I have been living in shared apartment for 8 years, I think I know what I can expect from it!

Did OP said that he's young single and male? I did not know that... :P
Yeah, I guess he didn't say that. I just kind of assumed it based on the criteria the OP posted, and the numerous similar profiles where the people are young single males. Either way, I stand by Bedok not being a good choice.

No, Bedok is lovely, but, there are much better places than Bedok when you have no family! I would recommend Toa Payoh if you want good cheap local food, Tiong Bahru is great also, depends what the OP is looking for on his doorstep, it's also near to the city and travel anywhere from their transport hub.

Whatever it is, don't be drawn by the CBD, the area is a little dead at the weekend. Taxis are cheap from outlying areas to get you to and fro should you decide to use them rather than "slumming it" on the MRT or bus system.

This guy has done a few books in Singapore when he lived her on his own a few years back maybe try and grab one of his books to have a read, he lived in a HDB in Toa Payoh and talks about the area in the book as well as many others. Clicky

I used to live in Bedok. It's a bit too quiet for singletons. And the only efficient way to go anywhere without a car is via the MRT. Have a family? It's good. But if you're out to see the city, not so much.

Hi Mickael, I don't know if you are still looking for some tips, but I can tell you that Tiong Bahru is really becoming a happening place, lots a new nice bars and restaurants. Many guys I know are moving there and for 1,500 sgd, you'll find something quite nice (maybe a proper master bedroom). Besides it's 15 min max to city hall.

If you have a motorcycle driving licence, get it converted and you'll really appreciate it. Otherwise bycicle is ok but don't expect cars to be carefull and friendly. They have the right of way in many ways :)
