels, its location close to the equator means that the Lion City’s hot and humid climate is fairly consistent from month to month. In fact, it only has two seasons: wet and dry. The island city-state is busiest during the local school holidays (Jun-Jul and Nov-Dec), but otherwise, there’s never really a bad time to explore. For more information, see our when to go to Singapore guide.
