Singapore has made a name for itself, to be the best places and number one choice for expats to live in, play in and work in.

Expat living vs local living – income level
According to the survey, there’s more than a quarter of the Singapore’s expat community earn in excess of S$284,000 and with the average pay calculated around S$368,000 which we think it’s safe to say they are making quite a fair bit of money. Compared to the locals, average Singaporeans make S$4,600 on a monthly basis, optimistic amount and Singapore is one of the highest income equality among the developed countries. It means that many earn much and much lower than the average, the vast difference in wages would allow expats to enjoy greater standard of living in Singapore where many locals cannot enjoy.

With higher income, you have access to quality healthcare and best schools. This makes Singapore is one of the most desirable place to live in where it is already known that Singapore has the best quality health care and educational institutions.

Housing is no longer cheap as it used to be ever since the influx of foreign talent to Singapore. There are two types of housing category in Singapore – public housing HDB flat and private condominiums or bungalows. Obviously, expat cannot buy the HDB flat (only for Singaporean), they are left with private property.
