When to book flights to Singapore
Like many destinations in South East Asia, Singapore doesn’t really have a peak season. Instead, its hot, humid weather attracts visitors throughout the year. In the European summer months, Singapore enjoys dry, hot days and little rain. In the winter, temperatures are a little lower and you’re more likely to experience a downpour or two.
In terms of cost, flights to Singapore don’t vary too much during the year, although there are a few popular festivals, especially in June and July, that see flights to Singapore from the UK increase in price.
