Sentosa Island holidays: A year-round destination
Singapore is located off the southern tip of the Malaysian Peninsula in South Asia, and is in Singapore standard time (GMT +8). Its tropical climate makes it warm and humid all year round, with possibly the only time of year to be avoided being monsoon season (November to January). The temperature hovers around the 30°Celsius mark during the day, and rarely drops below 23°Celsius at night. This means swimming, sailing and other water sports can be enjoyed by holidaymakers most of the year. Sentosa can be reached by Monorail from Harbour Front in Singapore. It's easy to get around the island via tram, bus and train.
