Packing for Singapore
Situated narrowly north of the equator, Singapore enjoys a tropical climate and is hot and humid all year round. Temperatures average 31° C so pack for intense heat. Suncream, sunglasses and a hat are essentials, and it’s also a good idea to include some long-sleeved shirts to keep your arms away from the sunshine. Be prepared for rainfall during the two monsoon seasons from December to March. If you’re travelling during these months, waterproofs are wise. Remember your swimming gear if you’re beach-bound, and check whether your accommodation provides beach towels – you may need to bring your own.
Ship your bike to Singapore
There are numerous cycle paths in Singapore. The Bedok Reservoir Park route is ideal for children, with refreshing breezes offering a reprieve from the heat. The Punggol Coastline and Rivers route is 26km of promenade and parks, and Pasir Ris to East Coast Park routes passes the Sandbank district, a foodie haven. For mountain biking, the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve has a network of challenging climbs and relaxing descents set amongst the city’s jungle garden. Luggage Mule can ship your bike to Singapore at reasonable rates, giving you the chance to ride these superb trails on your own wheels.
Ship your golfing gear to Singapore
Singapore has more golf courses per square-km than any other country on Earth. Singapore’s most famous course is the 36-hole Sentosa Golf Club course which annually hosts the Singapore Open, known colloquially as Asia’s Major. Other courses of note can be found at Marina Bay Golf, Changi Golf Club, and Tanah Merah Country Club. Luggage Mule can ship your bike to Singapore at reasonable rates, giving you the chance to enjoy these great courses with your own clubs. If you’re keen to try multiple trails in the region, ship your bike to Changi airport and hire a car to get around – as a city-state, all golf courses are a few hours’ drive from the city centre.
What to ship home from Singapore
Singapore has many items you’ll want to take home with you. Bottles of the cocktail Singapore Sling, created in the Long Bar of Raffles Hotel, are a lively purchase. A foodie choice is kaya, coconut jam, and for cultural items visit the city’s ethnic quarters such as Chinatown, Little India & Kampong Glam. With a generous 30kg allowance, our luggage shipping service allows you to buy your favourite Singaporean items and have them delivered to your door.
