    Luggage and bags: Leave that luggage if you are not going to stay too long. As you can almost get anything u need here & cheap. there's always a shop near the corner and lots of 24hours store to purchase those. Even if you are ready to make a big spending on your shopping. You can use the Singapore Postal Service to Mail your shopping item home.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: if you don't need to dress for the occassion, slip-on is the best. or your walking shoe for the long hours of shopping. Or just go shop for one. Singapore is a big shopping paradise, from branded goods to home designer. you can get a large variety of design here....however do take note that you can hardly find anything you want that suit a cooler environment..

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I really suggest you get a good SUN BLOCK in Singapore. as you tend to get alot of sun in singapore. SUN burn are common for those who visit singapore from Europe. Do not sit under the sun too long.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Make sure you bring your SUN BLOCK. alot of foreigner thought that a little while on the cool near beach is ok. However, the warm sun in singapore is really very bad for the skin. Even Singaporean get bad SUN BURN. Use those Mosquito Repellent with skin moisture that help your skin from dryness by the huminity.

    Miscellaneous: Be sure to have your identity card or passport for the frequent night spot check by the police. If you are afraid to loose them and leave them in the hotel save..f. a copied of your passport is ok. Note that smoking in public and under age could get yourself in trouble. most aircondition places, smoking are not allowed. Some open concept food stall have mark up an area for smoking

    Sun block lotion & Your swimming suits

    by Apang Updated Dec 14, 2006

    Luggage and bags: Just bring your essential item, you can purchase easily in Singapore

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Make sure you have a good walking shoes & flip flop

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: If you are contact lens users, make sure you have enough storage solutions & eyedrops with you. Singapore may be too dry for some & during October of the year you may encounter haze. It is also hard to find any storage solutions for contact lens after 10pm, as most of the 24/7 stores do not sell them.

    Photo Equipment: Make sure you have your charger & universal plug with you. some of the hotel will provide upon request.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Make sure you have your swimming gear, Singapore is an island surrounded by sea, make a trip to the sea, most hotels also has a swimming pool.

    Miscellaneous: SUN BLOCK/shield/tanning lotions, Singapore is a tropical island & like summer throughout the year, make sure you don't get sburn.un Most of my friends (oversea/local) did not notice this & been enjoying themselves in the Sun, walking around the city & sun-tanning by the beach & got really burn. Do take note that you have to re-apply the lotions estimated after 2 hours or it would be as good as not applying them.

    Too much sun

    by cokes Written Aug 13, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Its hot here in Singapore so I would suggest you pack light and come with lots of shorts and t-shirts.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I would say bring sun block if you plan on spending time at the beach or just merely spending time in the sun.
