DON'T


Spit

Spitting in public places is an offence. If caught, an individual can be fined up to $250-$300.

Smoke

Smoking is not permitted in public service vehicles, museums, libraries, lifts, theatres, cinemas, air-conditioned restaurants, hair salons, supermarkets, department stores and government offices. Offenders can be fined up to SGD 1,000. While it is an offence to smoke in air-conditioned eating places, smoking is permitted in air-conditioned pubs, discos, karaoke bars and nightspots. The Singapore authorities are cracking down on smoking and have launched an island wide anti-smoking campaign to dissuade Singaporeans from smoking. Visitors and tourists must be vigilant not to light up in a 'no smoking' venue. The penalty is very heavy and foreigners are not exempt.

Litter

Singapore is considered one of the cleanest, greenest cities in the world. Littering or throwing cigarette butts on the road is an offense. If caught, an individual can be fined up to $250.

Bribe

Singapore is one of the few countries in the world, where corruption is negligible. The giver and receiver of a bribe are guilty of corruption and on conviction shall be liable to a fine not exceeding $100,000 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years or both.
