Singapore has earned itself the reputation of being a tourist hot spot of sorts, and justifiably so. The city’s skyline is postcard perfect, with towering skyscrapers disappearing into the clouds. Whether it is the public transport or traffic management, everything works in clockwork fashion—a welcome surprise for most Indians.
The metropolis offers a variety of sights and experiences for all types of travelers. History junkies would enjoy the city’s many museums, while nature lovers would love the Jurong Bird Park and Night Safari.
The city abounds in good dining choices. Singaporeans take their shopping very seriously, and even the most hardcore shopper will be delighted by the shopping options. A burgeoning art scene and cultural hubs such as Chinatown complete the Singapore package.
To paraphrase Robin Williams in Good Morning Vietnam, Singapore is ‘HOT and WET. That’s nice if you’re with a lady, but ain’t no good if you’re in the jungle…’. Practically on the equator, Singapore’s temperature never drops below 20°C, usually climbing to 30°C during the day. Rainfall and humidity are steady year-round. Rain arrives in torrential downpours, but is soon replaced by sunshine. It may rain every day during the wet season, but it rarely rains all day. The wettest months are November to January, the driest May to July.
