Butt out and chew carefully in Singapore
Smoking laws are more severe in Singapore than they are in North America. Lighting up in public – in restaurants, on the street, in a park—will earn a stiff fine in this Asian country. Gum chewers aren’t exempt from tough regulations either. It’s illegal to chomp gum while riding on Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system, and like smoking, this offence is punishable with a fine.
