Made up of a staggering 63 individual islands and sitting off of the south coast of the country of Malaysia, is the beautiful island country of Singapore. A Singapore holiday is a popular choice with many travellers, especially those who love a large dose of tradition, culture and history. With breath-taking views of the Johor Strait, the Singapore Strait and even the South China Sea, a Singapore holiday rental apartment will have all of the amenities you need to ensure that your trip runs as smoothly as possible.
A Singapore holiday is certainly not lacking in the number of things that you can choose to do! Amongst the activities available on the island are swimming, diving, water skiing, cycling, hiking, walking, bird watching, trekking, tennis and golf. This island nation is also an absolute dream for any shopaholics.
If you decide to venture out from your comfortable Singapore holiday rental apartment then it is worth spending a bit of time on one of the islands, Sentosa. Sentosa is located just off of the south coast of mainland Singapore and has many great attractions for visitors to enjoy. This includes Underwater World which is one of Asia’s biggest and most interesting oceanariums. Visitors can walk alongside sharks and see over 2,500 species of marine life up close and personal.
Also to be found on Sentosa is Volcano Land, which takes visitors on an exciting trip into the centre of the Earth. Along the way, you can marvel at fossilised creatures and pre-historic dinosaurs. Finally, a trip to the Maritime Museum will allow visitors to see old pirate ships which used to frequent the shoreline of the island.
If you are now convinced that booking a fantastic Singapore holiday rental apartment is the right way to go then you will be even more delighted to learn that you can expect to enjoy some fabulous weather too. Most travellers enjoy a Singapore holiday any time of year thanks to the steady Tropical climate, which sees the daytime temperature vary between 23°C and 31°C. The annual rainfall amount for the country is 84 inches with the wettest months tending to be November and December.
Travellers on a Singapore holiday are likely to start their trip by arriving at Changi Airport (SIN) which is located on the far eastern side of the island. Air operators that have regular, cheap flights on offer to the island include British Airways, Sri Lankan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, KLM and Emirates Airlines. Passengers can leave the UK from several major airports including London Heathrow (LHR), Glasgow (GLA), Leeds (LBA), Southampton(SOU) and Manchester (MAN).
