Things You Should Know About Singapore

Things You Should Know About SingaporeSingapore is a great place to shop especially this Great Singapore Sale. The Great Singapore Sale happens every year from the last week of May to the last week of July. Aside from the discounted price, you can also enjoy many freebies from many establishments.

If you are planning to here in Singapore, here are some of the things that you should be aware of:

1. Singapore is a right hand driving country, so be aware of the road especially when crossing.

2. When you use the escalator, always move on the left to give way to those who are rushing. It is common courtesy here in Singapore.

3. At food courts or what is called "hawkers" by Singaporeans, don't be offended if the service crew clears your plate even the people you are with are still eating. It's just a habit here. I got offended on my first time here but I eventually got used to it.

4. Singapore is a multi-racial country, don't be surprised to see more than 7 nationalities.

5. When speaking to a local, it is advisable to speak slowly and never use advanced english words. Be patient to understand them.

6. Orchard, Bugis, Vivo City, Mustafa and Chinatown are the shopping destinations. Spend wisely and pasalubong to my Kababayan if you're going here.

Your number 5 tips reminds me of Korea. You have to really talk slow and even repeat the words many times so they could understand you.

i think singapore is somewhat similar to USA :) they have entertainments and theme parks similar here in the United States and the shopping centers too. I have a friend who resides in Singapore and she always post pictures of here in many places over there

I started "liking" Singapore only recently. We've been in the country many times in the past but my daughter and I's recent trip last year made me have a change of heart about the country.

I like how it's very clean and organized. I like the orderly way the people go about their daily lives and I am happy that I have friends there I can visit any time.
