Tips for visiting Singapore in June

  • Singapore could experience a fair-share of Sumatras - squall lines that cause lightning and thunderstorms in June. So keep yourself updated on the weather to avoid any travel-related hassles.
  • During the month of June, Singapore and the surrounding islands are engulfed in smoke haze due to large-scale burning in many parts of Sumatra and Borneo. It is advisable to carry protective face masks and take other necessary precautions.
  • First and foremost, to circumvent the heat effects, start your day early, so by the time scorching sun comes over your head, you’d have already had a few adventures under your belt. Additionally, the key to survive the heat wave of southwest Asia and to make the most of your time there is to stay hydrated. Carry a water bottle and swig as often as possible.
  • June marks the onset of tourist season in Singapore - festivals, shopping sales, and holidays invite a flock of tourists to the Island. Pre-book hotels, flights, attractions you want to visit; this not just saves your valuable time, but discounts offered online could help you save more than just a few Singapore dollars.
  • Singapore is a melting pot of various cultures and their respective cuisines. The hawker-stall culture is quite prevalent in the city, so don’t forget to try some lip-smacking dishes at places such as Tiong Bahru Market, Bedok Marketplace, Lau Pa Sat, Maxwell Food Centre, and Tekka Centre among others.
