5 Things You Absolutely Must Not Do When Travelling in Singapore

Travel 141_Asia Travel Club_Don'ts When Travelling in Singapore

Travelling to a new country sure is fun and exciting—especially if it comes with a free stay at one of Asia Travel Club’s hotel partners in Singapore. But then again, it can also be intimidating because you’ll need to get yourself acquainted with the culture, the language and even the laws. And it’s even more important to educate yourself about all these if the country your visiting is famed for its strict laws and unique quirks—just like Singapore. Now, if your coming to this side of Asia, remember these five don’ts for a stress-free stay in Singapore.

Don’t cut the queue

Whether it’s a queue for the train or for some popular chicken rice, don’t try to get ahead by cutting the line. Just be patient and wait for your turn like everybody else.

Don’t litter

From candy wrappers to cigarette butts, aim right when you throw your rubbish in the bin because if it doesn’t hit the mark, you may end up with a costly $300 fine. If you litter bigger items such as plastic bags and cups, then be prepared to shell out as much as $1,000 or render up to 12 hours of community service.

Don’t chew gum

Do you chew gum regularly? You might consider ditching the habit or picking up a new one before your visit to Singapore. Unless you need to chew gum for medical reasons, chewing gum is actually banned in Singapore.

Don’t smoke just anywhere

Smoking whenever and wherever is also shunned upon in Singapore. When you smoke, make sure you do so at a designated smoking area which is often away from busy areas.

Don’t jaywalk

You may consider yourself an expert jaywalker but be careful where you cross in Singapore! Always play it safe and only cross at designated pedestrian lanes when the green man lights up.

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

When choosing places to visit in Asia, doing research is a must especially when planning an itinerary.  You can group attractions that are near to your hotel on one day and the places that will take you an hour or more from your hotel on another day. You also have to research on which mode of transportations is convenient and safe.

 

3. Familiarize yourself with the surroundings and language

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Travellers nowadays are very lucky because mobile phones make it easy to do virtually anything. From finding hotel locations to translating languages, you can do it on your phone. But of course, before travelling for 2019, it’s wise to read up on local culture and area to know which place to tick off your list first. It’s also a must that you know a few basic words and phrases to make it easier to communicate with the locals.

 

4. Exchange currency in advance

Next tip on our list of travel tips is to make sure you exchange currency in advance. Even if you think those credit cards can save you from all your travel expenses including food, entrance fees, and shopping, it’s still important to stack some cash in your wallet.

 

5. Pack clothes that are suitable for your destination

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You don’t wear jackets in tropical countries like Thailand or Philippines, don’t ya? Or, wear tank tops to South Korea or Japan on a winter season? You’ll look weird not only to the locals but to other travellers too. Make sure to know the weather when you’re visiting so you know which kind of clothes to pack. Then again, try to pack light if you plan to go on several shopping sprees.

 

6. Bring a backpack or a tiny purse

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Adventure travellers and solo backpackers can relate to this! You don’t need to bring your huge, luxurious Gucci bag if you want to enjoy hiking or walking. Make sure you pack a bag or backpack that can store all your basic essentials when you’re out and about. Doing this will spare you from the hassle of lugging around a big bag especially if you plan to take the bus or train.

 

7. Make some local friends

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

You know what’s the best thing about travelling to different places? You can make many friends! This is why it’s good to practice your English and learn basic greetings. When you make local friends, you’ll surely have fresh news on the latest trends that are happening in their country so you could make more interesting travel plans and ideas the next time you visit them.

 

8. Have fun and enjoy your travel!

Travel smart while having fun with these travel tips for your 2019 travels | Travelling for 2019 | Travel141

Now go and make more memories!

 

Bonus: Hire a private car with a driver

Many people think that dehydrated skin means having to drown your skin with heavy creams and oil-based products. The truth is, hydrating your skin means adding water and not oil to your skin cells for smooth and healthy skin. Invest in moisture-magnet skincare products like the Porcelain Triple Moisture Kit which helps flush the skin with moisture, control excess sebum and oil and soothe inflamed skin.

P.S. Porcelain’s Botanical Soothing Gel, a part of this kit, is a NEW reformulation with peach, yoshino cherry, aloe vera, peony, and mountain pepper extracts to soothe, moisturize, heal, protect from UV rays, while being rich in anti-oxidants. Rosemary and sage oil offer extra anti-bacterial benefits, while sodium hyaluronate and allantoin give skin an additional moisture boost. It’s also infused with a light floral scent with all the lush botanical ingredients!

Never touch zits with dirty hands or try to pop them! It will only irritate and cause inflammation and in worst cases, scarring. And before you reach for your favourite acne-busting treatment, wash your hands.

Acne is often caused by excess sebum and p.acne bacteria in your skin. Use a gentle, deep cleansing wash that contains ingredients like coconut, aloe vera. sage, tea tree to help moisturize and soothe while keeping inflammation and bacteria at bay. Then, follow with an alcohol-free, hydrating toner that restores the skin’s natural pH level, exfoliates dead skin cells, and tones the skin while visibly reducing pore size and fine lines. Top up with a good essence to control excess sebum, hydrate with sodium hyaluronate and control acne with tea tree oil. Regenerate and revitalize your skin to a youthful glow those irritating acne and blackheads.

Try Porcelain’s Ultimate Acne Busters Kit – the definitive SOS kit for acne-afflicted complexions, and contains what Porcelain fans consider as the go-to stars when hormones go haywire, and acne rears its many ugly heads.

The reason we emphasize hydrating your skin is because hydration is key to looking young. Dehydration is one of the main causes of wrinkles — even on the eyes and neck area! What you see is what you get with our personal favourite, the Triple Mask Prep & Revitalize Kit — a set of super-hydrating and nourishing masking products for your face and eyes.

We heard the Hydrocare- Bio-Cellulose Mask comes with a whopping 30ml of serum so you can squeeze and keep the remainder out for use afterwards — in a really cute little 3ml dropper bottle that’s included in the kit.
