Without Googling, what do you think is the average height in Singapore? You’d definitely have two answers, of course: one’s for the guys and one’s for the ladies.
Take a second to guess before we reveal the answer. Go on, do it; I’ll wait.
Well, here are the facts.
Average Height in Singapore for Males & Females (Are You Above Or Below Average?)
The average Singaporean height, comprising both male and female, is 165.5 cm. The average height for a male Singaporean is 171 cm while the average height for a female Singaporean is 160.
So, are you above or below average?

And here’s one more interesting fact: the average height for a male Malaysian is 165 cm while the average height for a female Malaysian is 153 cm.
The average for the entire ASEAN region is 164 cm for males and 153 cm for females.
Fascinating, isn’t it?
But before you get too happy, here’s one more fact: in the US, the average height for males is 177 cm and female is 163 cm.
Interestingly enough, you can’t retrieve a reliable number for the average height for the world, as the study would be too extensive.
Some regions might allow people to self-report their height instead of measuring it physically (to save cost), resulting in people inflating their height. Pretty sure that’s very common; my boss has been telling everyone he’s 180 cm when he looks less than 170 cm.
If you’re still insecure about your height, there’re shoes that can make you look taller. Called Elevator Shoes, they work by adding up to 12cm to the shoes’ heels.
