- If you are traveling to Singapore, be sure to carry the following:
- Sun Glasses - Singapore is usually bright and sunny.
- Umbrella - Be sure to carry an umbrella in your luggage,as there is some precipitation throughout the year. However, the rain does not last long (usually).
- Sun block - If you plan to go out during the day time, it is advisable to apply sun block as it is mostly sunny throughout the year.
- Shorts/Half Trousers - Singapore can get real warm. Although air-conditioning is available in all public transports (except a few public buses) and almost all internal areas, it is advisable to carry some light clothing. Do note that some places of worship may require visitors to dress conservatively.
- Flip-flops - Singaporeans love to wear flip-flops. Be sure to carry a pair, just to blend in. Try sandals if you're not used to flip flops, but beware - in some formal establishments (e.g. catching a show at Esplanade) no flip flops, sandals, or shorts are allowed.
- Sweater - the malls and museums' air conditioning can get cold, though usually this is a welcome relief from the heat.
- Mosquito repellent - day or night, they're lurking. Dengue fever is a particular problem in this part of the world, so stay protected.
