A look at Singapore

This is a small island known as the “Melting Pot of Asia”. Why? The culture in this quintessential modern nation is made up of various nationalities, races, casts and creeds. This is evident in neighbourhoods like Little India and Chinatown.

Best time to visit

If you need a break from the heat, then the preferred time to come would be between the months of November and January when the weather is cooler. But keep in mind that this is also the monsoon season. July, on the other hand, sets the perfect climatic balance and is ideal for shopping and some fun in the sun.

Travelling to Singapore

Getting about in the city isn’t all that tough with public transport and the subway. These are the cheapest travel options available. Taking a taxi is the most expensive, but the easiest way to travel when in Singapore.

Lodging options

You are never short of accommodation options in Singapore! Some of Asia Pacific’s best hospitality groups the likes of Park Hotel Group and others offer state-of-the-art facilities for those who prefer luxurious dwellings. Budget hotels are also available here.
