New Couple Moving to Singapore

Post by trip2020 » Tue, 01 Dec 2009 12:35 pm

Hi Everyone,

My new wife and I are set to move to Singapore in January and was hoping for some help. We are both in our mid 20's and very interested to get the most out of our experience here. Neither of us has really lived in a foreign country before so we could use some advice. We are mostly concerned about living. We are looking for a 2 bedroom in a nice, fun area, near bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. I will be working at Marina Bay, so easy public access is important since we won't have a car.

Honestly, we have no idea what to expect. Our budget is between S$2000 - S$3300, but that's mainly because not sure what gets what. Can someone point me in the right direction? District or neighborhoods. Also, can we find something for that budget in a young professional area?

Thanks!

I'm sorry to say, but with this budget it will be difficult for you to find nice housing in Singapore, especially near MRT and shops. I think you can get a nice apartment on the East Coast, but this will be a little further away from town, nice shops and restaurants. Living expenses are really high in Singapore and now the market is starting to pick up again. Nevertheless, you might not live in a flashy area, but will live well.

Good luck!

with that budget, still possible la. btw, singapore is very small, so there's no one area for young professional, the old and cripple, the white, the coloured, the coolie, etc.

even if you are away from shops and restaurant, they are only a short distance away.
