Where to live in singapore?

Post by mizza » Thu, 24 Jan 2008 5:27 pm

My husband and I move to Singapore in March, (our first baby is due in May) and we need ideas on where to live. Our main criteria are: less than 10 mins walk to MRT, (even closer if poss) near some park/green space, shops and food outlets, budget about $5000 per month for a 3 bedroom condo. We dont really need to be near the party areas, getting a bit old for all of that! Any suggestions? Hubbie will be working at One Raffles Quay. As for me, I will be pushing a pram for a while!

We live in north Toa Payoh area, Braddell View. We are very close to the MacRitchie Reservoir which has lovely parklands as well as a boardwalk surrounded in natural bush. There are alot of walking/jogging tracks, kyacking. It is about 10 minutes walk to the MRT but we are surrounded by buses going in all directions too. There are local shops, eateries, wet market and International Schools are close too. Braddell MRT is on the central line so does not take long to get into town. There are a few condos around Thompson.

thanks for the reply. Sounds like an area with lots to offer! Are there many expats in the area? I love the whole asia culture thing, but also am conscious of the fact that I will know no one and want to meet some likeminded people/other expats.

Just arrived to Braddell View this month after 10 months in Bedok. Still exploring what the area can offer me. If anyone is interested in some coffee around, just let me know!

Oh, and would be wonderful to meet any table tennis partner there, or even any REALLY WEAK tennis player to start to play together!

I am local , just to share some pointers. You dont have to stay in a condo nowadays, HDB flats are just as comfy and convenient. Usually these flats are nearer to the train station! And what's good is that a typical 4 room flat for rental wont cost you $5000 per month! Areas like Toa Payoh, Bishan, Ang Mo Kio, you could also consider places like Hougang.

cks, it's pretty obvious you are local. you registered tonight, and immediately started soliciting in the threads in the business forum. Which were deleted as we do not allow any types of solicitation in the forum.

It may be a good idea, if you have just found this site, to have a read of a number of the currently running threads in these different forums on this site to see what information is already there. That way you will not sound like a parrot just repeating what has been said over and over.

Anyway, welcome to the forum, and I would suggest reading a lot of the stickies at the top of the various forums so you don't run afoul of our policies again.
