As most of the world experiences summer in June, folks heading to Singapore could also feel an increase in the city’s temperature. Luckily for everyone, there are several places and attractions that you can go and hide away from the humidity and the heat. Here are the top 3 hot spots for people looking to enjoy themselves while escaping the heat during their summer holidays in Singapore.
This is Singapore’s award-winning attraction and is home to the world’s largest greenhouse. Gardens by the Bay is one of the favourite spots for both tourists and locals to visit during the summer holidays for several reasons:
● Sheltered walk via the trees and greeneries.
The lush greenery definitely takes the heat out of your walks. The Supertree Grove, for example, is the perfect place to be not only because it is free, but it offers you a cool shade from the direct sunlight. These towering structures create shaded walkways and covered pathways in the park.
● Indoor Conservatories
The Cloud Forest and Flower Dome make cool, misty mornings a possibility. These two attractions are essentially climate-controlled conservatories, and they offer an escape from the afternoon heat. Cool down in the air-conditioned environment and marvel at the gorgeous waterfall at the Cloud Forest or the vibrant collection of flowers at the Flower Dome.
Tickets to both the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome can be found here (We’re throwing in a bonus free FunVee Open-Top bus ride too!). It’s the perfect choice for a summer holiday in Singapore.
The iconic MBS provides the perfect combination of indoor attractions, dining and entertainment - all within a gorgeous air-conditioned environment. Escape the heat by heading for some retail therapy or visit the artscience museum for a multisensory experience at the latest exhibition!
● The Shoppe
This is a high-end shopping mall that would appeal to all fashion-forward folks with their great selection of luxury brands. Grab your Hermes, your Gucci and your Prada here, along with renowned jewelry, watch and cosmetic brands. Looking for something reasonably priced when dining? Eateries such as Beanstro, for instance, offer great main courses priced between $20 to $30, and a view of the indoor waterfall. It’s certainly something to consider when heading there.

● ArtScience Museum
This Museum is located within Marina Bay Sands itself, and it features immersive displays, VR experiences and even $5 guided tours within the Museum. It’s air-conditioned (which is always welcomed in the heat), allowing you to explore various art and science installations in comfort.
City Tours Tip: Marina Bay is accessible via our FunVee Hop-On and Hop Off bus. Just drop off at stop no. MH3 (Bayfront Avenue), and you’re there! Tickets can be bought here (includes a traditional kaya toast set at Ya Kun Kaya!): https://www.citytours.sg/promotion/detail/497-2-day-funvee-open-top-bus-tour-with-kaya-toast-set
