Before embarking on a trip, you have to document yourself, either to find the essential places to visit, to learn about the customs of the country or to discover what you have or do not have to carry. And that’s what we’re going with today’s traveling curiosity article, because illogical as it may seem there are seven things you should not put in your suitcase if you travel to the following countries.

Some of the prohibitions / recommendations are at least peculiar, and it would never go through our heads not to wear clothes of a certain color in the suitcase because it is not well seen or the fact that something like chewing gum can cost us a fine. Better with the lesson learned and not have to carry something useless and problematic.

In Thailand nothing to throw a pitillito

In 2008, the authorities in Thailand put the toughest in the fight against smoking and can not smoke in bars, restaurants or outdoor markets. In Phuket,more than a third of the garbage that was collected was cigarette butts, so that anti-fume crusade makes a lot of sense.

No camouflage clothing in Barbados

The fashions make who more and who less have some garment with camouflage prints, military drawings, khaki or similar. Well you better not put it in your suitcase if you’re going to spend a few quiet days in Barbados. The general public is not authorized to wear such garments since they are reserved only for the military. If you get distracted, you put the Inditex jacket of two seasons ago in the suitcase, so you know that they can confiscate it and you will have to pay a fine.

Yellow is not welcome in Malaysia

In Malaysia, yellow is not welcome at all . Not because they say it brings bad luck, in that they are not superstitious, but it is considered an offense since 2011. That is the color chosen by the opposition, the pro-democracy group Bersih and dress it in all its manifestations. The orders that there are of the government are to identify everyone who goes with a yellow garment on the street, so better leave them at home and take something green that favors a lot. That you know that the ‘Despacito’ is also forbidden. The same thing we’re happy about.

In Singapore there are no chewing gum

In that case it is not that they do not like to eat chewing gum in Singapore, no, it is forbidden the sale, import and manufacture of chewing gum, and we go back to 1987 to find the origin of such thing. It was in that year that they inaugurated the Mass Rapid Train (MRT) and in which they spent a lot of millions, but it is that people were so guarrindonga that stuck the gum used in the automatic doors and began to have problems of operation. They decided to nip in the bud: you do not know how to keep the gum in your mouth, there is not any in the whole country.

If you go to Capri leave the wooden wedges at home

Let’s go now to the idyllic Capri to rest, to eat well and to enjoy the sea and its cobbled streets, but if you have put some wooden clogs or wedges in your suitcase you can only go down to play them or put them in beach establishments, in the rest do not, they make noise. As a noise they make radios that are forbidden in all outdoor places.

Always well covered in Malta

Malta is a place where you will make wild parties and the beach. If you go to the latter keep everything tight because nudity and topless are punished with a heavy fine or may even end the matter in a court proceeding.

Cover your tattoos well in Sri Lanka if they are religious symbols

Traveling to somewhat exotic places always requires some preparation, not only at the level of what you will see but what you can not or should not teach. At a time when we have gone hand in hand with the cult of tattoos, in Sri Lanka you have to be careful with the ones you teach: nothing to show them if they carry religious images or symbols. And of course also very attentive to what you take photos, because you can not pose or photograph statues or Buddhist symbols.
