Got to love those places that are convenient to go somewhere elseDensely populated but still lots of wild outdoor space like Macritchie, Bukit Timah, and Wetlands. Also the beaches, particularly at East Coast and Sentosa.
In 5 years living there I was never bored once.
I lived in a house with a garden.
One pub is nonsense, the pub scene is brilliant at Club Street, Holland Village, Chijmes etc. Even quirky places like Golden Mile are a good night out.
It's tropical weather yes, that comes with living at the equator but I loved never scraping frost.
A deep loathing of other countries in the region? Where have I also heard that nearer to home??
Things to love:
The weather (if you are a hot weather person which I am).
Safe, women and kids can walk the streets night and day without fear.
Changi Airport is so easy to use it is great for grabbing weekends in places like Bali, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Cambodia, Langkawi etc
Food lovers paradise
Great education for kids
Beautiful golf courses
Easy to drive over to Malaysia and discover the East Coast Islands
Golf ? in that heat ?
Sentosa - twinned with Blackpool pleasure beach complete with monorail. A one time visit closes at 6pm
Beaches - burn your feet stepping on the sand
Yes its safe - too safe - although I did manage to get mugged on Orchard road
Food Yes if you like chicken feet and rice.
Anyway - you enjoy yourself
