The little island country named Singapore is well known around the world. The small south-east Asian country boosts the economic strength and development of major developed countries. Singapore is not only rich in wealth, but also its diverse population gives it a rich and colourful heritage.
Singapore is gifted with the tropical climate, giving it a warm and sunny climate all year round. The sunny climate also makes the country accessible at any month of the year. However, there are a few peak periods for travellers to avoid, which is from mid-December to the Lunar New Year, approximately around mid- February. December is when the streets if Singapore are lit up and many heads over to Singapore for the holidays and to cash on the Christmas bargains. Not long after Christmas is when many will be making their way back to Singapore to meet up with family and friends for the Lunar New Year. Apart from the Lunar New Year rush, visiting Singapore from February to April would be the best time as this is when temperatures are slightly lower, also with lesser rainfall.
