For many travelers, Singapore is their first introduction to Southeast Asia, and the island nation seems to exist in two worlds at once. When you visit Singapore, the sparkling boutiques and department stores on Orchard Road and the hotels, both historic and new, may remind you more of Houston, Texas, than of the inscrutable East. But Singapore travel has its exotic elements too - in the shophouses of Chinatown, for instance, as well as the temples of Little India and the city's night markets. Whether you're stopping in Singapore en route to other parts of Asia or are making it the only stop on your journey, you'll be greatly rewarded if you delve beneath the city's spotless surface and get to know the real Singapore.

Sitting just north of the equator, Singapore doesn't really have any seasons. Instead, expect hot and humid weather year-round, although the wettest months are from November to February. Whenever you visit, you can expect swift downpours followed by clear skies.
