Singapore landmarks during sunriseNow that it is already a few months into the year 2018, things have settled down, and many people are surely planning to go vacation somewhere. If you are doing just that, why not consider Singapore?

The island city-state is one of the sought-after destinations in the Far East and, once you are there, the best places to go in Singapore are within your grasps.

Time to go there

As Singapore’s average daily temperatures (Low: 23-25°C; High: 31-33°C) stay the same year-round, you can visit any time of the year. However, because it has a tropical climate, the country is humid and receives abundant rainfall throughout the year.

Just to give you an idea for when you are planning your trip, May and June are the hottest months, while December and January are the coolest. In terms of rainfall, it is wettest from November to January and driest in February.

Activities to do there

Singapore has a multitude of activities to offer tourists. You can see popular tourist spots such as the Merlion Park and Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. There are also various festivals like the Singapore Heritage Fest and events like the Formula 1 you can attend while in the city-state.

Shopping is another activity you can enjoy, and if you love shopping, you might as well time your visit to coincide with The Great Singapore Sale.

Foods to try there

Your Singapore experience, of course, will not be complete without trying the local cuisine, which has Chinese, Malay, Indian and Indonesian influences. Must-try foods include bak kut teh (pork bone tea), hokkien mee (fried noodles) and satay (skewered grilled meat).

You can dine at restaurants to try local dishes, but going to hawker centres is arguably the best and most affordable way to experience the Singaporean food scene.

So if you are planning a vacation this year, consider Singapore, and find out for yourself why it is a great tourist destination.
