Singapore and Its Laws

Singapore prides itself in being one of the safest countries in the world and one of the cleanest and greenest city as well. Singapore enjoys a great tropical climate of an average 27 Degrees Celsius all year round. And there is so much to do. The trendy inexpensive shops and cafes of China town, Boat Quay and Holland Village are a short distance from the College. The famous Orchard Road shopping hub is just minutes from taking the Mass Rapid Train. Or maybe you would like to take a bus ride to Newton Circus, where you can enjoy the most delicious local food available in the country.

 

Singapore life spills onto the streets and into the parks with street markets and carnivals, open- air restaurants and cafes and plays all under the stars. It is a sophisticated city too, offering world-class opera, theatre, and classical concerts and entertaining night lives. And if you want a change to something more peaceful and natural it does not take long to escape the cosmopolitan life. Just half and hour by car or bus is the Singapore Zoological Gardens, with magnificent greeneries and wildlife at your doorstep. The island Sentosa also serves as a relaxing retreat where you can enjoy the beach, theme park, or visit historical sites of the country. Live it up, Singapore.

 

Relevant Singapore laws especially those relating to ICA and Ministry of Manpower need to be noted and observed. This include, but are not limited to, immigration requirements, laws on driving, drugs and alcohol abuse, employment, smoking, traffic and littering.

IMPORTANT POINT: Ignorance Of The Law Is No Excuse To Break The Law, The Responsibility Lies On Everyone To Know The Law.
