I recently had the opportunity to visit Singapore and I must say, I was taken aback by the weather.
The weather in Singapore is always wet, either you get wet from the rain or wet from perspiration.
I’ve never experienced a place like this before and I was completely unprepared for the humidity and frequent rain showers.
There’s no such thing as a typical day in Singapore.
When I woke up in the morning, I expected the sun to be out and for the temperature to be comfortable. But instead, I was greeted with a thick grey sky and a heavy shower of rain.
It was almost like the rain clouds were waiting for me to arrive.
It was really difficult to adjust to this type of weather.
On days when the heat was particularly bad, I found myself spending most of my time in air-conditioned buildings.
I quickly realised that this was the only way to keep cool and dry.
But it wasn’t all bad. Although it was always raining, I was still able to explore the city and take in the sights and sounds of Singapore.
The rain actually made the air feel fresher and cleaner, and I could appreciate the beauty of the city in a different way.
However, the weather also made it difficult to enjoy some of the activities and attractions in Singapore.
For example, I had planned to go on a night safari, but the rain made it impossible to do so. I had to cancel my plans and find something else to do instead.
Even when the rain stopped and the sun came out, I was still sweating from the humidity. I had to take breaks every few hours to cool down and rehydrate.
Despite the fact that the temperature was actually quite comfortable, the humidity made it seem like I was in a sauna.
All in all, I can’t say I enjoyed the weather in Singapore.
It was wet, humid and uncomfortable. But I still enjoyed my time in Singapore and I would definitely recommend it to other tourists.
Just make sure you bring plenty of umbrellas and mosquito repellent.
