Few Do’s and Don’ts To Know Before Your Singapore Tour

by Alap Patel Travel & Tour
Singapore is a beautiful and modern country with latest infrastructure and advance facilities. However, when it comes to cleanliness and safety they are more concerned and cautious. And that seems to be very valid reason because Singapore is one of the largest business hub and tourist location in Asia. Millions of people travel to Singapore every year for leisure or business purpose. Singapore which got its independence in 1965, developed into the most modern and advance country within a short span of 50 years. The simple reason of their speedy development is passion to grow their country into the best countries of the world. And as a traveller, it is important that we ensure their cultural terms. If you are planning to take a Singapore tour package from Mumbai or any part of India, we have listed some of the Do’s and Don’ts which can be useful during your visit.

Confirm Food Prices

If you are dining at a restaurant or visiting a roadside food stall, always ask the price of food before ordering it. Although the look and feel of the dining place may not appear so appealing but the cost of the food can be on the higher side. Once you have ordered, even if you do not consume or carry it with you, the bill will arrive at your table.

Copying Metro Guide

Get a copy of Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) guide which will help you in travelling across the city in cheaper rates. You will be saved from getting into traffic jams and wasting time in the cab. The metro trains in Singapore are well connected and facilitated.

Reserved Seats

If you visit any food stall at the roadside and observe pack of tissue paper or umbrella placed on the table then probably the table has been reserved. Confirm the same from the food hawker and then reserve your table. Singaporeans have the habit of reserving their seats with these items. The street hawker crowd are better to be avoided and look for better tables.

Bargaining a Must

If you are shopping at the local street store then do not forget to use your bargaining skills. Most of the goods in Singapore tour are imported from China and you can find good quality stuff at cheap rates. Although the listed price can be too high, you can try your best to get the best bargain.

Dress Appropriately

If you are planning to visit any of the religious places or temples in Singapore then wearing short dresses or skin show is not recommended. Singaporeans, especially in religious places are bit prudish.

No-No to Littering

At any point or location, the National Environmental Agency (NEA) officer might be mingling around you dressed in plain clothes (no uniform), just like other Singaporeans. If you are caught littering at any location, you will either have to pay heavy penalty or participate in Corrective Work Order.

Tipping is Good

If you are travelling from Mumbai or any part of India where no tip is not considered as a part of the culture or bad manners. In Singapore, whether you are satisfied with the service or not, tipping the taxi driver, waiters or any service provider is good manners. However, it is not demanded but expected.

Do Not Throw Your Bills

Bold and clear, please keep all your bills and receipts with you until you reach the Singapore airport. At the airport depart, you have the chances of getting reclaim for goods and GST taxes you have paid in Singapore. If you have spent some time in the Orchard Road then you are liable for the refund of the same.

We hope the above Do’s and Don’ts of Singapore will help you during the visit. Keep us posted with your experience and let us know if you have something new to update the list.
