Preparing for Outdoor Summer Activities in Singapore
Singapore has a tropical climate, the daily temperature ranges from 25 to 25 degrees Celsius. It has high humidity resulting in a lot of perspiration especially when outdoors. So it is very important to wear loose and comfortable clothing while you are out for your activities. Loose, light, cotton clothes will keep you cool in the hot and humid climate. Carrying an umbrella or a raincoat is important for the outing, as thanks to the tropical climate, the hot weather can turn into heavy downpours in just a few minutes.
