Singapore has a widely multi-ethnic society, with a boiling pot of inhabitants from a variety of diverse backgrounds. This is one of the many reasons why Singapore is so appealing. Although when finding a new location for your home in Singapore there is a chance you want to be in an area where there are other expats and international schools.
InterNations, expatriate experts, have written a brief overview of residential destinations which are popular among foreigners.
The article states that expats can be found on most parts of the island, so when it comes to finding somewhere suitable there is a lot of choice. Living on the centre of the island can be immensely attractive to expats. This is due to the good transport links as well as proximity to the Central Business District and to most of the city’s international schools.
The suburbs are also a great option for expats who favour a less hectic lifestyle. You are still connected to the city center with great transport links as well as expressways. A great example give is Katong village on the east coast, as it is conveniently located near Changi International Airport.
The Woodlands is a suburban town to the north of Singapore, with very good access to the city and to Malaysia. Living in Singapore’s Woodlands makes for a significantly calmer lifestyle. It is host to modern town planning but also large areas of public parkland and communal gardens.
A spokesperson from Interdean comments: ‘Making sure you have found your perfect destination to relocate to in Singapore is imperative. It is vital that you have taken the time to carefully research all the different residential areas. There clearly is a lot of great choice in Singapore to suit a wide variety of people. By prioritising realistically what you want from a destination then you can begin to make a comprehensive decision on where to make your new home.’
