When is the best time to visit Singapore?
If you’re flying from Manchester (MAN) to Singapore (SIN), it’s worth knowing that Singapore doesn’t have the same four seasons as the UK. Instead, it’s governed by the monsoons. Northeast Monsoon Season runs from December to March, although it can rain from September through to February pretty solidly. Unsurprisingly, then, November is one of the cheapest times to fly to Singapore. On the flip side, July can be one of the most expensive times for flights to Singapore, as visitor numbers peak around this time and the weather is generally better. In Singapore, you’re likely to get showers all year round though, so it’s worth packing an umbrella whenever you go.
