One of the biggest mistakes a tourist can make is snacking at a train station (known locally as an MRT) or on a train. Why would anyone want to visit an oppressive police state where torture is the bulk of their legal system? Throwing garbage and spitting in public are taken very seriously in Singapore, a country that prides itself on its reputation for cleanliness. It is often said in the media and in movies that Singapore has very clean streets where people can walk around without having to worry about garbage. A fine of up to S$1,000 may be imposed on a first-time offender. If someone breaks the law again, they can get a correction order and a fine of up to S$2,000. The rule that you can`t spit in public is just one of many important rules for keeping a city clean and healthy. If you are caught doing this disgusting thing, you will have to pay a $1,000 fine. If you`re caught spitting, you may have to pay a fine or do community service to clean up a specific area. In fact, it`s important to understand Singapore`s laws before you go there. This can get quite difficult in some cases. Do not take durians to public buildings, subway, bus, etc. Don`t hug anyone without permission.
And so on. Nevertheless, at noon, I saw a group of pedestrians in Chinatown – obviously, there were no police near 🙂 Singapore`s commitment to cleanliness and order extends to tap water. The water supply is maintained at a high level of security and remains completely healthy for tourists and locals alike. Since tap water is also free for guests at most restaurants and restaurants, it`s easy to make sure the body stays well hydrated from tropical heat and humidity. Here are seven things tourists should never do in Singapore. You must avoid any act that could be interpreted as harassment. It is believed that there are scams with false allegations of harassment. Penalties for convicted offenders include a fine, imprisonment and/or corporal punishment (corporal punishment).
Some of them affect extremely common human habits, like chewing gum and being naked in your own home! To make sure you don`t end up in hot water, here are some of Singapore`s other laws you should know before you go, as well as a guide on what not to do in Singapore. The best known of the laws is probably Singapore`s chewing gum law. Chewing gum is totally banned in Singapore. This includes selling chewing gum, importing or importing chewing gum into Singapore, and spitting it out is the worst crime of all. All this is very true! Every time I land in Singapore, there is always a reference to the death penalty for drugs on landing. I had no idea I was flushing! This is new to my ears. But overall, Singapore is extremely clean and safe, I would never think of breaking any of these rules, even in London (well, maybe jaywalking, but locals understand it like New Yorkers :D). When I lived there, it didn`t really make a difference, but all the travelers asked me about the rules and they are indeed true. Another rule is what you can and can not put on the MRI (transport system) durian fruit is forbidden and you can get fined, but things smell, the hotel where I worked also banned it to guests who were taken to the hotel, you can still feel it from the check-in counter, So a good rule indeed! 🙂 A police permit is required for any public gathering or open-air procession. They should avoid street gatherings and public demonstrations as they may be illegal. It is forbidden to film an illegal public gathering, as well as to wear or show material without permission. You`re more likely to be bitten with a fine for things that seem to be tolerated at home.
Spitting, garbage and smoking in public places are punishable by fines of up to SGD 1,000. Singapore has such high hygiene and safety standards that even tap water is clean. Due to strict safety rules, tourists and locals can drink clean water. Although it`s hot and humid in the tropics, it`s easy to stay hydrated, as tap water is usually free for guests at most restaurants. There are always rumours and stories about fines, jail sentences, and death sentences in Singapore that might deter travelers, so it was worth reading this article. I was not sure that they had abolished the Chewing Gum Act in 2004. I still really enjoyed my two visits to Singapore and found that the strict laws only made me feel safer. The apartments cannot be rented to tourists.
Rental is only allowed for visitors with student cards or long-term passes for social visits. With the popularity of hawker centers and other restaurants, it makes sense that people are often able to book a table while ordering food. People often put personal items on the table, including items ranging from tissues to umbrellas to bottled water, to mark this table as their own.
