Singapore Surf Trip Surfing Vacation Destinations

Singapore is not necessarily a surf trip destination. However, is your traveling to Indonesia from The States chances are you pass through Singapore, especially if you fly Singapore Airlines. Singapore Airlines return flight connections are not until the next day. You can rent a sleeping cubical at the airport or you can choose to go into town. Go into town it's worth it! Lot's of tourist and fun things to do. Bring extra $$ because it will cost you. Stay away from the "Four Floors of Whore".

Singapore Geography: Singapore is located at the tip of the Malay Peninsula at the narrowest point of the Strait of Malacca, which is the shortest sea route between India and China. Its major natural resources are its location and its deep-water harbor. Singapore Island, though small, has a varied topography. The center of the island contains a number of rounded granitic hills that include the highest point, the 165- meter Bukit Timah Peak. The western and southwestern regions are composed of a series of northwest to southeast tending ridges, which are low but quite steep. To the east is a large region of generally flat alluvial soils where streams have cut steep-sided valleys and gullies. The island is drained by a large number of short streams, some of which flow into the sea through mangrove swamps, lagoons, or broad estuaries.

Singapore Climate: Singapore is two degrees north of the equator and has a tropical climate, with high temperatures moderated by the influence of the sea. Average daily temperature and humidity are high, with a mean maximum of 31°C and a relative humidity of 70 to 80 percent in the afternoon. Rain falls throughout the year, but is heaviest during the early northeast monsoon from November through January. The driest month is July in the middle of the southeast monsoon. The intermonsoon months of April-May and October are marked by thunderstorms and violent line squalls locally known as Sumatras. The average annual rainfall is 237 centimeters, and much of the rain falls in sudden showers.
