Why is Singapore so humid

Best time to travel to Singapore

Our travel experts provide an overview of the seasons and the best time to travel.

Due to its geographic location in Southeast Asia and the tropical climate, Singapore remains hot and humid all year round. The seasonal differences are therefore small, and therefore the best travel time cannot be clearly determined from a climatic point of view; Accordingly, tourists travel to Singapore all year round.

Nevertheless, the festive months from July to September should be emphasized. This time of year is considered a great time to explore the many facets of Singapore, especially in July when the Great Singapore Sale takes place and the Singapore Food Festival is held: a celebration of local culinary traditions.

The months of February to April are also varied and are considered by some to be the best time to travel. There are many outdoor activities available and a number of cultural and traditional festivals coincide with this time.

The wettest months are between November and January. This is the monsoon season, when the temperatures are always warm, but prolonged rain showers can occur. The hottest months are May and June, as temperatures rise to over 35 ° C.
