10 things not to do in singapore

 

Chewing Gum without a Prescription

 

Chewing Gum without a Prescription

If someone is headed to Singapore and has gum in the bag, it’s better to remove it, as chewing gum is banned in Singapore. Unless one has a medical prescription, the answer is a big fat NOWHERE.

Penalty: SGD 701.19

 

Littering

 

Littering

The waste disposal system in Singapore is already efficient, but strict discipline and neatness are always helpful. As a result, Singaporeans may not be recycling regularly but now is the time to get into the habit.

Singapore also punishes littering as a criminal offense. Depending on the situation, you may be ordered to do community service or pay a fine of up to $1,000.

There are ways to avoid either of these penalties if one doesn’t want to do either. For example, never spit in public or place trash where it belongs.

Penalty:  SGD 1402.38

 

Vandalizing

 

Vandalizing

Public property can be robbed, destroyed, or defaced under Singapore’s Vandalism Act. In addition, there is a S$2,000 fine or a three-year jail sentence if you spray paint, attach posters or stickers, draw, mark, or write on them.

Singapore’s art jamming centers can fulfill your need for creative expression. Draw, paint, dance, and express yourself without causing any damage to anyone’s property.

Penalty: 3-year imprisonment or SGD 2,000

 

Forgetting to Flush the Toilet

 

Forgetting to Flush the Toilet

Most people flush their toilets after they use them. This is why some people find it funny that it is illegal to not flush after using the washroom in a public place.

Additionally, a fine of $150 may be imposed. It’s a good idea not to leave something undesirable without flushing in public restrooms, as random checks are performed.

Due to the regular inspections performed by plumbers in Singapore, it is rare to encounter a defective toilet that won’t flush.

Penalty: SGD 210.36

 

Eating on Public Transportation

 

Eating on Public Transportation

Taking a water bottle anywhere in Singapore on the bus or train is possible. When it’s hot out, it’s perfectly okay to take a sip of water now and then to prevent dehydration.

Bringing a full meal (or worse, leftover chili crabs in a Tupperware container!) can earn you stink eyes from fellow passengers. As stipulated by the Rapid Transit Systems Act, eating on public transport can cost around $500.

Penalty: SGD 701.19
