Top 05 Things That You Want to Pack For a Trip to Singapore – A City of Many Allures

Packing for a trip to Singapore must centre on the lush tropical climate, the uber-chic locals and surroundings, as well as, the cultural precincts featuring captivating ancient traditions.


Protection for the Wet and Dry Season

Singapore is a tropical country, with a steady average temperature which ranges between 21 degrees Celsius to 31 degrees Celsius, pretty much all through the year. Humidity levels too are high and range from 70% to 80%; April is the warmest month while in January it's pretty cool with November being the wettest. There is no specific wet or dry season and sudden heavy afternoon showers are common. The monsoon seasons fall between December to March and June to September. As such, depending on when you are travelling to Singapore it is wise to pack an umbrella and a raincoat. Even if you are staying at one of the 5 star hotels in Orchard Road and decide to walk to the malls, do take along proper rain gear.


Protection From Bugs

Make sure to pack a good insect repellent, including a good mosquito spray. Make sure to protect yourself from insect-borne diseases such as dengue fever, which is a risk, especially when travelling to remote areas or the Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. Although the country carries out regular sprays, it is still better to take precautions. Besides, if bugs are not your favourite thing and you want them to take the minimum interest in you, take along the bug spray for times you will be exploring the verdant parks and outskirts of Singapore city.


Protection from the Sun and Comfortable Shoes

If you are staying at a central hotel like Grand Park Orchard, you most likely will choose to walk to many of the nearby attractions like the malls and restaurants of Orchard Road. Hence, you need to take along shades, a hat and sunscreen. It is good to have gear which shields you from the harsh rays of the sun, and having a sunscreen with an SPF factor of 30+ will be very beneficial. Also, do pack a rash shirt and a sun-shirt for those long lazy days you will spend lounging by the pool. Shoes must be comfy for walking and keeping your feet cool; a good pair of sandals and loafers come highly recommended.


Plenty of Deodorant and Comfortable Clothing

Remember that Singapore is a tropical country, and you will most likely sweat a lot more than at home, unless home is a tropical country too, therefore, taking along plenty of heavy duty deodorant will prove to be very handy, especially if you plan on enjoying long walk-about tours of the city, shopping, dining and sightseeing. Clothing should consist of light cottons, to keep you cool in the heat, while some long sleeves and long pants or skirts will be ideal for sightseeing religious sites and conservative Muslim regions.


Swimmers Ear Protection
