I am going to surprise my sister for her 40th and meet up with her in Singapore last week of Sept.

Can you tell me what the weather is really like? Trying to take as little as possible as will only be there for 6 days and I have a tendency to pack too much and not end up wearing a lot of what I take!

The weather is pretty consistent all year - hot (32-35 degrees) and humid. It doesn't cool down much at night so you don't need a cardigan for the evenings.

You need light cotton or linen trousers/skirts (be careful about linings, anything that isn't cotton-lined gets pretty sticky quite quickly!) and for evening, silk dresses are quite cool. Definitely no tights unless you are planning to be inside, but the evenings are the best time to be outdoors, and all the bars have an outdoor area. It is hot during the day but manageable as everywhere has aircon all the time.

Flip flops or open-toed shoes. And an umbrella, as there will be the odd downpour.

Hot and humid with odd showers is the weather all year here.

I would suggest shorts, t-shirts and flip flops for day plus cotton trousers/light tops/cotton or linen sleeveless dresses with open toe sandals for evening.

Add umbrella, swimsuit or bikini, bug spray and sunscreen and you'll be fine.

Hi TheExpatWife, Laptopwieldingharpy, Empirestateofmind

Great names BTW. Thanks to you all for your help that is brilliant.

Just came back from a couple of weeks in Portugal and didn't wear half the stuff I took, so wanted to ensure I am not lugging a bag with stuff I don't need. Means that I can do some shopping whilst I am there!

Yes I hope she will be surprised, haven't seen her for nearly four years. Have also planned some treatments for her as a birthday surprise in the hotel spa!

First holiday without the DS's! Yah!
