Singapore and Bintan holidays

Introduction

The futuristic city-state of Singapore hangs from the tip of the Malay Peninsula like a glistening mirror ball.

This ‘Garden City' is arguably the food capital of Asia, but the tiny island state is also renowned as an economic powerhouse. The country's citizens spend freely in the luxury boutiques of Orchard Road and enjoy one of the best standards of living in the world, a source of great pride for the upwardly mobile Singaporeans.

Singapore is the embodiment of modern cultural diversity: a synergy of East and West, past and present, modern and traditional with Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Indian and British influences.

When to go to Singapore and Bintan

Singapore is hot and humid all year round, with an average temperature of 31°C in the daytime and 24°C at night. Like the rest of Southeast Asia, Singapore experiences two monsoons, from the southwest (May-September) and the northeast (November-March), the latter bringing the heaviest rain and frequent thunderstorms. May and June are hottest, while the inter-monsoon months of April and October can be stifling due to a lack of any breeze.
