Singapore, without a doubt, is a great place to be for everyone. Getting a visa is not a problem, the weather is great all round the year, the schools are also world-class. If there is anything that is less than great, then that is the real estate market.
Looking for a condo in midst of tropical greenery? Bukit Timah is one area that you would love. Here you will find many top-class condos with a jungle view. Tucked in lush greenery, this place has recently become an ideal destination for families as there are many good international schools here.
While Bukit Timah is in the lap of nature, it is well connected to other parts through MRT. With that said, if you want to have a good time, you don’t necessarily have to go anywhere else because there are many world-class cafes, restaurants and bars. What’s more, there’s even a farmer’s market close by.
Downtown and the CBD
Most people either love or hate living in CBD. The experience is that powerful; there’s no midway. You will love it here if you want to be where action is and don’t mind paying a higher price for its rent for being close to the best restaurants and nightlife that Singapore has to offer. The fantastic views of the skyline are an added advantage. Downtown is a better location for those who want to experience the real Singaporean culture from close.
East Coast in the recent years has emerged as one of the favourite destinations among expats. If you love living close to a sandy beach or enjoy water sports, you will fall in love with this place. There are also historical shops around Joo Chiat where you can enjoy authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
As far as shopping centres, bars, cafes, and restaurants are concerned, East Coast is just as good as any other place. There are enough of these to keep you busy. Many top International schools are relocating close-by so finding a school for your children will not prove to be a hassle. In coming years, an MRT line will open, but connectivity at present, thanks to taxis and buses, is not bad either.
Newton & Novena
Another great option for expats is Newton & Novena. It is well connected with other areas, has no shortage of schools with some top schools located nearby, features Singapore’s top sports mall Velocity@Novena where you will have an enjoyable time, and has the famous Newton Circus hawker centre where you can enjoy local cuisine to your heart’s content. If you love walking in the midst of nature, there’s the stunningly beautiful MacRitchie Nature Reserve.
With Newton & Novena, we conclude our list of top places for finding a condominium in Singapore. There are many other areas which are nearly as good as these, and you can consider including them in your research also.
