(TL;DR) We’ve got them all mapped out for you!
I know, I know… January’s over BUT this just means that we still another 11 months left to see the world! So we have put together here, a month-by-month travel guide all sorted out by seasons and the various public holidays in Singapore. Thank us later!
February – Bhutan
Go to: Bhutan
Winter’s starting to be over, the trekking trails are now open and there is going to be this festive mood in the air for Losar, the Tibetan New Year. February 21st is the 5th King’s birthday so be prepared for immense fun and celebration in the Thimpu capital.
March – Italy
Go to: Italy
Europe is starting to warm up and Italy’s weather will be pleasant without being too crowded in the touristy spots. Good Friday falls on 25 March 2016 so make full use of that extra day!
April – Japan
Go to: Japan
Because, cherry blossom season! There’s no other place to see sakura like the charming, rustic city of Kyoto and the season’s expected to last from 27 March to 15 April 2016.
May – Philippines
Go to: The Philippines
Why not spend your Labour Day long weekend (Monday 2 May 2016 is a public holiday) living it up on the island of Boracay, taking in all the sun, sea and pina coladas you can?
June – Australia
Go to: Australia
Escape the heat here in Singapore by heading Down Under for some cool action (literally) as the southern hemisphere’s experiencing winter! June’s just the start of winter so it shouldn’t be too cold yet which makes it perfect for road trips.
July – Bali
Go to: Bali
More than just beaches, get on your own Eat, Pray, Love adventure in this gorgeous Indonesian island with its magnificent rice fields, temples and great food. By the way, Hari Raya Puasa falls on 6 July 2016 Wednesday.
August – Malacca
Go to: Malacca
Take a day off and make a road trip over the National Day long weekend (9 August 2016 falls on a Tuesday) to the historical city of Melaka just 2 hours away from Singapore.
September – France
Go to: France
Because in the wise words of Audrey Hepburn, “Paris is always a good idea.” Hari Raya Haji falls on 12 September 2016 Monday and what better way to escape for the long weekend than to sip hot chocolate and savour macarons just as Autumn starts?
October – Hong Kong
Go to: Hong Kong
The weather’s starting to cool down so it’s best time to eat and shop to your heart’s content in this vibrant city!
November – Korea
Go to: South Korea
Korean BBQ, huge strawberries, ginseng chicken soup, bingsu – need we say any more?!
December – New York
Go to: New York City
Because Times Square and Central Park at Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
