Singapore's tropical climate provides guests with an opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities and year-round sporting events. The island is warm and humid all year round, with only slight variations between the average maximum of 31 degrees Celsius and minimum of 23 degrees Celsius. This makes it ideal for those who enjoy sunbathing, swimming, sailing and other water sports.
Singapore is sheltered from the effects of the sun with air-conditioning in almost all of its indoor shopping malls, office buildings and restaurants. Rain falls throughout the year, with more consistent rain coming during the monsoon season from November to January. Showers are usually sudden and heavy, but also brief and refreshing.
