Go to Orchard Road. Plenty of shops to browse through in the comfort of airconditioning. You are able to visit the historic museums and galleries and the colonial buildings and the many temples.

Singapore has such a lot to offer culturally.

Dear Karen,

1. Singapore is always either hot and humid or raining in downpours. So over the years, the City has got smart in providing adequate sheltered walkways connecting Mrt train stations to Bus Interchange, bus stops etc through out the Island. It is to facilitate daily life to go on despite our weather. Although it is still a work in progress, most shopping Malls whether in the suburbs or city centre are now linked by covered walkways and tunnels.

2. Tourists Attractions have also got wise to keep their visitors happy by catering rain shelters and many indoors/ covered interests. However, as also suggested by others here, a foldable brolly would suffice to visit any tourists attraction on your itinerary here. Generally, rains comes in heavy downpours but over in a very short periods. Welcome and do not be deterred or unduly concerns with the rain here.

Gardens by the Bay, Marina Sands.. one of the many shopping centres. I think you can do anything because the rain will cool you down. It's so damn hot!

During our recent 4 day stay we had no rain. We had a few drops one afternoon, however with temp in 30s, no one tried to dodge the drops.. Garden by the bay rain forest, all inside, might be a consideration. This is well worth seeing.

Flyer would also be OK, although view would be better on clear day.

Visit the National Museum, Temples, shopping or have a food feast for an extended length of time. The down time can be nice too if you have a lot planned for your visit.

it did rain briefly one afternoon during my visit, 30 mins at the most then it got very humid. ( I took some down time and had a lengthy seafood lunch)

Good luck and Enjoy!!

Singapore in wet weather, is not something I have experienced during either of my two visits. However, the group of friends I travelled with a couple of weeks ago, was led by one friend, who has been there over a dozen times. Her advice was to bring a small, fold up umbrella, which could go into a bag. She told us that there would always be buildings into which we could escape, should there be a deluge. From my limited experience, this is correct. Everywhere we went, including Chinatown with all its stalls, there were many shops to go into. Just go and enjoy this beautiful city. :)

The Chinatown area has undercover areas, shops, and Bhuddas temple.

Otherwise, I think the main Singapore gallery and Supreme Court. The building is so historical and architectally interesting.

Cafes and shop also interesting.

Converted recently the size means lifts for the less able and friendly staff too.

You can sit and read in the cafe , so bring a book. It passes a few hours, I went alone as husband and duaghter went on treetop walk.

There are plenty of beautiful museums to visit at very reasonable costs, or a bus tour.
