The cultural melting pot that is Singapore has a tropical rainforest climate with very little distinction between seasons. Humidity is high, rainfall common, and temperatures invariably range from 23 to 32 °C (73 to 90 °F) the whole year round. March to August is drier than the rest of the year, though it still sees its fair share of rain, with a southwest monsoon from June to August bringing up to 80 mm per month, considerably less intense than the northeast monsoon that comes later. However, as a city-state rain is rarely a major issue in Singapore, with the nation’s uniquely diverse cuisine, culture, and commerce a strong draw for people the world over. The summer occasionally sees a slight haze in the air due to intense bush fires in neighboring Indonesia.
The month-long summertime Singapore Food Festival is really a chance for the country to show off its varied, multicultural and downright delicious cuisine. Comprised of a series of cooking workshops, weekly tasting sessions, competitions, films and exhibitions, this festival is a food lover’s paradise.
