Helsinki

Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) will appeal to museum buffs. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Johannes Church. There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at The Aalto House, take a stroll through Katajanokka, see the interesting displays at Finnish Aviation Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Singapore, Singapore to Helsinki is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and train. You'll gain 6 hours traveling from Singapore to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Singapore in December, with highs in Helsinki at 3°C and lows at -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Wed) early enough to take a train to Tampere.
