DRESSING FOR SUCCESS

Updated: Oct 27


Looking good an Feeling good on your day-trip





Believe it or not how you dress for your day trip will have a lot to do with how successful and enjoyable the day will be. It's hot & humid in Singapore so be sure to wear loose fitting light clothing and avoid silks and polyesters as they trap in the heat and moisture. Instead wear cotton or some of the newer moisture wicking materials.

You will likely also be doing a lot of walking, so I recommend wearing lightweight ankle socks and comfortable walking shoes or sneakers. Avoid sandals and flip-flops as Singapore has a lot of uneven pavement.

In the bright tropical sun a good hat with a large bill along with a pair of quality polarized sunglasses are worth their weight in gold. Its also not a bad idea to do as the locals do and purchase a small lite foldable umbrella for the tropical sun or occasional rain shower.



TIPS for travelers

  • Sunscreen lotion is a must

  • Freeze your water bottle the night before or fill it with just ice before you start your day trip. It will thaw as throughout the day and give you cold refreshing water to drink. Don't store it with camera gear or electronics.

  • Bring along a small soft towel... You can soak it with cold water and use it to cool off...

  • Bring along a few small packs of tissues. You'll need them for sure.

  • Contact lens, Carry a spare pair or two if you use them.

  • Clothing, Carry a spare lite shirt or sun dress along with a pair of socks.

  • Carry at least $50 in small bills $10s, 5s, and 2s... Hawkers and Taxis don't like large bills and may not take them.



TIPS FOR YOU LADIES

  • Bring along a large scarf or shawl as the AirCon in Buses and some restaurants can be chilly.

  • Avoid silks and polyesters as they trap in the heat and moisture.
