Plan Your Singapore Holiday

Singapore is famous for its international business, so if you want to find the best flight deals to Singapore, you need start checking and reserving your tickets several months in advance. During July and August you can find cheap hotels in Singapore as business travel temporarily declines and you can also indulge in the Singapore Food Festival that spans an entire month and will allow you to taste the most exquisite culinary delights.

If you would rather avoid the heat, you can buy tickets to Singapore using Etihad Airways’ Deal section for travel from September through to November, which is when the temperature is pleasant and the rainy season has not yet started.
