‘Too expensive’ Expats reveal the reality of life in ‘exclusive’ Singapore

Expats can enjoy world class Indian, Chinese, Malaysian and global cuisine at one of the local street markets or food courts.

One expat said: “Read up on all the public rules and fines that come with it, for example ‘no chewing gum’, ‘no spitting’ etc.”

On the spot fines are fairly common in Singapore and expats will need to learn and respect local laws.

Being drunk and disorderly in public could result in a S$5,000 (£2,500) fine or even up to 15 years imprisonment.

Expats could also be fined for littering, chewing gum, or drinking and smoking in some public areas.
