Surrounding this universal studio which covers an area of ​​about 20 hectares, of course you need a lot of drinking water intake so you don’t get dehydrated. Especially with the weather in Singapore which is fairly hot and the many areas with open skies will easily make you hot and thirsty.

However, travelers are of course very aware that the price of drinking water in Singapore is many times higher than in the country, especially in tourist attractions such as the USS. For that as much as possible you should be able to save expenses on buying drinking water by bringing your own drinking bottle.

In each rest area and toilet at USS, there is a drinking water refilling area for visitors. Generally in each thematic zone, a place to fill water is always there. So, you can refill your drinking place while walking around without fear of thirst or buy drinking water for 2 Singapore dollars.

8. Wear comfortable clothes and footwear

Remember, walking around and trying the many rides at Universal Studio Singapore will make you walk all day and also feel stifling. So, wear your version of the most comfortable clothes and footwear. Don’t just because you need a photo, you force yourself to wear an outfit that actually annoys you.

Light shoes or sandals, t-shirts and casual clothes with simple designs are perfect for exploring this kind of theme park .

9. Bring a Hat and Umbrella

Having a climate and weather that is more or less the same as in Indonesia, the weather in Singapore can be very hot. But not infrequently, even in the midst of hot weather rain can fall unexpectedly. So, considering that part of the USS area is outdoors with open skies, you are strongly advised to bring a hat or umbrella to protect you from the scorching heat of the sun, or from rain that can pour at any time.

10. Bring a raincoat or change of clothes

If you are going to ride the Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure ride, you are absolutely obliged to bring a disposable raincoat or change of clothes. Why? Because this water ride, which is similar to the “rafting” ride at Dunia Fantasi Jakarta, will take you around the river with the effects of shaking and sliding tracks that cause the water to scatter and make you wet.

In the area where the queue enters, raincoats are sold at a price of 5 SGD or around Rp. 50 thousand. It will be more economical if you buy it in Indonesia for only Rp. 10 thousand, moreover the shape and quality is exactly the same as what you find on USS. The difference is that the raincoat on the USS has the USS logo on the back. In addition, a raincoat is also useful if it rains on the USS.

Those are some tips that you can try when visiting Universal Studio Singapore . Hopefully the tips above can be useful and make your trip more enjoyable and memorable.
