Singapore

Cost of Living

A tiny city-state on the tip of the Malaysian peninsula, Singapore dominates global financial and trade league tables and offers a quality of life that borders of the opulent. As one of the world’s most free economies, the business-friendly country has flourished since its full independence in the 1960s.

A brief glance at the attractive, wealthy, multicultural inhabitants of the world’s third richest country (per capita) tells you 90% of the story of this hub of economic and business activity. It correlates with the high rise apartment buildings, the jaw-dropping hotels, and immaculate city infrastructure. If you walk too fast, caught up in the efficient commuter routes or the world-famous shopping crowds, you might miss the other 10% and it is this 10% that draws in the millions of people who call this 700km2 patch of land home.

Loitering around the office buildings and smartly dressed businesspeople of the city like a mischievous teenager, Singapore’s cultural scene brims with a vibrant and wonderful urgency. The cuisine is genuinely the best in the world and the sheer volume of operas, ballets, comedy gigs, and plays will have you desperate for more hours in the day. The fusion of English, Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures begets a beautiful palette of language, dress, and attitude creating a sensational feel unavailable anywhere else in the world.
