Singapore Safety and Precautions for Indians
· Singapore is known to be the 6th safest country in the world. However, owing to its large influx of tourists, here are some things you need to be cautious about:
· Be aware of pickpocketing in tourist friendly areas, including the airport!
· When it comes to laws, Singapore can be extremely strict. Therefore, make sure you follow all laws rigorously to avoid hefty fines. And yes, that includes throwing even a piece of paper! However, in case of a legit legal problem, your travel insurance will protect and cover for you.
· Commonly found in Singapore and other Asian countries, don’t fall for scam monks and nuns asking for donations. Real Buddhist monks and nuns are not likely to do that!
Be wary of buying knock-off brands. Since it’s a popular shopping destination for tourists, you may find people selling fake brands for a lower price only to lure you in.
