Some singaporean traditions, festivals, celebrations

Singapore celebrates public holidays that reflect racial diversity including Chinese New Year (also known as Lunar New Year) and Buddhist Vesak Day (buddhists often organize charity events or mass blood donations on this day; these acts of generosity are also referred to as Dana), Hari Raya Puasa (Muslim Eid ul-Fitr), and Deepavali (Hindu Diwali or the Festival of Lights is the most important festival in the Hindu calendar and the most significant festival for the Indian community). Singapore Heritage Fest - this is an annual event held in the month of July. This festival is an initiative to get to know more about the various cultures in Singapore and their traditions, food, costumes, music, art etc. through a series of exhibitions, heritage tours, culinary events and cultural performances. Dragon Boat Festival - the highlight of this festival are the dragon boat races which take place annually every June and features both local and international rowers. This is also a great time to enjoy traditional rice dumplings and the festival is also known as The Dumpling Festival.
Singapore is a great country that does not only offer amazing careers and business opportunities but also unique culture of discipline, trust and hospitality. Here the family is the centre of the social structure and it is where unity, loyalty and respect begin. Here good governance and stable rules and regulations apply equally to everyone in the country. Singapore now has the world’s most powerful passport. It allows Singaporeans to travel visa-free to 159 countries.
There are four Singapore official languages: Chinese Mandarin, Malay, Tamil, and English. SEA Aquarium Singapore is the second largest aquarium in the world. The orchid is another symbol of Singapore. You can find many of them in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Several local customs and traditions in Singapore that everyone should know
  • Take off your shoes before entering the house.
  • Calling older people “aunty” and “uncle” is a sign of respect for our elders.
  • Singapore is a country that has fully embraced technology. At a quick glance, today’s Singapore may look like an ultra-modern and liberal city. But inside, it is still an extremely conservative and religious society.
  • Join the back of the queue if you see a really long queue.
  • Go ahead, but get a permit first. Never do anything in public places without official police permits, including busking, begging or soliciting other people.
  • At restaurants and cafes, your bill will include 7% Goods and Services Tax and 10% Service Charge.
  • The right side of an escalator is for people walking up the steps. The left is for people content to stand and wait.
  • Muslims consider dogs to be unclean, so no matter how cute your dog is, don’t bring it near them and keep your dog on a leash.
  • Recommended only smoking in designated smoking areas, just to be safe. Consuming alcohol is still often viewed as a sin by Singaporeans.
  • We recommend extra caution when walking on the grass during the Hungry Ghost Festival.
A rule of thumb is that each month that ends in “-ber” signifies the rainy season. Chewing gum is banned in Singapore, because they don’t want it littering the city. Come to Singapore, lah. No need to visit Malaysia. Lah/Leh/Mah - are mostly used to emphasize the sentence, but have no actual meaning. Although Singapore’s cost of living is one of the highest in the world, food is a cheap commodity here. Singapore has established itself as a major destination for serious shoppers. The Great Singapore Sale - îne of the most popular and much awaited annual events, held every June.
