It’s never an easy choice or task to relocate to a new country and it almost always requires a great amount of careful planning. For many, the relocation can take a while to become accustomed too due to the familiarity of how things were in the home country. There are a lot of comparisons and for some reason the negatives seem to always outweigh the positives. However, if expats can bring themselves to bask in the positive attributes of Singapore, it may be a much easier transition than many people would expect.
Housing options in the country may vary but most are similar to condo style apartments with high-rise features. It’s a vertical lifestyle that will require a bit of getting used to for those who are more accustomed to living in one level homes. For those who live in the stand alone styled homes, there is the lack of a backyard that many would look to enjoy but this is made up for with the green grounds and spacious parks that surround the island. Developmental properties are on the rise in Singapore and condos and flats are growing by the day. The newer developments feature contemporary amenities such as gyms, pools and playgrounds. The growing demand for land and space has an effect on the rental rates in much of Singapore. It costs more to rent closer to the city and single family homes typically cost more. Those who choose to live farther out from the center of town can experience a break in the cost of rent.
Though a very small country, Singapore has a very extensive roadway system and transportation network. Driving, train transport and bus are all easily obtained modes of transportation that are available. The bus line, Mass Rapid Transit is very easy and fairly inexpensive also. The country has plans of building more train lines over the next few years, which makes travel from afar and near very easy. A few of the cities in Singapore are shown below.
- Ah Soo Garden
- Alexandra Estate
- Ama Keng
