Singapore is commonly known as the "fine city". Meaning it is a fine place to live, and they fine you for just about everything. No joke. The country is beautiful, spotlessly clean, and chock full of fine dining, shopping and entertainment. It also boasts a laundry list of offenses that carry hefty fines.
Jaywalking, spitting, chewing gum, littering, drinking/eating on public transport, smoking, and forgetting to flush a toilet - Just to name a few.
Just about the only thing they DON'T fine you for is drug trafficking.
Nope. For that they kill you.
Thank god we didn't overstay our visa. The penalty for that is caning. For real.
