Most people find themselves booking flights to Singapore as a stopping point on their way to other countries. But don’t dismiss this country so fast. A flight to Singapore sends travelers back in time, when feng shui was a way of life and not a modern fad, and Asian dinners consisted of formal tea ceremonies and history lessons. While embracing its ancient culture, Singapore also takes a step in the modern direction. Travelers booking Singapore flights will be greeted by glass skyscrapers and fancy restaurants lining pristine streets, but the people of Singapore hold the Chinese, Malay and Indian roots near. 

Take time after your Singapore flight and walk through the Historic District. Explore the sights of Chinatown and indulge in an authentic Chinese dinner. Thanks to the money you saved on a cheap flight to Singapore, spend a few hours shopping in the massive Yue Hwa shopping center. There’s much to do and see in Singapore -- take time and explore all this country has to offer.

Best Time to Fly to Singapore

Peak Season: Book your flight to Singapore for June through August. Althought the summer months are hot and humid, they are the driest months, making day trips and outings more accessible.

Off-peak Season: Two Monsoon seasons deter a considerable amount of travel to Singapore. The northeast season typically lasts between November and March, while the southwest season runs from June through September. However, cheap flights to Singapore are available during this time if you book in advance, and you aren’t afraid of a little rain.
