“Ignorance does not excuse you from the law.” This is true in both your own country and in others. That’s why it’s better off for you to learn laws from all over the world than to get arrested while you’re enjoying your vacation.
So the next time you find yourself in any of these countries, take note of these unusual laws.
1. Public displays of affection can land you in jail in the United Arab Emirates.
2. You can’t chew gum in the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) in Singapore. You will be fined if you get caught.
3. Lighten your pockets by changing your coins into bills in Canada.
4. You can’t feed the pigeons in San Francisco, because these birds can cause unsanitary conditions, and thus feeding them might make them flock around a public space.
5. You can’t walk around outside a beach or pool area in a swimsuit when you’re in Barcelona, Spain as this can get you fined.
6. You need a breathalyzer on you at all times when you’re driving in France.
7. Germany’s Autobahn is a highway where drivers are known for speeding.
8. When in Spain, you’re not allowed to drive using flip flops.
9. Just to be on the safe side, never step on a Thai coin in Thailand.
King Bhumibol Adulyadej is considered the father of Thailand, and his face is in Thai coins. Touching his likeness using what they consider to be the dirtiest part of the body (the feet) is forbidden.
10. You can’t get naked in public in Fiji. Luckily, they have some private resorts where you can sunbathe naked.
This Glass Walkway in China is the Most Terrifying Ever!
I’m quite content down here, thank you very much.
Spanning 100 meters along the side of Tianmen Mountain is China is a glass walkway that even the bravest adventurers may think twice before crossing. Suspended in mind-numbing 4,600 feet in the air with a clear view of what you're walking on (or what you're not walking on, depends on how you see it), The Coiling Dragon is the latest of China's blood-freezing tourist attractions.
This walkway in Zhangjiajie National Forest Park in Hunan province has 99 turns around the side of the sheer cliff part of the mountain. There are safety rails where tourists can cling on to their dear life. ...
Jamban Cafe In Indonesia Serves Food Out Of Toilet Bowls
Jamban Cafe uses upright toilet bowls as seats and serves food out of squat toilets in its bid to educate people on proper human waste disposal.
Jamban Cafe — a restaurant located in Semarang in the island of Java, Indonesia — stands out because of its unusual theme. The food there is placed in squat toilet bowls. Customers are also made to sit on upright toilet bowls.
That said, it's obviously a restaurant that's an acquired taste. In which case, it's also understandable why some people would stay away from it. It's hard to enjoy food that makes you think of what you normally encounter in toilet bowls.
Upright toilet bowls serve as seats.
China Officially Launches World’s First Transit Elevated Bus
Wow! This was just a concept 3 months ago.
Remember China’s concept of an elevated bus that drives over traffic? We blogged about that one back in May and now it has finally become a reality.
