Lifestyle in Singapore
It’s certainly possible to live a luxurious lifestyle in Singapore, especially for those lured in with a cushy expat package, but many foreigners do not. The day-to-day cost of living in the Little Red Dot can get expensive, but the lack of a top-tier salary doesn't mean expats can't enjoy themselves or attain a high quality of life in Singapore.
There's something for everyone (and every budget) when it comes to having a good time, and expats moving to the city-state should have no problem filling their schedules with things to do outside of school or work.
Conspicuous consumption in the form of shopping and eating is a Singapore norm, and firmly features in both local and expat lifestyles – prepare to engage in both popular past times. With plenty of places to partake in either activity, new arrivals won’t fret for lack of choice.
Otherwise, much time is devoted to the pursuit of life outdoors, despite the heat; parks and trails are packed on weekends and afternoons with people riding bikes, jogging and enjoying the weather.
