Break­ing the law

Selling Travel - - The Final Word -

The world is noth­ing if not di­verse and what may be OK in the UK might not go down quite so well in, say, Kaza­khstan. Travel ad­vice site Smart Le­mur has gath­ered a list of the most bizarre laws trav­ellers may fall foul of.

Tot­ter­ing around an an­cient arche­o­log­i­cal site in Greece in high heels is out­lawed. In Ger­many, make sure your fuel tank is full or you could face a $100 fine for run­ning out of gas on the au­to­bahn. In Iran, men can be banged up for walk­ing the streets with a mul­let, pony­tail or any other long hairstyle, while in Malaysia it's il­le­gal to wear yel­low, thanks to anti-govern­ment protesters. And jog­ging is il­le­gal in Bu­rundi – the govern­ment views it as sub­ver­sive. smartle­mur.com
