Bishan vs. Red Hill

Post by Fabio77 » Fri, 17 Oct 2008 8:20 pm

I have (I hope I do) a choice between a room to rent in Bishan and one in Red Hill, both HDB shared flats.

So I'd like to know what are the differences between the two neighborhoods, and if there's any definitaly unpleasant aspect in any of them.

Redhill is an old estate but it is definitely nearer to town area comparing to Bishan as a newer estate and slightly further away from town area.

To say on unpleasant aspect, it will depends on what are you is your definitation on unpleasant and it will depends on the people that you will be meeting......

Yeah, the people I will meet are the biggest unknown.

Other unpleasant situations may be... well, noisy streets or the like. Crime isn't much of an issue there, I gather.

You will have a higher chance to meet more elderly people in Redhill than in Bishan where the crowd is younger. As for noisy street, it will really depends where u r staying......all places in singapore is the same, it depends where u stay, the location counts.

Bishan is also close to town, unless you own a vehicle, you may want to consider your commute options, it would help if your place is near the MRT.
