When is the best time to visit Singapore?

You can expect temperatures with maximum values of up to 32 degrees Celsius and an average of 6 hours of sunshine per day. The lowest values are 24-25 degrees Celsius. You should therefore be prepared for very hot days in Singapore. But with the right clothes, sunscreen and sunglasses, that’s not a problem. In addition, it should be said that Singapore is a travel destination for the whole year.

The temperatures fluctuate around 30 degrees Celsius and are still very high. With only 4 hours of sunshine per day, you can expect cloudy days than in the summer months. In return, the prices drop and you can get hold of a bargain or two. If you have an umbrella with you, you can survive the short rain showers well. If it rains for a longer period of time in one day, I have put together a few activities for you that are fun even in rainy weather. If you want to swim in the sea, you’re in luck – you can swim in Singapore all year round. Due to the hot average temperatures, the sea water remains at a constant 27 degrees Celsius. It’s not really refreshing, but raging in the waves is still fun.

Visit to the “National Museum of Singapore”
Would you like to get to know the history of Singapore? Then a visit to the National Museum of Singapore is a good idea. As an adult, you pay the equivalent of around € 9, depending on the exchange rate, and can spend the whole day in the museum. As you wander through Singapore’s past, you will discover a wide variety of artifacts from ancient times. The permanent exhibitions include, for example, the Old Tree , a photo series about trees in Singapore and the Singapore History Gallery. The history of the city from a crown colony to today’s Singapore is presented in the history gallery. There are also changing exhibitions, so it’s best to find out what there is to discover in advance. But believe me, once you have arrived at the museum, time flies by in no time.

How about a visit to the Singapore Aquarium? The aquarium is one of the largest in the world. Look forward to 100,000 marine animals from 800 different species.

The silence and the gracefully moving animals – indescribable.
