Why choose Singapore?

Clean and Tidy Environment

Singapore is abundant of tropical rain forest natural resources, and the government has a comprehensive community greening policy which not only has made Singapore erected with modern buildings, but also made the entire city accompanied by green grass. Many plants and flowers spread throughout the island and it is literally a "Garden City," providing Singaporeans with a comfortable life. Furthermore, the air quality is excellent. Singapore strictly controls the polluting industries and strongly encourages the development of green industries with low air pollution.

Perfect Housing Policy

80% of the permanent residents of Singapore are living in subsidized housing built by the government. These are Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats. The layouts of HDB flats range from one-bedroom to five-bedroom, as well as apartment-style, catering for families of different sizes. These government subsidized HDB flats are located in the residential areas of the entire island. Each HDB flat community has well-developed facilities such as supermarkets, playgrounds, schools, libraries, shopping centres, clinics and so on. There are public transport services in the housing estates for the convenience of residents.

The metro has a world-class advanced technology management system that brings extraordinarily comfortable and express transportation to residents and tourists throughout the island.
