You might have heard from your friends, or as you searched the internet, that Singapore is widely known to be having only “First World Problems.” Indeed, all that is true. To top it all, Singapore is among the very few nations with the most reliable and efficient transport systems, and though it may be a little expensive to live in, in the end, you are spoiled so much by the benefits you only can enjoy living in this nation.
To mention but a few:
Singapore has one of the fairest climates in the world
Every time is summer time here. You will not need to carry heavy coats and boots when coming to Singapore—it is hot and humid, but it rains all year long. So, you will always need to carry your brolly with you no matter how bright a day may seem.
Singapore is positioned as a small island country with excellent harbors and a favorable climate has turned Singapore into one of the most prominent trading centers in the world and the platform on which most global firms want to grow their businesses.
Take a tour around Singapore’s top sites
The three top attraction sites include Sentosa, the Universal Studios amusement park, and the Singapore Flyer—a 165m-tall public observation wheel. You can also choose to have a night out at the Night Safari to study the life of nocturnal animals.
Security in Singapore is assured
The government’s high level of control of social and public amenities directly translates to the easy-going lifestyle of Singaporeans. You will also hardly hear of police patrols in Singapore, but with the decent network of surveillance cameras, security is high. The crime rate is also at a minimal low, banking on strict court rulings and the fear to face extremely harsh punishments.
The education system is so on point
Wait, who in this age loves going to school? Well, Singaporean kids do, and they score high grades. Additionally, you will have several options to choose from irrespective of whether you want to enroll your children in private international schools or a local public school. Your kids will also have the opportunity of learning a foreign language of their choice.
There are many housing options, too
If you love living “vertically” then Singapore will make a unique destination area, with much of the housing here coming in the form of high-rise apartments. However, if you are among the few that don’t like taking lifts to their apartments, the experience of living in Singapore’s modern gated communities is one you never want to miss—enjoying high-class function rooms, gyms, swimming pools and playgrounds.
You will never feel alone visiting or residing in Singapore as it may be the case with other nations. Singapore is home to many people with different social and cultural backgrounds such that you can even make a friend while shopping or taking your evening walk. Most of the people living here, especially those of an older generation, are also easy to engage in a conversation.
…and when anyone greets you, “Have you eaten?” Smile back with a nod and say, you have just had Hainanese chicken rice.
