Living on Hillview Avenue

Post by fairdos » Thu, 06 Aug 2009 6:36 pm


I'm going to be moving to Singapore in a few weeks with work. My work has organised my accommodation and I'll be living in a block on Hillview Ave. That's about 11kms away from work (near Buona Vista MRT).

I've been on gothere and I can't find any way of getting to work that takes less than an hour - this worries me incredibly because I'm not used to commuting for more than 20mins and unfortunately I can't change my accommodation for at least the first year.

Is it possible to walk to the Bukit Gombak MRT station from Hillview Ave? If there is a way through Bukit Batok town park then this could solve my nightmare journey. Also, and here is the naivety coming out, how hilly is it up there? I come from the flattest part of England so I'm really not used to hiking!

Plus, any tips on living in this area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
