So excited about your next trip to Singapore, The Lion City, as it is popularly known across the globe? Well its time to pack your bags and head to explore this beautiful destination for an experience which has the potential to be one of the best memories of your lifetime. Amidst all the excitement and anticipation in travelling to a new place, you might miss out on something important which could be very critical to that destination. Don’t worry, just have a quick glance at the following information:

  • Best Time to Visit

    Singapore is extremely hot as it is very near to equator and there is no such differentiation when it comes to an ideal time to visit the same. Temperatures rarely dip below 20°C and rains are frequent. November to January are marginally wetter and May to July are slightly drier. To make the most of your trip, visit during festivals such as Chinese New Year (Beginning of the year), September (Festival of the Hungry Ghosts) and so on.

  • Hotels

    Being a hot shot tourist destination, accommodation facilities in Singapore suit every budget and taste. Also, don’t forget to carry the visiting cards of the hotel you are staying at.

  • Local Transport

    Singapore is well connected with buses, rail network, and cabs. A convenient way to get around is to buy the Nets Flash Pay card or EZ-link contactless RFID farecard.

  • Visa Requirements

    Travellers are required to pass through immigration clearance once they arrive. The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) officers at the point of entry grant social visit passes. Such passes are valid for 3 months at most.

  • Health and Safety

    Don’t get involved with drugs. It can result in a death sentence. Exercise discretion in interacting with the opposite sex as molestation as scam artists are believed to be there who lure unsuspecting people and later squeeze them into paying money. Take precautions against mosquitoes. Dengue fever is a real threat. Remember to get medical and travel insurance.

With all these information in your kitty, make sure you enjoy your holiday without any hassles and worries!
