When is the Best Time to Visit Singapore?

Singapore has a tropical climate and is hot and humid throughout the year. The country only has two seasons – wet and dry. While the wet season lasts from September to February, the dry season lasts from March to August. The weather can range from hot and sunny days to torrential rains within a few days. But don’t let the weather spoil your plans thankfully, air conditioners are installed everywhere, including public places and transportation. No wonder the country is called an air-conditioned nation. Here are a few things you must know about the best time to visit Singapore:

While the wet season lasts from September to February, November to January is particularly wet; it rains almost daily and could last for a long time. If you’re visiting Singapore for shopping, this is the best time to shop for affordable Singapore travel packages.

The dry season is usually the peak tourist season, especially from February to April. You can enjoy all the outdoor activities without worrying about rain. While it does rain during these months, it could be intermittent and not last long. Irrespective of when you’re travelling, don’t forget to carry a lightweight umbrella with you. There are plenty of things to do and experience in Singapore during this time.

What Are the Things to Do in Singapore?

Take a Tour of China Town

Chinatown is the best place to experience the rich cultural heritage of Singapore. While the place is famous for its Chinese streetside restaurants and shops, it is also the only place where a mosque, temple, and Buddhist temple co-exist harmoniously in the same street. The Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum is an iconic place that gets its name from a canine tooth that apparently belonged to the Buddha. The Mariamman Temple is dedicated to Mariamma, the goddess believed to cure epidemics and diseases. It is believed to have been built around 1872 by South Indian immigrants from Cuddalore and Nagapattinam. Similarly, Masjid Jamae was built by Tamil Muslims.

Chinatown is equally famous for its street shops, where you can buy affordable electronic gadgets, souvenirs, toys, spices, clothes, and even rare antiques. You’ll need some bargaining skills and patience to shop in Chinatown.

The place is equally popular for its hawker stalls selling authentic Chinese food, including egg tarts, kaya toast, Hainanese chicken, laksa, and char kway teow.

Take a Tour of Little India

Little India is one of Singapore’s most colourful and chaotic districts, lined with streetside vendors selling everything from authentic South Indian food and flower garlands to bangles, sarees and traditional Indian sweets. The place is famous for its temples, the Veeramakaliamman Temple, the Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple, and the Sakya Muni Buddha Gaya Temple. It is also the best place to sample Singaporean fish head curry and roti prata. Don’t miss hoppers, a South Indian and Sri Lankan delicacy paired with flavourful curry. And if you’re a vegetarian, don’t miss Komala Vilas, a family-run restaurant famous for its South Indian vegetarian cuisine. The House of Tan Teng Niah is the last surviving Chinese villa in Little India. The Mustafa Centre in Little India is the best place for bargain shopping, selling over 300,000 items. Serangoon Road is also an excellent place for bargain hunting. You can wander around the streets selling a variety of things, ranging from colourful jewellery to cheap souvenirs and handbags to accessories.

If you’ve never seen a wet market in Singapore, visit the Tekka Centre to marvel at the amazing display of fish, seafood, meat and poultry. With over 200 stalls, this is one of the largest wet markets in Singapore, where you can hear hawkers selling their wares in various languages – ranging from Hokkien and Mandarin to Tamil and Malay. The centre also has a dedicated fruit and fresh vegetable market, a food court, and a shopping area.

Sample Some of the Best Street Food in Singapore

The many streets of Singapore are a melting place for different cultures, viz., the Chinese, Malay, and Indian. Street food is so etched into the country’s culture and heritage that it was inscribed on the 2020 UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In fact, this is one of the very few countries that has kept its hawker culture alive. Besides Hainanese chicken, iconic Singaporean delicacies include char kway teow, chilli crabs, nasi lemak, beef rendang, and satay.

Things to Buy in Singapore

It’s a misconception that Singapore is an expensive shopping destination. You can shop to your heart’s content if you know where and how to shop. For instance, electronic gadgets, electrical items, watches, dry fruits, etc., are cheap and some of the best things to buy in Singapore if you’re on a budget. While Orchard Road and Marina Bay are famous for malls selling high-end luxury brands, China Town and Little India are the best place for budget shopping, provided you know how to haggle. The Little India Arcade in Singapore is a great place to shop for spices, textiles, cutlery, etc., while Arab Centre sells handicrafts and accessories. If you’re looking for unique souvenirs, head to Katong Square Market.
