Singapore Travel Tips
- Singapore has laws relating to jaywalking, littering, chewing gum, smoking in illegal areas or dropping cigarette butts that are all strictly enforced. You will be fined if caught.
- The family is at the centre of the social structure in Singapore and elders are greatly respected. Elders are introduced first, are given preferential seating and are given the choicest food. When in Singapore make sure you follow suit and respect the older generation.
- There are different ways to meet and greet in Singapore. The older generations expect traditional greetings. The ethnic Chinese will shake hands, ethnic Indians shake hands with members of the same sex (members of the opposite should bow the head and smile). Ethnic Malays shake hands between men, but otherwise bowing the head is a safe bet. If in doubt wait for the local to make the first move.
- Be mindful of temple etiquette, when invited to a private home or entering a temple or mosque, remove your shoes.
