Singapore, everyone agrees is a city that looks and smells clean! CLEAN is the room fragrance by Singapore memories that is inspired by the fresh aromas of a clean city.
Singapore is a unique and beautiful place that has managed to transform itself into a first-class business center and tourist destination, while it also offers its citizens an excellent quality of life.
Quality of life in highly urbanized areas has to include a number of things like public transport, green spaces, cultural activities, and most importantly, cleanliness. In Singapore keeping the country clean is so important that there are even strict laws with heavy fines for perpetrators in place.
Knowing the laws
There is a complete ban on chewing gum in Singapore and importing it into the country for resale is not allowed. If you do carry gum for personal use, make sure that you do dispose of it properly and not on the ground, otherwise, you will be in for a hefty fine.
Litterbugs also face hefty fines and court appearances so in order to face embarrassing situations its best to not throw anything on the ground.
There are smoking prohibitions in indoor places and in areas where the public congregate and the public is well informed with the relevant signage.
Always cross the street in the designated areas in Singapore. Jaywalking is definitely not acceptable so look for the pedestrian crossing.
For those people with a penchant for urinating in elevators, in Singapore, the detection system of the elevator will lock any offender in until the police arrive.
The laws of Singapore may seem draconian but they do not affect the levels of happiness of the people living here. In a World Happiness Report in 2016, they were found to be the most satisfied nation in the Asia-Pacific region at 22nd place and were one place higher than the people of the United Kingdom.
With more than 90% homeownership, development in Singapore is high but it has also transformed a nation from slums and congestion into a modern metropolis that is clean. Singapore has implemented programs to replace the greenery lost from construction with greenery in the sky through innovative architectural designs. High-rise buildings are also interspersed with parks, waterways and tree planting is an ongoing process. Many parks are connected with bridges and people can stroll, jog, or cycle on these elevated areas.
An affordable and reliable public rail system help to keep traffic off the streets and people have easy access to their work, schools, and entertainment; contributing toward a green environment and a better quality of air.
Committed to being clean and green, Singapore manages to do all this on a tiny island that is crammed with people and it is a joined effort of all involved; the authorities and the determination of its people.
CLEAN is the room fragrance inspired by this determination for a clean and fresh city. It was created by Singapore Memories and it an ideal and unique corporate gift and souvenir for visitors to Singapore.
