Hello there. I am from Singapore. I am glad that most people have good impression about Singapore. Singapore is indeed a clean city but we are definitely not the cleanest in the world. I've only visited Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Macau and Malaysia. Personally, I feel that Singapore is cleaner than all the above mentioned countries except for Japan. I find Japan a very clean country too. Japanese people are very environmentally friendly and conscious. They will take efforts to protect the environment. This is one thing I admire about Japan. I heard that Calgary,Canada is the cleanest city in the world.

YEs..Singapore is one of the cleanest city... They implement their rules as strictly as possible even throwing a small piece of trach along the road, you'll surely be penalized. We can attribute this to the fact that the people are well-disciplined and also singapore is not that big in terms of land area and the population.

i have been to singaore a few months back n i feel that its the cleanest city in the world.but since it is a very small country.regulating any action by the govt is very easy on ther otherhand it is not the case in any other developing countries.children r being taught frm the childhood only how to b clean.imposing fine is good measure bt this can work in singapore only nt in any big country.bcoz if there r rule makers then there r more of rule breakers.

Last time i take the taxi in singapore, the diver ask me, "you know what things is the most in singapore" " visitor,because here is a visit city" "no" the dirver said" lows, that is why so many people say singapore is a fine city, we are stay here, can not do this, can not do that, so becomea fine city"

I had been to Singapore in 2005 and was there for 20 days. Its absolutely the cleanest place on this earth. Whether the government fines or not - I feel the people are also responsible. The whole place is properly organised and everyone knows whats right & whats not. I guess the whole credit goes to the education system. The kids are taught right from a tender age to keep the surroundings and themselves clean and it becomes a life long practice!

Singapore is very small when compared to India.. and more over the per capita income of an individual is many times higher than that of an average person in our country. Moreover the Government of Singapore can afford to spend a huge sums of money in maintaining their City Clean as their population is very less. Whereas in our country/and also countries simliar to that of ours, where the population is in billions and many other economic factors need to be given much more importance than in spending time in maintaining the city clean. Even then our Government is spending lot of efforts in making every metropolitian city clean. Why i elaborate, is that it is very hard to enforce strict rules and regulations in country like ours which are still in the developing Phase. By the way, I also admit that Singaporeans do adhere to the Displinary rules enforced by the Government.

I haven't been to Singapore yet. But I also heard others have the same opinion like yours. I think so. Because even nobody can eat the chewing gums in Singapore. Their stricts are very strict so nobody dares to break it.
