You'll be in trouble if you cross the border with these everyday items

All of us know that such items as shells and corals can't be taken as souvenirs from a holiday. However, some countries have restrictions for thing that people use in everyday life and these items can't be taken on a plane. That might cause some problems at Customs.

Thank heavens the Vietnamese ban imports of crocodile skins - a great pity they won't clamp down on the importation of rhino horns, elephant tusks and pangolin scales - the latter is the world's most trafficked animal.

Israel has a strict gambling policy yet Israeli companies provide high-tech operating software and security software to large online slot and gaming conglomerates. BTW, I am pro-Israel.

I know when we went to Cuba years ago we weren't allowed to take the Cuban convertible Peso out of the country but i don't think they checked at the airport it couldn't be used in any other country anyway Bonnie

Fifty year old books are not uncommon, and except for certain desirable titles, not especially valuable. I see them all the time. Many best-sellers were published in million quantities. Probably a law to prevent theft of medieval books from university libraries that got out of hand.

Hugo Zimmermann, That's not true. Durian is a very popular fruit. I bought and ate many of them there. They are prohibit in taxis, buses and hotel rooms.

gcomptech, i guess it's one of those "don't do as I do, do as I say" situations. When I lived in remote PNG years ago, we could not bring playing cards into the country.

Don’t try taking sand from the beaches in Sardegna Italy, it’s forbidden & will incur a big fine if you are caught! BTW, every year plenty of tourists are caught, it’s a big deal here.

Ian Swindale, The don't ban the import of crocodile skins...they ban the export of them, unless bought from certain shops. It's about money, not animal welfare. So not nice guys at all.
