rules for chewing gum

by bijan_sh1802

i,ve heard that having or using chewing gums in singapore are prohibited. is that right ?

Re: rules for chewing gum

by MikeySoft

I information about chewing gum may be out dated but a few years ago, it could not be sold in Singapore but many locals went to JB, Malaysia just across the border to buy it.

Re: rules for chewing gum

The import and sale of chewing gum is banned in Singapore. While the actual chewing of gum is not actually covered by the law (except for therapeutic purposes) But since it is a banned substance, attempting to bring some in is the same as smuggling.

Re: rules for chewing gum

Only chewing gums can be sold in Singapore that are needed for health reason, i.e. gums for people who stop smoking. But to buy them you must present an ID in the shop. So still extremely restricted.

There were attempts to stop the prohibition but they have failed.

Re: rules for chewing gum

As others have mentioned, the importation and sale of chewing gum is not allowed. If you you bring in small quatities it will be confiscated if found. If you bring large quantities, for resale you will be fined.
You are allowed to be in possesion and can even chew gum openly however with no problems in Singapore.

Take it easy friend. I always take a few chewing gums with me. The only thing you shall be careful about is, no1. Quantity (no big boxes), you can bring a few in your suitcase..I always had a few in my pockets too... , second and the most important, is do not consume inside the public transport (subways/undergrounds). Out side on the road we can have it but shall always dispose it off properly in dustbins. Singapore is a very friendly, efficient place.

Re: rules for chewing gum

Yes, buying chewing gums is prohibited in Singapore. However, consuming chewing gums is not. Just remember to dispose of it in a rubbish bin and not on the floor.

You won't get to buy any chewing gum in Singapore, but you could bring in some from your country though, keep in mind to bring only a reasonable quantity for personal consumption.

Re: rules for chewing gum

by Fluffy_bunny

Sorry, that is simply not true. While the sale of chewing gum is banned in Singapore, and so is the IMPORT of it. (The only gum permitted is for therapeutic reasons). In all likely hood the consequences for attempt to import this illegal substance would be confiscation, there are possible fines and even jail times.

Please be careful when spreading misinformation to travellers, especially with regards to the importation of banned substances.

Using of chewing gum is NOT prohibited.

Travel Tips for Singapore

Travel and Eat cheap in Singapore

by Chyan

Depending on your location when you arrive in Singapore, the zoo will be nearer to you. The bird park in Jurong may be further from you. If you want to taste healthy good food in Singapore, i recommend you to eat cargo brown rice + vegetarian food at a cheap price at People's Park Centre, Chinatown, where festivity action is taking place nearby. Those traditional Singapore food can be more expensive than vegetarian food.

Keep your SIA Boarding Pass

by Carino

Singapore Airlines is not only a world class airline but also offers services on the ground. When you arrive in Singapore, keep your SIA Boarding Pass with you and get discounts at many places, like Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, Singapore Zoo, Sentosa, Clarke Quay and many more.

Be sure to pick up the Boarding Pass Privileges brochure at the airport or log onto http://www.singaporeair.com/boardingpass to check on the current discounts.

Statues

by phil_uk_net

There are lots of these statues around Singapore and I really like them. I like the theme of depicting every day scenes from past times, and I like the way they are positioned - not on plinths but down at ground level where people walk by.

Singlish

by biggeorge

Most people in SIngapore speak Singlish , which is a kind of dialect. Taxi drivers particulary look at you blankly when you say you're destination , but understand immediatley when you say it in what you'd imagine to be a comedic oriental accent, just drop all the t's and you'll be halfway there.

You will sweat!

by mcrane2004

Nothing specific, but there is an excellent left luggage service at Changi airport It is ridiculously hot and sticky, shorts and T-shirt are the order of the day, you cannot comprehend how humid it is untill you get there Plenty of water, you dehydrate quickly Always take a camera, wherever you are travelling!
