Tips for Visiting Singapore in April

  • Singapore’s weather in April is hot and humid but several of its attractions are indoors, in air-conditioned buildings. So while you pack for summer, do keep a warm layer like a thin jacket or sweater to move comfortably indoors without catching a chill.
  • Visit the Haw Par Villa, a unique Asian cultural park that abounds with statues and artifacts about Chinese culture. It even has the quirky ‘Ten Courts of Hell’ displaying sins and their punishments! If you visit in April, avoid afternoons as there is little shade to take cover under.
  • Evenings in April are a good time to spend street-shopping. You will not only find a good bargain but also great places to eat. Bugis Street, Chinatown Street Market, Tekka centre, China Square Central Flea Market, and Little India market are some of the best street-shopping areas.
  • The Singapore Botanical Gardens is an ideal place to spend muggy April days - the fresh air and greenery will lift your spirits up! The Beneath Tide exhibition is going on at the gardens till 14th April, to raise awareness about Singapore’s Marine life.
