Best time to be in Singapore
There are various seasons around which you can plan a trip. November - January and June - July is the best time to visit Singapore and the peak season. The city sees a surge in tourism during the Christmas season and Chinese New Year while the Great Singapore Sale begins in June and lasts till the end of July, when all kinds of discounts, as much as 70%, in addition to extended shopping hours, can be enjoyed at the shopping outlets across the island for eight weeks between late May and the end of July.
If you plan to shop the markets in Chinatown, going in the late afternoon/early evening hours is best. The time of year here makes a difference too, with the best time to visit in January or February, a month before the Chinese New Year, when the area is decorated with dazzling lights and ornaments, and streets are filled with stalls touting all sorts of wares from pottery, clothes and a variety of household items to a wide array of food.
