If you plan for leisure or honeymoon, it is recommended to discover Singapore at the end of the year (from Christmas to New Year) when all the streets would have an impressive variety of flowers, lights, music and decorations. Especially, several resorts such as Sentosa and Marina Bay hold a host of interesting programs like exciting musical performances in combination with firework displays. At that time, the rains which come in this period are fewer than those of other periods of the year.
