Keep your pants on in Greece
The Greeks and indecent behaviour don’t mix. If you’re the type of person who gets a laugh out of mooning other folks, you might want to keep your pants up and your belt buckled. Dropping your drawers is a chargeable offence in Greece that can bring with it a steep fine or prison time.
Bathing suits are for the beach only in Barcelona
Don’t wander away from the Barcelona seafront dressed in just your bikini or swim trunks. In this Spanish city, it’s against the law to wear swimming attire on public streets. Cover up or change out of your bathing suit if you plan to leave the beach or promenade – failing to do so will result in a financial dent in your wallet.
Butt out and chew carefully in Singapore
Smoking laws are severe in Singapore. Lighting up in public – on the street or in a park – will earn a stiff fine. Gum chewers aren’t exempt from tough regulations either. It’s illegal to chomp gum while riding on Singapore’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system, and like smoking, this offence is punishable with a fine.
