INTRODUCTION TO SINGAPORE
Singapore is a sovereign state, The Republic of Singapore is a Commonwealth country located at the tip of the Malaysian peninsula occupying an area of 622 square kilometres. Singapore was formerly part of Malaysia which later gained independence from Britain in 1957. Eight years later in 1965, Singapore broke away from Malaysia and become a sovereign state in its own right. Because of its close past connections with Britain, the business language remains English and the English common law system applies. (http://www.sovereigngroup.com/contact-sovereign/worldwideoffices/asia/singapore.htm) The English name of Singapore is derived from the Malay word Singapura .(Lion City), hence the customary reference to the nation as the Lion City. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singapore) Within 45 years of independence, Singapore has emerged as a globally connected, multicultural and cosmopolitan city-state. Singapore’s population currently stands at 4.99 million, with about 1.79 million non-Singaporeans - about 1 in every 3 residents are foreigners residing in Singapore. The country also has one of the highest per capita GDP in Asia, exceeding US$30,000 in less than a generation. Singapore’s cultural mix reflects the nation’s history as an island of immigrants s ince its founding by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819. Like the welcome extended to the early immigrants who flocked to Singapore from China and India during the 19th and early 20th centuries, Singapore continues to embrace global talent who want to make a difference here. With an open-door policy towards global talent, innovation and trade, Singapore presents many opportunities for pioneers, entrepreneurs and aspiring individuals and families. The diverse communities make up Singapore’s unique and vibrant culture, with people from all over the world calling Singapore their home. (https://home-in-singapore.sg/Default.aspx?tabid=2498)

WEATHER AND CLIMATE
The average temperature is between 25 ˚Celsius and 31 ˚Celsius True to its Southeast Asian location, Singapore is characterised by a hot and humid climate. Located just 1 degree north of the equator, it quite naturally enjoys a tropical/equatorial climate. The island does not have clear-cut seasons like summer, spring, autumn and winter. The weather is warm and humid all year round. Rainfall is almost an everyday phenomenon, even during the non-monsoon period. These brief showers are usually quite refreshing, as they provide respite from the sun. Due to its geographical location and maritime exposure, Singapore’s climate is characterized by uniform temperature and pressure, high humidity and abundant rainfall.. Thunderstorms occur on 40% of all days. Relative humidity is in the range of 70% – 80%. April is the warmest month, January is the coolest month and November is the wettest month.

CHANGI AIRPORT
The seventh busiest international airport today, Changi Airport is a major air hub in Asia, Serving more than 100 international airlines flying to some 220 cities in about 60 countries and territories worldwide, Changi Airport handled more than 46 million passengers in 2011 (that's more than 9 times the size of Singapore's population). A flight takes off or lands at Changi roughly once every 100 seconds. In a short span of seven years since Changi's opening, Terminal 1 received its first recognition as the world's best airport from Business Traveller (UK) in 1988. Two years later, Terminal 2 was unveiled to cope with Terminal 1's overwhelming success. More recently, the state-of-the art Terminal 3 opened in 2008.

GETTING AROUND SINGAPORE
MRT (TRAVEL ACROSS THE ISLAND WITH SMRT)
The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system is probably the fastest way to get around Singapore besides taxis. Besides being one of the cleanest transport systems in the world, the MRT provides scenic views of our heartland and city areas, with great access to almost every part of Singapore. You can download the train route map from www.smrt.com.sg and use it to navigate your way around our island. SMRT provides a host of ticketing schemes based on stored value smartcards to suit your needs – from standard one-time travel tickets to tourist concession passes. Stored value cards, locally known as ez-link cards, can be purchased from the TransitLink Ticket Office located at selected SMRT stations.

BUS (SINGAPORE’S BUS SERVICES NETWORK)
SBS Transit is Singapore’s major bus service operator. Operating convenient bus services all around Singapore, SBS Transit services also ply destinations that are less accessible. Most of their buses are equipped with air-conditioning and provides trunk, feeder, Express, Townlink and Premium services.

SMRT also operates the popular NightRider service, which is a safe and affordable alternative transport option for commuters who spend weekends partying till late. The 7

seven late night routes operate from the city to different housing estates of Singapore between 11:30 pm to 4 am.

TAXI (THE MOST CONVENIENT WAY AROUND)
You should be able to hail a cab without any problems in most parts of Singapore. You may want to remember though, that vehicles are not allowed to wait or even stop at parts of the roads with painted double yellow or jagged lines. It is always best to get a cab from one of the numerous taxi stands in Singapore – hotels and shopping centre taxi stands are a sure bet. If you’re travelling in a group or carrying a load of shopping or luggage, you may want to book a taxi to your designated location. Here are the hotlines for various taxi services in Singapore, which will come in handy if you end up in a more obscure part of the island where the traffic is sparse, or if you are unable to find a taxi during peak hours or any other reason. The city’s major cab companies are: Comfort Transportation Pte Ltd / CityCab Pte Ltd: (65) 6552 1111 Premier Taxis Pte Ltd: (65) 6476 8880 Maxi Cab: (65) 6535 3534 SMRT Taxis: (65) 6555 8888 (http://www.yoursingapore.com)

COMMUNICATION
It is very convenient to buy simcard in Singapore through 7-eleven, but they’re also sold at post offices, Cheers convenience stores, FairPrice supermarkets, and the customer service outlets of each telco. True to its Big Brotherly nature, the Singapore government requires that all SIM cards are registered at the time of purchase – just present your passport to the clerk and they’ll take care of it. Each of Singapore’s three main phone companies offers their own prepaid service: there’s thehi! Card from Singtel, Green Prepaid from Starhub, and the M Card from M1. The hi! Card is initially the best deal at just $8 for the SIM card plus $10 of stored credit, but it has no data service.

MEDICATION AND HEALTH
ROUTINE CHECK UPON ARRIVAL
You are not required to declare your medicines on your arrival in Singapore. However, as Customs Officers may perform routine checks, please have all the supporting documents ready with you for inspection when requested. The documents should be kept with you throughout your stay in Singapore. You are reminded not to sell or supply your medicines to anyone and to bring the remaining medicines with you when you leave Singapore.

AVAILABILITY OF MEDICINES IN SINGAPORE
If you need additional supplies of medicines while you are in Singapore, please seek advice from a pharmacist to verify whether the medicines you need are regulated as prescription medicines in Singapore. You would need to consult a medical practitioner in Singapore to obtain a prescription to purchase prescription medicines from pharmacies. If the medicines you need are not registered in Singapore and there are no suitable alternatives available locally, the doctor in Singapore may seek approval from the Pharmaceuticals & Biologics Branch, Therapeutic Products Division, Health Products Regulation Group for a permit to import the medicines.

SAFETY
Singapore is quite possibly the safest city on Earth. It's clean, well ordered, law and order is completely under control .If you get lost, just don't panic, Singapore is a multilingual society and everyone speaks English (Mandarin, Hindi, Malay and many others can also be heard). The trade-off for living in what some might consider being a sterile society is a very high degree of personal safety. There is enhanced security at key civilian installations. Religious or racial tensions have no place in Singapore and the government takes swift, decisive and severe action against drug traffickers etc. It is also considered to be one of the “least corrupt” cities in the world. Although there are many fines in place for smoking in public, jaywalking, chewing gum, it has an extremely low crime rate.

OTHER GENERAL INFO
TIME
Singapore is eight hours ahead of GMT. There is no daylight savings.

CLOTHING
Typical light-weight summer clothing is ideal for Singapore weather. However for official purposes, smart casuals and business formals are ideal.

FOOD & WATER
The standard of food hygiene and water quality is usually high, especially in larger centres, although in smaller cafes of remote areas, one cannot be very sure about the conditions. 11

Water is usually desalinated, and so normally safe to drink, but, it is better to use bottled water since most food centres do not serve service water. Please avoid drinking water unless it is clearly mentioned that the water is fit for consumption.

ELECTRICITY SOCKET
Voltage: 220-240 Volts. The socket type is of the BS 1363 standard (http://www.adaptelec.com/index.php?main_page=document_general_info&products_id= 222)

SHOPPING HOURS
Most of the shops in Singapore are open daily, all year round (except on the Chinese New Year and Christmas, when some businesses do close down), from 10 am to as late as 9 pm and even 10 pm (Shopping malls normally open 10am - 10pm). Shops in popular areas, such as Marina, Orchard Road, Geylang and Little India can sometime offer "extended shopping hours" (especially on weekends and before holidays), which means they stay open until midnight or even later, for a designated period of time. (http://www.metropolasia.com/Singapore_Shopping_and_Lifestyle_Guide/Opening-Hours)

LANGUAGE
The Singapore Government recognizes four official languages: English, Malay, Chinese, and Tamil. These official languages, along with a multitude of other languages, reflect Singapore's multiracial, multicultural and multilingual nature. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_of_Singapore)

LAW OF THE LAND
Singapore has been well-known as a "fine" city, which has been embedded with two different meanings. One as a fine city to be living in while another means fines that keeps the country in order

LITTERING
To maintain the clean and green city, there are strict laws against littering of any kind. Firsttime offenders face a fine of up to S$1,000. For repeat offenders--it's a fine of up to S$2,000 12

and a Corrective Work Order (CWO). The CWO requires litterbugs to spend a few hours cleaning a public place.

CHEWING GUM
As an extension of the "no littering" mantra, the import, sale and possession of chewing gum is banned. You are also not allowed to bring in chewing gum for your own consumption. In short, no chewing gum whatsoever. This rule was introduced because of the high cost and difficulty in removing stuck chewing gum from public premises.

SMOKING
Smoking is not allowed in public buses, taxis, lifts, theatres, cinemas, government offices, and in air-conditioned restaurants and shopping centres. First-time offenders face a maximum fine of S$1,000. Smoking is allowed in air-conditioned pubs, discos, karaoke bars and nightspots.

RELIGION & ETIQUETTE
Singapore is a secular multi-religious country due to its diverse ethnic mix of peoples originating from various countries. Most major religious denominations are present in Singapore. Major Religions in Singapore are Buddhism. Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Taoism. It's mandatory that you remove your shoes in places of worship. You should cover up your arms and legs in Indian temples and Muslim mosques. For women, a head covering is advisable. Use extreme caution when visiting mosques, perhaps seeking the permission of locals or the nearest person in authority to enter, and then ask where you may walk and what you may do. There may be areas where you aren't permitted to go, particularly if you're a woman. As for etiquette, don't use your left hand for greeting, gesturing, giving something to, or eating with a Malay, Indonesian, or Indian person—it's the hand traditionally used for toiletry purposes. Hindus are often vegetarian, Muslims don't eat pork and must abide by strict food preparation guidelines, and some Chinese may be devout Buddhist vegetarians. Check on dietary preferences before dining with multicultural company in Singapore.

13

BEHAVIOUR AND DRESS CODE
Rules are given as mandatory to follow within the island. Refrain from kissing or touching the opposite sex, as some communities might be offended. Note that it's common for men, particularly from the Indian subcontinent, to hold hands or interact affectionately.

PHOTOGRAPHY
In conclusion on the discussion on photography in public and private places in Singapore, so long as you are on a public place, there is very little that someone can do to stop you from taking photographs. If you are in a private place, the most that can happen to you is that you will be asked to leave, but no one can compel you to delete or surrender your photographs.

ALCOHOL
Alcohol law in Singapore is very strict and the country exercises stricter laws in terms of public conduct. Consumption or mere purchase of alcohol is not permitted to anyone below the age of 18. People who are found creating pandemonium in the public places under the influence of alcohol are subjected to heavy imprisonment of about three months and hefty fines are imposed

DRUGS
A definite no-no. The death penalty is mandatory for those convicted of trafficking, manufacturing, importing or exporting more than 15g of heroin, 30g of morphine, 30g of cocaine, 500g of cannabis, 200g of cannabis resin and 1.2kg of opium. Possessing these quantities is deemed as prima facie evidence of trafficking. In other words, if you possess these quantities (and possession means you had control of them), you are deemed to be a trafficker and therefore subject to the death penalty.

14

SINGAPORE CUSTOMS
Under Singapore laws, arriving travellers need to pay taxes to bring in cigarettes or other tobacco products, liquor products or other taxable goods exceeding the duty-free concession and Goods and Services Tax (GST) relief. You must declare your goods to the checking officer at the Red Channel. You can also proceed to pay taxes at Singapore Customs Tax Payment office or use the selfservice Tax Payment Kiosks at Changi Airport Terminals. The Red Channel and the examination counters are manned by Immigration & Checkpoint Authority (ICA). ICA officers conduct checks on person, baggage and vehicles entering Singapore, and may refer trade and customs matters to Singapore Customs for follow-up. If you did not make a declaration at the Red Channel or pay the taxes due, you can be prosecuted in court and fined up to $10,000 and imprisonment for up to three years.
