Relocating from London - Need Apartment Advice

Post by Vamz » Sat, 01 Aug 2009 1:06 pm

Hello all,

I have just relocated to Singapore from the United States via London (I was living in London last 2 years as an expat) two weeks ago. I'm currently looking for a place to live and so far my estate agents have shown me properties in Districts 9 and 10. I'm a single male in my twenties and wanted your input regarding the suggested areas for single expats in the city. I have been told the Robertson Quay area is quite lively but transport could be a bit tricky (I work at One Raffles). I have seen properties around there and also near Devonshire Road (Metz), the latter seems to be a more practical location with proximity to MRT etc. I don't really care for a huge apartment as it is just me, and I'm pretty social person so I was wondering if I should stay in a smaller apartment near Robertson Quay near all the happening spots or in a peaceful, practical neighborhood around Devonshire road. I know ultimately it is personal choice but I just want to be around people from similar backgrounds and interestst and that's where I need help from the experts. Any input is appreciated as I'm running out of time in my temp accomodation.

Thank you!
PS: Also, hit me up if you guys are up for a drink sometime, I'm craving for friends in the new place!

Welcome to Singapore...

If your work hours are 9am to 6-00 pm you could consider staying a bit away from District 9 and 10 which are going to be a bit expensive.
If you do not want to take local transport there are premium buses which run from many condos (around Singapore) to Central business Districts (including One Raffles Quay). These buses are pretty comfortable and less people travelling on it (therefore a bit expensive ...though cheaper than taxis and no ERP charges!!!).....
You can google premium buses - I am also attaching a link which will be useful.
