The southwest monsoon season continues into July in Singapore, with steady rainfall amounts. The temperatures haven't budged from the previous several months, with an average daily temperature sitting at 27°C (about 81°F). If you don't mind dodging a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms, this is a great time of the year to visit, with lots to see and do. Don't worry about getting stuck in the rain; the city-state has a fantastic public transportation system to get people around and stay dry in the process.

You don't need to check the local forecast to get an idea of that day's temperature. Even the highs and lows remain the same as the previous few months. The low temperature drops down to 24°C (around 75°F) in the evening hours and early morning. Unless you have a low cold tolerance, you won't need a jacket when out and about at night. In the heat of the day, the temperatures jump up to 31°C (about 88°F). The winds blow in from the south, bringing along humidity and smog from nearby Indonesia.

Like nearby Malaysia, the island of Singapore gets around 8 hours of sunshine each day. On any given day, there is a 40% chance of rain and an 80% chance of clouds. Bring along the sunglasses and the high-SPF sunscreen; the high UV index can cause nasty sunburns even on the cloudiest days.

You can expect around 150 mm of rainfall this month, coming over 19 days. An umbrella or poncho is a good idea to stay dry as you travel in between the awesome restaurants, attractions, and shopping that make the area great. The average sea temperature this time of the year is 30°C (about 86°F), plenty warm for swimming, trying water sports and spending time on the beach.  

Where to Stay

Named for its location on the southern coast of Singapore, The South Beach offers luxury accommodations for the most discriminating of tastes. The hotel offers a wide variety of rooms and suites, including the Showcase Her rooms. These rooms were created with the female guest in mind and offer pink bathrobes, specialty bath products, and female touches. ADHD, the hotel's chic restaurant, is open all day and the you can grab drinks at one of three different bars on-site.

At the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore, you'll receive the same incredible service and amenities you've come to expect at a Ritz-Carlton property. The property plays host to its own personal art collection, featuring over 4,200 pieces of contemporary art from artists like Dale Chihuly and Andy Warhol. Many of the spacious rooms have astounding views of Marina Bay, while the others overlook the main downtown area. The seven-acre property also has a swimming pool and private gardens.

Part of the Far East Hospitality chain of properties, The Quincy Hotel is a good choice for both business travellers and leisurely holidaymakers. Soak in the July sunshine on the LED-illuminated pool deck, which seems to perch precariously in an enclave 12 stories high. The pool walls are made completely of glass. The cool factor keeps going through the entire property, from the contemporary and modern décor to the lobby terrace restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating.

Things to Do

Whimsical and fun, the OCBC Skyway in the Gardens by the Bay allows guests to explore the incredible Supertree Grove, the treelike vertical gardens. The "trees" stretch 25 to 50 metres into the air and the Skyway weaves along for 128 metres. While up there, you'll get an up-close look at the amazing features of the structures. The walkway is open every day from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and visitors are treated to a light and music show twice a day.

If you aren't sure where to start when exploring Singapore, join a walking tour with Indie Singapore. The company has three walking tours that explore different parts of the city. On the three-hour tours, you'll see places like Chinatown, Bugis, Kampong Glam, the Singapore River and the Civic District. The well-versed tour guides offer insight into the culture and history of the nation and best of all, the tours are free, making this a great choice for a warm July afternoon.

Military and history buffs will appreciate the Changi Museum, which is dedicated to all those who lost their lives in Singapore during World War II. The museum allows visitors to honour the prisoners-of-war kept in Changi and provides insight into life on the island during that time. You can choose from the traditional walking tour or opt for the audio tour. The Bark Café sits next door to the museum and offers snacks and drinks.

Hit the Beach

If you're looking for an active, vibrant beach, check out Siloso Beach on Sentosa Island. The beach is accessible via Sentosa Buses #1, #2, and #3, as well as the Sentosa Tram and Sentosa Express. Along the beach, you'll find hip bars and restaurants to grab a bite to eat or something to drink. Other highlights include a man-made surfing wave to try your hand at surfing and whirlpool bath right on the beach. Activities offered include skim-boarding and kayaking in the warm water, which averages 30°C (about 86°F) in July.

Eating and Drinking Out

At Cut by Wolfgang Puck, the famous chef brings his flavourful creations to Marina Bay Sands. While there, guests are treated to a classic American steakhouse menu with a wide variety of beefs grilled over hard woods and charcoal. Many of the meats, produce and other food items are flown in from southern California, so you get a true taste of American cuisine. Finish your meal in the cool and hip bar with lounge, offering cocktails, beers and wines.

Found right on the famed Orchard Road, the Curry Culture gives patrons a taste of authentic Indian food. The menu includes classics like tikka, tandoori, naan and a large list of curries, all bursting with flavours. For those needing vegetarian options, the menu also has several non-meat choices. All of the beers, wines and cocktails are hand-picked by the chefs to perfectly complement the complex flavours in the food.

When you dine at 10 at Claymore, come hungry, as the restaurant features an a la carte buffet concept. Diners get to enjoy unlimited amounts of meats, sides and appetizers, but served in smaller portions and prepared when you order. The smaller plates allow you to try many different dishes. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and located in the Pan Pacific Orchard, right on Orchard Road.
