Tips For Travelling To Singapore

Are you planning on visiting Singapore in the near future? If you are planning to make a visit to this city-state, you’ll want to take a look at these tips. All of these suggestions will help you to have a great time while you’re in Singapore.

Watch Out For Hazy Conditions

If you visit Singapore during certain times of the year, you may have to deal with the haze. Near the start of fall, certain parts of Singapore see a lot of pollution. It is usually recommended that people stay indoors during this time.

Usually, the haze only lasts for a few days, which means it is fairly easy to avoid it. Look at the weather conditions in the past few years. Try to avoid heading to Singapore during a time when the haze could be a problem. If Singapore is haze-free during your visit, you’ll be able to do a lot of sightseeing.

Don’t Bring Any Drugs Into Singapore

Singapore has extremely strict rules about drug possession. Because of this, you need to avoid bringing any drugs into their country. Even if a drug is legal in your area, there is a good chance that it is not legal in Singapore.

You should also take precautions when it comes to prescription drugs. You will want to bring a copy of your prescription with you. That way, if you are questioned about your prescription, you will be able to confirm that the drugs were actually prescribed by a doctor.

Learn More About Singapore’s Laws

Singapore has very strict laws regarding minor offenses. Littering or jaywalking could land you in hot water. It’s a smart idea to read up on some of these laws and regulations before you enter the country. That way, you can make sure you stay on the right side of the law.

In Singapore, ignorance of the law isn’t considered to be an excuse. If you violate one of Singapore’s laws, you could wind up having to pay a hefty fine. Thankfully, Singapore’s laws are easy to follow. As long as you know what these laws are, you can avoid making any big mistakes.

Talk To People That Have Visited Singapore In The Past

You can learn a lot from people that have been to Singapore before. People that have toured this region will be able to recommend restaurants, shopping destinations, and Singapore’s top attractions.

If you don’t know anyone that has visited Singapore, you should try to connect with online communities or contact Singapore travel agency. You’ll be able to have conversations with people that have spent a lot of time in Singapore. Ask these people some questions and see what they are willing to tell you.

Singapore is a beautiful place to visit. If you’re going to be spending time in Singapore, you should make sure that you’re prepared. If you’re willing to test out these travel tips, you should be able to avoid a lot of potential setbacks. Your visit to Singapore should go very smoothly.

History of WBGF

The Wakarusa Bluegrass Festival was founded by Ed Tom and the late Mel Schrock in 2005, with the first festival held behind the Come-n-Dine restaurant (now the Corner Café). It was moved in 2006 across the street to a larger venue with a converted semi-trailer as a stage. This continues to be the only outdoor annual bluegrass festival in Elkhart County. Under the leadership of a small Board of Directors and dedicated volunteers, WBGF was granted 501-c-3 (not-for-profit) status in 2009, and has partnered with the Family Christian Development Center in Nappanee, IN and has donated to other area charities.

During the festival’s first few years, the venue was a Saturday stage show, and eventually expanded to include a Sunday morning gospel bluegrass service, then a Friday night open-bluegrass jam, and in following years, educational events were added to the Friday afternoon schedule.

The festival began honoring an area person or group who have been instrumental in Michiana bluegrass music. Ethan Shelton, age 109, was the first Honorary Chairman in 2012. He attends local jams and festivals, and always has his uekele handy. The 2013 festival honored the Michiana Hymn-tymers, an area group dedicated to bluegrass gospel music for over 40 years.

Past festivals have featured Larry Sparks, Audie Blaylock and Redline, the Tommy Webb Band, Special Concensus, Michael Cleveland, Virginia Crossties, Volume Five, Lilly Mountaineers, Rock Island Plow Company, Meyer Bluegrass, and other nationally-known and local bluegrass bands. We even had a world-class yodeler at the 2013 festival.

WBGF has received grants from the Indiana Arts Commission (The Community Foundation of St. Joseph County) and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federally-funded program. Sponsor and individual donations provide additional funding.

Our mission is to promote and preserve traditional American bluegrass music, and to provide the opportunity for attendees to enjoy affordable entertainment .
