Singapore Signs

Singapore is a place of rules -- a land of do's and don'ts (but mostly don'ts). These are a few of the signs I encountered on a previous trip to Singapore.

















The strange one above informs you that durian fruit is not permitted on the subway. Durians have a very strong -- and to some offensive -- odor.

This particular sign struck me as especially harsh, even by Singapore standards:



Nevertheless, on your visit to Singapore, you still might catch a glimpse of a skateboarder bolting down an alleyway. After all the signs, such a sight will remind you that there's always hope for the human spirit.

  2. Singapore's not to be missed! It's got plenty of charm -- Arab Street, Little India, a very good Asian history museum. Nice people. And it's a good place to shop.

    The city state -- while no utopia -- is truly one of the modern wonders of the world.
