Singapore Changi Airport is located approximately 10 miles northeast from the centre of Changi. It's the second busiest airport in Asia and serves over 46 million passengers each year. Over 100 airlines service the airport, including Singapore Airlines, United Airlines, Vietnam Airlines and Korean Air.
You can get from the airport to the downtown Changi area via bus, shuttle bus, taxicab, train or rental car. The Airport Shuttle transports passengers to hotels in Changi for $9. The airport also offers a free shuttle bus that takes people to the Changi Business Park. To get to the city by train, you need to take the train from the Changi Airport Station to the Tanah Merah Station. From there, take the westbound train to the city. It costs $2 to take the public bus into the city, and the trip takes about one hour. Taxi stands are located outside the arrivals area of each terminal. Cab fare to Changi costs between $18 and $38. If you need your own set of wheels, use ebookers to reserve a rental car. Avis and Hertz have rental-car counters in the arrivals area of the terminals.
Singapore doesn't have distinct seasons. The average temperature ranges from 23Â°C to 31Â°C throughout the year. The weather is hot, humid and wet. Monsoon season runs from December to early March and from June to September. Even though it's in the middle of monsoon season, February is the best time to visit Singapore. Not only is it the driest month, but it's the month with the least humidity. Regardless of when you travel, make sure to pack lightweight clothing to keep you cool.
If you enjoy shopping, head to Orchard Road. The street is lined with upscale boutiques where you can find decent prices on name-brand fashions. If you're looking for a souvenir with an Asian flair, head to Chinatown, Arab Street or Little India. History buffs should visit the Kranji War Memorial, the Sun Yat-sen Nanyang Memorial Hall, the Raffles Landing Site and the Asian Civilizations Museum. If you're taking a family holiday, spend some time at the Resorts World Sentosa theme park, Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, the Singapore Zoo and Underwater World.
