east coast has a lot of condos with seaview. But as these condos are close to the coast / beach (strange right? :wink: ), they tend to be not right next to the mrt. But on a 10 - 15 minutes bus drive, you could choose from Eunos, Kembangan, Bedok mrt stations to get to all the condos.

As Eric has mentioned, no MRT stations along the east coast but it does have a multitude of bus routes which will get you to most areas (CBD, Orchard Road etc) pretty quickly.

If you go west, there might be more choice nearer to Jurong/ Boon Lay. And it's cheaper - too FAR away (hahahaha) like anything is far away in Singapore.

Let's take a poll..

I say East.

Reason : Nice views. Nice bikinis at the beach. Nice sea air (though quite corrosive). Nice environment. Nice everything!

Cons : Not so near MRT. Unless you get a place near the Tanah Merah MRT. A few condominiums around the area. Can still get the sea view from a high floor. (Try Bedok Court, Tanamera)

Hmm, actually no MRT's have a nice seaview as far as I know . . . :?


(Ok, I'd go with East as well, for two reasons: 1) I live in the West and judging by your last post on why nothing is written in Chinese here in Singapore you are better off on the other side of the island and 2) umm, yes, better seaviews. You see, an island only has one location with seaviews.)

:) MRT is the subway/train system in Singapore :) (Subway station with a view :lol: )


That's a difficult question to answer as there are quite a few foreign/international schools here - German, French, US, Brit . . . Find which school to go to then start looking from there.
Luckily expats are fairly spread out here - there are a few concentrated spots, like Holland Village, but generally you'll find us all over the place - which is nice as contact to Singaporeans is not that difficult.

Find a school first, then search the surrounding areas.

I don't fully agree with Vaucluse. Schools here (or at least most of them) offer good bus services.

So you don't have to be that close to the school.

If you are offered that opportunity, get a serviced appartment, move around and find your best spot.

Too true, CD. Having my kids in local schools, as opposed to International Schools, the heady heights of private transport are closed to me :)

Good suggestions all 'round by Carpe Diem - which loosely translated means that he eats fish daily - my 4 years of Latin at school has paid dividends!!!
Yes, best way to go is to stay here first, either Serviced Apartments (pricey, though. No?) or short term rental places.

Don't mention it. I am surprising myself when I see how good the suggestions I am posting are.

Soon I am going to wonder if I am still able to write silly posts.

I seem to notice a milder approach by the both of us recently -is it the weather?

No worries on your fears, silly posts will always be the hallmark of CD.
(How did you get ca. 50 more posts all of the sudden?)
