Traveling for Work: Singapore
The weather is an issue – it’s always between 80 – 90 degrees Fahrenheit with varying levels of humidity (lots or lots and lots) and this has created a distinctive way of dressing for business. Men frequently wear suit shirts with ties, but no jacket or simply a suit shirt with trousers. Women wear frequently wear shift dresses made of silk with a jacket for the chilly indoors, as I’ve done here.
One difference about doing work in Asia is the number of meals I eat in hotels. Unlike the historic trend in the States of hotel restaurants not being very good, hotels in Asia have typically housed some of the area’s best restaurants. In Singapore it’s a recent trend to have sophisticated restaurants outside of hotels. For my meeting on this day, I was having lunch at the beautiful Fullerton Bay Hotel (pictures below).
How do you deal with workwear in the heat? We’ll all be dealing with it soon for the summer months ahead!
