Expats from all over the world live in Singapore, and there are plenty of organisations and clubs to help bring them together. New arrivals in Singapore can expect to live a busy social life, although many activities come at a price in this expensive city.

There are various options available to expats looking for sports, social, cultural and recreational clubs in Singapore. There are also societies organised by nationality and families are well catered for, and for many expats these social groups become a sort of home away from home.
