Activities

Singapore offers a number of exciting cultural and tourist destinations for expats living abroad. The Marina Bay Sands resort poses an image that most of us are familiar with. The Skypark also provides an outstanding vantage point for taking in the rest of Singapore. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, The Gardens by the Bay offers patrons a beautifully crafted green space.

Cleanliness

Despite the size of the city, you may notice how clean it is. It is common to see waste bins on every street corner and littering carries a hefty fine if you’re caught. Singaporeans feel a strong sense of etiquette when it comes to littering and take pride in being a clean city.

Singapore is strict when it comes to local laws and as an expat, you should be mindful of such laws. You should be mindful that a number of activities are not lawful including smoking in public and selling chewing gum.
