Feel like swimming in the world’s largest infinity pool? What about exploring century old temples? Or even eating famous noodle dishes, like having a laksa in a Hawker Hall? Singapore, a highly developed nation of almost 6 million people, is vibrant and full of life. Job opportunities are plentiful, education institutions are among the best in the world and quality of life is high. There’s a great mix of old and new, and always something exciting going on. New Zealand Movers share 5 reasons to move to Singapore.
1) A great place to raise a family
Any parent would agree that safety is the most important thing when raising a family. Singapore has been voted one of the safest cities in the world, with much lower crime rates than most New Zealand cities. As well as being safe, Singapore is known to be one of the cleanest cities in the world. There are plenty of parks and playgrounds and museums to keep yourself and the children entertained.
2) The food
One of the perks of being a multicultural city is the food. It’s fair to say Singapore has some of the world’s best food with every cuisine on offer. Singapore cuisine draws influence from China, Malaysia and India. It’s home to delicious dishes like fried kway teow, or the simple yet scrumptious chicken and rice. You’ll never get bored exploring Hawker centres – large, traditional Asian food halls.
3) A great base to explore
Singapore is a vibrant city full of life, with always something to do. You also have the rest of South East Asia around you to explore. Living in Singapore you can freely travel to other South East Asian countries with a quick, cheap plane ride or even a train. Four hours in a car and you can be at the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur!
4) Job opportunities
Singapore is considered the business hub of Asia. With this in mind there are lots of attractive job opportunities for professionals – especially in fields like finance, tech and healthcare. Singapore is considered one of the more expensive Asian countries, however, the salaries tend to be lucrative, meaning you’ll earn a lot more than what you would in New Zealand.
5) A sustainable city
With clean air and an emphasis on nature Singapore is considered a pioneer in green urban development. When walking the lively streets you’ll find thousands of buildings covered in lush greenery and lots of open green spaces, with beautiful gardens. They don’t call it “a city in a garden” for no reason.
With lucrative employment opportunities, low crime rates and great quality of life, it’s easy to see why this vibrant city attracts expats from all over the world.
