Hi, it will be sunny with occassional rains. For Nature, you can go to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, where you can trek, rock climb and there is also a mountain biking trail around the reserve.

You can also visit nearby islands such as Chek Jawa at Pulau Ubin. It is a major draw as there are plenty of chances to get close to nature. Several different ecosystems can be seen in one small area.

If you like bird-watching, you can visit the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, as it is recognized as a site of international importance for migratory birds.

Hope that you will enjoy your trip here!
Gidday,

Generally the weather here in Singapore is warm, so leave most of your winter clothes at home and enjoy the open air...

If you're not much of a shopper and only have 2d/3n then highly recommended that you spend one day and night at Singapore Zoo () and Night Safari, with your second day dedicated to visiting Sentosa Island (), and doing a city/river tour (). Also something else to do if you have the time would be a visit to the Singapore Flyer ()

During your extra night out you should visit chinatown and some of the local markets/hawker centers for an authentic local dinner.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me.

Dress light as it is warm and humid any time of the year in Singapore. T-shirts with bermudas/jeans/khakis are fine for just about anything, especially since you're not into shopping.

Head out to Pulau Ubin for nature treks or cycle around the island or out to Sungei Buloh or Bukit Timah Hill. However, it is not advisable to go alone or at least without informing someone even though the places are not large or very wild.

Try also the Botanic Gardens if you're interested in plant species. Not at all wild but you will see a large variety of plants and especially orchids. MacRitchie Reservoir is yet another place to go tramping into the (small) woods.

As mentioned earlier, do give the Zoological Gardens, Night Safari and Bird Park a go.

As these are all outdoor activities, do bring along water and if you can, a poncho or umbrella as it does rain a bit in Singapore.
There might be prolonged monsoon in February so be prepared for a little rainy weather. In addition to the locations mentioned above, do visit the Little India, Chinatown and Kampung Glam. Although you might not be a big shopper, these places are important as they are the last vestiges of Singapore's colonial past. Hope you enjoy your trip here.
Since you're not a big shopper, the Chinese New Year period should not be a major problem. Just note that most food courts and shopping malls would be closed during this time in February.

I like the tree top walk at Bukit Timah, Singapore Botanical Gardens and jungle trekking/cycling at Pulau Ubin. We do have some swamps at Punggol if you're feeling adventurous, behind the cloak of concrete apartments and train tracks we have some undisturbed red swamps left to be explored.

One of the last standing wild life safe haven left in Singapore is the MacRitchie Reservoir. Occasionally, school would hold cross country runs around the reservoir's nature trail, adding a sense of liveliness to the atmosphere's calm.

The weather in Singapore is rather hot as in 29-31 degree Celsius, if you like natural i would suggest going to the zoo(day or night), bird park, sentosa island~~ beside that, there are a lot of entertainment going on in the city as well fro such clarkey port, marina bay, suntec city, and harbour front~~
Hi!

Welcome to Island of Paradise! Generally, Singapore is a tropical climate with no distinctive seasons. Most of the climate are characterized by its temperature, high humidity and abundanat rainfall. Her temperature ranged from 22 to 34 degree celcius or 72 to 93 farenheit and its relative humidity is about 90% in the morning and 60% in the afternoon. Hope it is not to geographically loaded for you… here let me summarize for you. June and July is known to be the hottest month while November and Dec makes for the heavy rainfall but because of global warming, this has changed a lil. Most of the time it is unpredictable. For example, right now, she’s in her wet season but Feb should be sunny most of the time but expect shower once awhile.

Since you are a nature lover, Singapore doesn’t offer much of jungle tracking unlike Malaysia. However, while you’re staying here on a short trip, you can visit the Mount Faber or have a short trip to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Mount Faber is mainly for sight seeing over the hills and it is “urbanized” with F&B outlets, etc. But if you really love the trees and muddy tracks, try Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.
about 33-34 , after u reach here , u also can choose to go malaysia coz very near to singapore , about 30 minit ! if u don't like shooping much matter go malaysia fof travel. can enjoy ur life in natural life
Hi there! Well Singapore has a tropical climate and so it's perpetually summer here, with a little bit of monsoon season during the year end period. SO travel light if u're making your way here in February. We have a warm temperature and humid weather so be prepared for that.

Anyway, 3 nights and 2 days will be just nice if you are planning to do a sightseeing of the city and a hit a few tourist attractions. For one thing, I'd advise you to check the night life out since you are going to be spending more evenings here than days. Singapore has a bustling night life, and you can check out the Clarke Quay area for some clubs, or even bars or restaurants if you just want a chill, relaxed night out. The Clarke Quay area is known for its night life and it is situated by the Singapore River. If you are not into partying or chilling at a bar, you can also try the SIngapore River Cruise which you may board from the Boat Quay area. It takes you down the river area and see Singapore amidst the city backdrop. It is even more so beautiful at night when the city lights up.

If you are a nature kinda person, you may try going to Pulau Ubin, one of our offshore islands to try trekking by bike. It's a great place to do that if you're more adventurous and rugged. You may explore the island and see some huts and village which are still around on the island. Essentially, you may also try canoeing or kayaking around the island to see if from a totally different point of view.

Pulau Sentosa (Sentosa Island) is also another must-go for tourists. It's one of the places we SIngaporeans like to go to for a bit of sun and sand. There are various ways to get there, I'm sure the tourism page has information on this.

Yup. that's about it. Hope this information is useful.

Have a good fall season for now.
Thankyou so much guys and gals... all your comments are much appreciated. I know I will have a great time, sentosa, zoo probably on the agenda, I'm heading to Langkawi after for a few days so I'l get some bushbashing in there!!! Thanks again... :)
Well, is a sunny season. But play safe, it's a complusory for you to bring an umbrella out. Just bring a comfortale and cool outfit o Singapore. You should go Sentosa to have suntan, means you need to bring a bikini..
Hi it will be mostly sunny with some rain during that time of the year. On average the weather will be between 27-32 C. Feb will be just the end of the rainy season. If you love nature and beauty, you can visit the MacRitchie Reservoir where you can take a tree top walk on suspension bridge and have a breathtaking view over the canopy. Also you can visit the Botanical Gardens and the Bird Park which offers both beauty and nature.
Hi. Sorry for this late reply!

I guess the rest of my fellow countrymen have summed up all that you need to know so i'll probably just re-emphasize them for you in bullet form:

- Feb is perfect. In fact, any time of the year is perfect. Not too much rain, not too hot that you need to apply sun block. My preferred outfit will be cotton tees, bermudas and shades. You can go on trainers and socks but loafers, sandals or flip-flops are just as great.

- Miss the shopping but go for the food - its really, what Singaporeans are truly passionate about. You can find food anywhere and everywhere, depending on your budget. You need a guide for this - go to:

- Now since you mentioned you are a nature-loving hippie (just kidding), Singapore unfortunately is more of a "concrete-jungle" than anything remotely green and lush with flora and fauna. But we do have places for that (just so we Singaporeans aren't left deprived...), i wouldn't mention any of those that has already been listed by fellow Singaporeans in this website, but here's my personal best:

- Chek Jawa - if you are a bird-watcher, marine-come-swamp life lover. Its off Singapore (in Pulau Ubin), so its really quite fun to get out of the city for this. ()

- Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve - Lovely little enclave with rare species of birds and animals (wetland) (). If you like nature, you will like the wetland reserve, trust me.

I'd personally give Sentosa a miss if i've only got 2 days here. Go for the Hop-On-Hop-Off Tour which will get you to all the key landmarks (albeit touristy) places in Singapore in 2 hours, and then you can scoot off to do something else on your personal agenda.

Time passes by really fast here in Singapore so do try to take it in one bite at a time ;) Have fun ! :)
