Come Prepared

S$ 4 You saved at least

As Singapore is an all year hot weather country, you should be dress in comfortable jeans or shorts with T-Shirt. 

Of course, check the weather before you arrive so that you do not need to purchase an umbrella or poncho.

  • Cap, Sunblock, sunglasses for the sunny weather
  • A sweater if the night is cooler
  • If you plan to take water rides, or seat at the front row at the Live Show Water World, do purchase a poncho from Watsons at Vivo City. Definitely cheaper than buying in the Park. Cost S$1.95 for an adult Poncho.
