The wet season, on the other hand, is usually wetter and more humid. The wet season takes place between June and September. Even with the higher levels of rain, these storms are often over quickly so they don’t disrupt too much of the day.
There are also plenty of festivals and events you can experience if you’re interested. Consider planning your honeymoon around such experiences as the Chinese New Year, the Singapore Food Festival, and the Great Singapore Sale.
