Best Times to Visit Singapore
The best time to visit Singapore is anytime. The island nation experiences a warm, tropical climate year-round with daily highs in the 80s. And with a steady stream of business travelers, the city's hotels are seldom at a loss for occupants and maintain reasonable to high room rates. To avoid exorbitant prices, steer clear of popular events or national holidays like Chinese New Year. But keep in mind, rain is likely year-round.

If Singapore has a definable high season, this is it. Combine winter leisure travelers, the usual business traffic and numerous holiday festivals (Chinese New Year is the big one), and you'll find Singapore brimming with visitors. However, if you travel between November and January, you'll encounter the Northeast Monsoon season, which dumps plenty of rain on the city. November and December in particular see the highest precipitation, averaging 10 and 12 inches between the two months.
Travel during the late summer and early fall to enjoy a slight break in the tourist traffic. You'll also catch the tail end of the Great Singapore Sale, the best time to pick up designer duds. The Southwest Monsoon arrives between June and September, but it is less severe than its Northeast counterpart.
