When to visit
Singapore is hot and humid all year-round, with temperatures usually reaching over 30°C. You should be prepared for rain at any time, which can be torrential but usually brief.
Getting Around in Singapore
Singapore’s MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) system is probably the fastest way to zip around the city. Most of our popular attractions are just a short walk away from an MRT station, making our trains a great way to get around.
Singapore's bus system has an extensive network of routes covering most places in Singapore. Besides being an economical way to get around, it’s one of the most scenic — you’ll be able to indulge in air-conditioned comfort, as you admire the lush greenery and beautiful architecture of our ‘city in a garden’.You can pay for your bus fare using an adult stored value smartcard (EZ-link / Nets FlashPay) or the Singapore Tourist Pass (STP). Just keep an eye out for the electronic card reader — located next to the bus driver—and tap as you board.
Taxis are comfortable and especially handy if you want to go to places not accessible by the bus or MRT. Cabs here are metered, but there may be surcharges depending on when, where and which company’s taxi you board.
Cycling around our sunny island is a great way to get your dose of Vitamin D and enjoy the green spaces that dot our city. Singapore boasts a well-connected network of cycling paths, and you can rent shared bicycles from licensed operators.

Welcome to Singapore! The small city-state of Singapore is bustling, cosmopolitan, trendy, modern, and plays a part on the world’s financial and political stage that seems disproportionate to its size.

The north, west, and east are studded with older suburbs, nature reserves, and historic sites. Despite being a model modern metropolis with skyscrapers, glitzy shopping malls, museum, and contemporary entertainments, a traditional Singapore survives beneath its glossy exterior. At its core is a multicultural heritage, revealed in the timeless elegance of colonial architecture, Chinatown’s shophouses, and the uniquely juxtaposed temples, mosques and churches.
The Singapore River winds through the heart of the main city and has long been the hub of its life and commerce.
Singapore is a shoppers paradise. Scores of shops at every turn offer almost unlimited choices. The city caters to all tastes and budgets.
