"Small Token" Singapore Local Custom Tip by JuraidahJ

Singapore Local Customs: 115 reviews and 186 photos


We practise bringing a small gift token when visiting someone at the comfort of their home.

You don't have to buy anything expensive but a small gift/token will be appreciated a long way.

It can be in form of food, household or anything that you think will be approperiate.

However, please note that if you're visiting Muslim Family - no pork, wine or liquor. Hindus / Buddist - No beef. You may want to check all these before buying.
