What is the weather like in Singapore in February?
February in Singapore is quite dry, with only, on average, six days of rain with the temperature ranging from 25 to 31 degrees Celsius.
Where can we go as tourists?
The Famous Marina Bay Sands with Gardens by the Bay is about a five-minute car ride away. It has a beautiful observatory deck for viewing much of Singapore. If you are looking to do some shopping, Orchard Road (about a 10-minute car ride) is where you’ll want to go. If you would like to find more family-friendly things to do and be close to the water, Sentosa Island would be a good option (about a 15-minute car ride).
