Accommodation in Singapore
Looking for accommodation in Singapore for your relocation purposes? It is easier to get long term rental apartment for 1 to 2 years lease in Singapore than it is for short term rental. Most owners would not consider 6 months rental unless the apartments is very old or at a not so good location. As such, your only solution will be to look at serviced Apartments which offer short term rental. These, however, comes with a premium tag for your housing. Serviced apartments at town areas usually can set you back at $6 500 for a studio.
However, you can opt for serviced apartments in the East near the MRT stations where the rental can be 40% less than those offered at town areas. If distance to y0ur office is a factor, do not worry, as long as you lived near the MRT, it will take minutes for you to reach the town areas where you work.
Another plus point of staying away from the town centre and along the green MRT line, are the convenience of riding on the train to anywhere in Singapore. It is without a shadow of doubt offer cheaper food, services, groceries and shopping in these areas. These can be as much as about 20-30% cheaper. In the heartland, there are many reasonably priced high-end shops and restaurants at Mall near Paya Lebar and Bedok MRT stations with huge savings at your convenience. You can get really cheap finds at the shops in the Joo Chiat area and City Plaza, where blogshops get their wholesale supply from. The stretch of Geylang Road between Paya Lebar and Kallang MRT stations is arguably the most vibrant part of Singapore.
The Malays and the Peranakans, the majority of them can be found around these areas, with their bright ethnic clothings, furniture and their festivities.
