When is the best time to visit Singapore?

Have a ball on the island of Singapore with great weather and bargain flights during these months.

We did the hard work so you don’t have to: here are the best times for you to hightail it to Singapore, when the weather is ideal, the season is low and the prices are within budget.


When is the best time to visit Singapore?

June to August is an ideal time to travel to Singapore as it falls right at the end of dry season,
which means you can expect little rainfall. As school is still in for Singaporeans, you won’t be competing with locals on holiday.

Cheapest time to fly to Singapore


Overview

Singapore’s weather is fairly constant, with high humidity and temperatures of 26–30℃ throughout the year. It’s a case of finding the driest month, which is generally from March to August.

You’ll also want to avoid the South-East Asian haze, which is air pollution caused by agricultural burning in Indonesia. This typically occurs from August to October and is best avoided for health reasons.

Singapore is a popular destination for Australian travellers and business travellers worldwide. Steer away from school holiday periods (Christmas) and festival events, such as Chinese New Year in January or February, when prices can spike dramatically.


Weather and prices

Best time to visit Singapore, weatherwise: March to August.

Cheapest time to visit Singapore: Look for flight and hotel deals from July to August as they’re the country’s slowest months for tourism.

Cheapest time to visit Singapore over Christmas. Book to travel earlier in the season rather than later to score the biggest prices. According to bookings made through HotelsCombined in 2018-2019, rooms in November are the cheapest in the season at $171 on average for 3-5 star hotel stays between 10-24 November. This climbs to $207.96 over the Christmas and New Years and then tails down to $186 between 16 February and 2 March. This increased price is likely due to Chinese New Year arriving during these months.

Best time to visit Singapore for…

  • Sightseeing. With its consistent temperature, Singapore can be visited anytime during the year for city sightseeing. To steer clear of the crowds, avoid the peak months of December, January and June.
  • Relaxing on Sentosa Island. Singapore’s resort island shares the same climate as its mainland. With beach and outdoor activities at your fingertips, the summer days in June to August are best to see it. Avoid December to January as these tend to bring monsoon weather.
  • Festivals. Chinese New Year is one of Singapore’s largest festival dates, making it peak period for travellers. It falls on the first full moon of the year, which is in January or February. Book early for the best price to see the city light up in celebration. Other event dates of note include the mid-autumn festival in October, Hari Raja in June and National Day in August.
  • Shopping. The Great Singapore Sale is when fashionistas can shop till they drop, grabbing bargains galore. It runs between June and August, which coincides perfectly with low season.
