Penalty Signs
Penalty Signs | Source

Singapore is a FINE city.

To keep the country clean and tidy, there are rules everywhere, including no littering, no spitting on the ground, do not cross the road except at the pedestrian lights, no consuming of food on public transports and no urinating in lifts.

Offenders will have to pay heavy fines. Another penalty is the Corrective Work Order (CWO) which requires offenders to wear luminous workclothes embossed with the letters CWO and then make them clean up public areas. The punishment obviously works, who in their right mind would want to be named and shamed in public?

      I must agree with that, Singapore are the cleanest and safest city in whole world. It's one of the smallest country in the world but they have a great economy compared to other countries in Asia. Such a gorgeous place to be with specially their newly opened Resorts World Sentosa. Also the people of Singapore really have a discipline and great attitudes.

      Singapore is a thriving hub and has certainly got it's massive share of tourists. It has a great night life and some top tourists attractions, all of which you have covered in this hub. Although I must say that I found Changi airport to be a bit over rated. I had heard so much about it but when I landed it left me slightly disappointed. Yes, it is massive and has shop after shop after shop of goods at cheap prices and lots of things to do. But I've seen better airports from an aesthetic viewpoint. However the other tourist attractions in Singapore city more than made up for the initial dejection at Changi.

      Great hub, this is a great guide for anyone planning to travel to Singapore! I'm sharing it with friends and followers.

      princess, Singapore is a popular stopover destination in Asia. I guess the Changi airport got most of the votes from visitors who had plenty of time to hang around and leave feedback. Time is never enough for me when I am on holiday! Yes, I agree, I have been to other airports that deserve better ratings than what they have received.

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving comment. Cheers.

      kimberlymoore668, thank you for mentioning the Universal Studios. I probably left that out because it is part of the Resorts World Sentosa and most people will find the Universal Studios when they visit Resorts World. Good to hear that you liked the place. Maybe later I will add a sentence or two about the attraction. Thank you for leaving a feedback here :)

      lady rain 4 years ago from Australia

      kimberlymoore668, smoking is not allowed in most public areas in Singapore, both indoors and outdoors. Offenders can be fined up to $1000. There are designated areas for smokers in pubs, you'll have to ask just to be sure and not get fined!

      I remember my father, when he made several trips to Singapore in the seventies, very often appointed the magnificent hotels, including Jaja-Puri hotel where inside, the lobby I believe, had been set up a real equatorial garden.

These places came to live with glitters of colourful lights. It is a wonderful experience.
