You can virtually wear anything and be comfortable in Singapore. The dress code for women in Singapore easy, there are no special requirements. Visiting places of worship would be the only exception. I am writing this post from a tourist’s point of view. I would say dress according to the weather! It is hot and humid during the day and slightly cooler during the night!
As you can see women dress for comfort and style in Singapore. Shorts is fine, sleeveless is fine, basically you can dress as you dress at home! And it is cool to click the Marina Bay Sands.
It was equally fine if you wish to dress conservatively according to your religion. It was common to spot people who would cover up and that too was fine! I clicked this picture in the China Town.
Places of worship need a special mention. I visited a Buddhist temple in China Town and the Sultan Mosque, located at the Muscat Street. I was wearing a sleeveless top that day. At both the places they gave me robes to cover up. y Singaporean friend Sy was wearing shorts. He was also given a sarong. The rule applies both to men and women. So, the dress code for religious places is that you need to cover your shoulders and knees. This is true for most of the Asia.
By now you have a fair idea of how it goes in Singapore and what you can wear. The rest of the pictures are fun pictures of people. I loved the way mom and daughter were posing for the father!
Here is another one from the Bugis Street, close to which I stayed. I actually love places like Singapore where you can just be!
I would close this post with this picture from the Botanic Garden, which is the UNESCO World Heritage Site in Singapore. See Sy, I went there after all!
Singapore is an easy country when it comes to the dress code for women. You can dress the way you like. The only places that do require some attention are the places of worship.
There are many firsts associated for me with Singapore. My first international trip was to Singapore, way back in 1999. My first business class flight was with Singapore Airline on the Delhi-Singapore route in 2015! It was doubly amazing as the aircraft was A380! Though the flight to Singapore was recent I continued to Kota Kinabalu with Silk Air. I thoroughly enjoyed the Changi Airport but I have not been to the city state after 1999. I hope that will change soon and I will get a chance to immerse myself in Singapore!
Since my visit a lot has changed in Singapore! I was browsing through all the ‘All in One of A Kind Singapore Videos and my pick is certainly the Wild & Wow. The Secret Quarry at Pulau (means an island) Ubin looks just my kind of place! I loved walking, I love nature and I can get lost in those shades of green! Rural villages are my scene too!
The S.E.A. Aquarium looks amazing in the video, I can’t remember when I last visited an aquarium, so the place looks doubly attractive.
However it is Changi that makes me even more excited. You may ask what is there in an Airport and I would say Changi is different. First of all they have amazing internet speed to keep you connected to the world while you wait for your flight! Then there is shopping. But as I am not much of a shopper anyway, for me the attractions like the butterfly park, kinetic rain and orchid park are the places to go!
If you are planning to visit Singapore or just browse through to get a feel of the place you could start at the official page of the Singapore Tourism Board! If you are partial to a particular social media channel you can find them on Twitter, Youtube, Google+ and Facebook.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quite my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
