Singapore is a city, island and country located at the southern tip of Malaysia. It is considered one of the safest cities in the world, a global financial center and a melting pot of cultures. It has something for every kind of traveler – tourist attractions, kid-friendly places, beaches, tropical rainforests, parks, shopping, vibrant nightlife and good food. The population consists of Chinese, Malay and Tamils and a large number of expats many of whom call Singapore home.
Singapore is a year-round destination with tropical weather – warm and humid with occasional rains at any time of the day though November through January sees the most rainfall. But rains last in short spells and rarely wipe out the entire day. On an average, temperatures are between 24°C – 32°C.
Best time to visit
Singapore doesn’t experience a big variation in temperatures through the year or seasonal changes so it is a perfect all-year-round destination.
The population being predominantly Chinese, in the week of the Chinese New Year (falls in Jan/Feb every year) everything slows down a little. All tourist attractions are open during this period, but many restaurants/eateries and stores may be closed for a couple of days.
Singapore has 4 official languages – English, Chinese, Malay, Tamil. English is most widely spoken but you can get by easily with only Chinese. Singlish, a hybrid language as the name indicates, is a blend of Singaporean slang and English.
The currency of Singapore is the Singapore dollar (S$ or SGD) roughly pegged at 1USD to 1.40SGD. Credit cards are widely accepted throughout the island, cash will be useful for smaller purchases. Tipping is not encouraged.
