If you are planning to experience advanced living in SG, we have some guides and tips in terms of rules and regulations in the country.

Remember these dos and don’ts:

  • Chewing gum is prohibited and the SG government is very strict about this. Even purchasing gum is prohibited unless it is for medical purposes. If you don’t follow and still do this, you will face a first-offender fine.
  • Littering is prohibited in Singapore. There are bins everywhere where you can throw your garbage. This is one of the strict rules in the country and the result is just amazing as to how clean the surrounding is.
  • Do not smoke in public. E-cigarettes are also banned in SG.
  • Jaywalking is also not allowed and if you are caught breaking this rule, you will be facing a serious punishment.

  • If you are quite on a tight budget, avoid using taxis. This mode of transportation is expensive. Instead, try the state of the art MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) and explore SG like a local! This country has an efficient transportation system, one of the best in the world.
  • Tap water in SG is drinkable. The water is of high standard and perfectly safe for drinking.
  • Bring some cash always.
  • Experience eating in Hawker centers. They have great foods at affordable prices.
  • Don’t drink or eat in the MRT. It is  a “no eating or drinking” zone.
  • Respect the locals and dress properly.
  • Be mindful of your gestures. Pointing at someone, shouting or talking loudly and spitting in public are considered rude.
  • Avoid discussing sensitive topics like politics and religion.
