Crowded, hot and humid. Very safe place to be in and a great place if you like to do shopping


What is the student lifestyle like in Singapore?

Could be a culture shock where everyone seems to focus alot on studying. Grades are highly regarded in Singapore

How much does it cost to live in Singapore?

Transport probably 6 SGD a day for bus and mrt. Food can be quite cheap around 3-4 SGD for good and another 1-2 SGD for drinks in our hawker centers

Not sure about accommodation but i have been told its around 500-600 for a room rental in our HDB

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Singapore? Is there any advice you can give?

Try the school accommodation. Could try Pandabed or AirBNB but HDBs are not legally allowed to rent out places through them.

Alternatively, check propertyguru and such. Drop me a message and i can also give u some help

A lot of variety, typical ones you have wanton noodles and chicken rice. Alot of international student love the food here in Singapore
