Singapore offers a great variety of choices: from attractions dedicated to family and friends to a tasty cuisine and dynamic night life.
Some say that Singapore has the best hotels on the planet. That’s why you should do your check up in advance, choose what you like and book quickly because Singapore is very crowded, especially during the high seasons like January, February, June and July.
If you are a first time visitor, you may feel overwhelmed by all the places to see and things to find out.
You can visit Singapore in 3 days
You can discover Singapore in 3 days if you are well organized. If you want to discover it in detail, allow yourself 5 days. Singapore can be expensive, so a Singapore Pass may help you save money.
Crowded especially in December, January and June
Singapore is a great year-round destination as it never really gets cold. If you want to avoid the crowds then steer clear of December, January, and June.
The temperatures vary from 25 degrees to 37 degrees, so you don’t have to pack warm clothes.
