Townscape of Singapore

All I know about Singapore is Merlion, the mythical creature with the head of a lion and the body of a fish, used as a mascot of Singapore. So I tried to research about this country. Then, I realized it seems that this country has many peculiar laws.

One of the peculiar laws is that it prohibits chewing gum. This law took effect in 1992 and prohibits manufacture, sale, import, and even bringing in by tourists. The reason why this law is operated is to keep this country clean.

Now, chewing gum has resumed sales, but is allowed only for medical use. I haven’t been to Singapore, but I think it may be such a clean country.
