WEATHER: Singapore is year-round warm, tropical climate has daily temperatures in the 80s °F (high 20s °C). November to June is the high season, especially during the Chinese New Year season. The Northeast Monsoon season occurs from November to January, however, so you may encounter plenty of rain.
CLOTHES: Singapore‘s tropical climate means it’s like summer all year round, with temperatures ranging from 26–34 degrees Celsius (about 78–93 degrees Fahrenheit) on average. The high humidity also means a lot of perspiration when outdoors, so pick the right clothing to wear or risk looking like a sweaty, frazzled mess throughout your trip. Plan your outdoor activities for cooler mornings, and urban walks at night when the lights come on. An umbrella is also essential, as this tropical climate swings from blistering sunshine to torrential downpours in a matter of minutes.
REGULATIONS IN SINGAPORE: Singapore is well known for its many laws and regulations. Actions like spitting in the street, tossing your cigarette butt into a drain, or sticking your chewing gum on public property may result in a fine if you get caught. Most of the laws are common sense rules, but know that you may face harsh punishments that include incarceration and caning when it comes to infractions like vandalism. You may even face the death penalty for drug-related offences. Despite this hard stance on crime, Singapore is often rated as one of the safest countries in the world.
ENTRY, EXIT & VISA REQUIREMENTS: To enter Singapore, you need a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of your intended stay. If you plan on regional travel beyond Singapore, make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond the date you plan to enter other countries in the region. You do not need a visa for tourist or business visits up to 90 days.
NO SMOKING AREAS: No one is not allowed to smoke in air-conditioned places, suchas malls and eateries. There are designated smoking areas in some entertainment outlets and open-air eateries.
VACCINATIONS TO VISIT SINGAPORE: Some vaccines are recommended or required for Singapore. The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccinations for Singapore: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia and influenza.

Most hotels allow children to stay in the room with parents either with or without an extra bed. The normal hotel policy is not to charge for children if they are under 12 years of age. Some hotels will limit occupancy of a room to two adults and one child. Only a few hotels will have existing bedding for additional children, so an extra bed is usually required. Most hotels will charge for this extra bed. Usually hotels will provide breakfast when there is a charge for an extra bed. However, this is dependent on each hotel's policies and procedures. A baby cot may be provided free of charge, by some hotels, for children under the age of 2. You will be able to see the individual hotel policy at the ‘Hotel Policy’ section of each of the packages page.
All our packages are in a pre-determined currency of American Dollars (USD).
