I'm moving to Singapore in a couple of months and I need advice regarding what area would be best to rent a place. Kindly help. Thank you.

- budget: S$ 1500-2000
- workplace: Outram, preferably within 2 stops away from Outram Park MRT station
- size and/or type of ‪property‬: studio (partially furnished will do too), preferably with gym and pool facilities
- will you have a car here? No
- proximity to transport required. MRT-subway/buses/the airport/Malay border post: MRT/bus within 5 mins walking distance
- will you have any accompanying children needing to attend school? No
- will your employer being funding any fees; or will you, 'out of pocket'? Yes

Nice to have:
- will you need to be able to say walk to the local shops, a library, your doctor, a market, and so on? I may not cook too often, so around a place to get sub-S$10 lunch/dinner.
- access to any specific sport, social, and recreation facilities? Not necessarily
- are you considering bringing any pets. If so what kind, and will they require outdoor access and/or exercise? No
- are you considering bringing any parents/in-laws etc? Do they have specific needs (for example difficulty climbing stairs?) no

Your current home and commute:
- are you already a city dweller? i.e. Are you used to city-centre hustle and bustle, or would you hope for a bit more peace and quiet? Both are fine
