What is it like to live in Singapore? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Singapore is an intriguing blend of Western modernity and Asian culture. Within roughly 700 square kilometers, you’ll find skyscrapers, Chinese shophouses, Malay mosques, Hindu temples, and endless chains of airconditioned shopping malls. Singapore is safe, clean, and green. However, accommodation is expensive


What is the student lifestyle like in Singapore?

Even though this country is located in Asia, students can meet with the combination of 4 ethnic groups : Chinese, Malays, Indians and Eurosians. People are friendly, hospitable and honest. Students can enjoy different kinds of food ( Local, Indian, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Western, etc). It is also easy to travel countries nearby ( Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Philipine, etc)
