1. Chewing gum.

Be aware that the streets in Singapore are surprisingly clean, and there are many laws regarding the cleanliness of the city. They have huge fines for littering, spitting, and smoking in public. And the sale of chewing gum in the country is completely banned - you can get a fine for trying to import it. Only certain chewing gums can be found in pharmacies that are approved for medical purposes.

2. Wearing inappropriate clothing.

In many Muslim countries, you must dress modestly to avoid drawing unwanted attention in public, especially if you are a girl. Clothing should cover arms and legs, and underwear should not be visible. Iran and Saudi Arabia are demanding that women cover their arms and legs completely and wear a headscarf. In Iran, if you do not follow the dress code, you may be fined. But in Saudi Arabia, you can end up in jail.

4. Stealing cacti.

Certain native plants in Arizona in the United States are protected under state law. If you destroy them, it is considered theft and maybe a reason to put you in jail for several years. It takes tens of years for a cactus to grow, so these measures are necessary to protect the local flora from destruction.

5. Live together until marriage.

Group races have been banned in the East African country of Burundi on the basis of an argument that people use the activity as a pretext for organizing "uprisings" and as a cover for planning subversive activities. You can run alone, but 2 people make up a group. Some people go to jail for this.
