At the very tip of the Malay peninsula Singapore may be small but it manages to pack in a cosmopolitan city, world-class cuisine, futuristic architecture and a vibrant culture and nightlife. Book a flight to Singapore for a relaxed city break, fun family holiday in the sun or to get a bite-sized taste of Asia.
In common with other South East Asian destinations, Singapore doesn’t really have a distinct peak season. Visitors are attracted to its hot, and occasionally humid, weather throughout the year.
During the US summer months Singapore enjoys dry, hot days with very little rain. In our winter, you can still find a welcome spot of sun in Singapore, but temperatures will be a little lower and you may get caught out in the odd short-lived downpour.
In terms of cost, flights to Singapore don’t vary too much during the year. The best way to secure a deal is to book as early as possible and to use the Orbitz search tools to your advantage.
Singapore is a major international air hub. It is incredibly well-connected for both short- and long-haul flights. This means that there are always plenty of flights departing from various airports in the US to Singapore.
You may need to take advantage of connecting flights if you want to have the best chance of finding a cheap flight.
Using Orbitz, you can quickly narrow down your options and filter your results to quickly find the best flights for you. We search through a huge variety of sources to help you find the best prices for your trip.
Our ‘Nearby airports’ option shows you if an alternative US departure point will lower the price of your flights. If your vacation dates are not fixed you can also check the ‘My dates are flexible’ tick box to compare the cost of flights across a range of dates.
To highlight the best deals, sort and filter your flight results in various ways using the options available on the left-hand side of your search results. Focus on certain types of flight – such as connecting/direct or refundable/non-refundable – and organize your results by factors such as price, flight duration, airline, time of day or airport.
Regularly voted the world’s best airport, Singapore Changi is the largest transportation hub in South East Asia.
Located around 10 miles from downtown Singapore, the airport boasts excellent facilities that include an adventure playground for kids, an art gallery, a rooftop garden, a choice of spas and massage salons, a fantastic array of eateries and even an open-air swimming pool.
When you can finally tear yourself away from the delights of the airport, you’ll find it’s also a pleasure to continue your journey within Singapore. The city’s reliable and efficient public transport network is easy to navigate and taxis are also available at the airport for those who want to get straight to their hotel.
Although only two carriers offer direct flights from the US to Singapore – United and Singapore Airlines – there are more than 30 carriers offering fast, connecting options.
Singapore is small and compact – it’s a great place to explore on an extended city break. The MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) subway system is the way most visitors travel through Singapore. If the MRT doesn’t serve the destination that’s next on your itinerary buses and taxis help to plug the gaps.
Singapore is at its skyscraping, futuristic best here – every night a light show illuminates the waters and by day there’s the Science Museum, casinos, shopping area and fantastic dining options.
Families will not want to miss what was the first amusement park of its kind to open in South East Asia.
