Off to new horizons! How to organize Singapore for you:

General Information

A Place to Live

Making Money and having the right Visa

Maybe you have a great idea and want to start a business. Have a look at EnterpriseOne of the Singapore Government.

Work hard! You may just want to get a job on jobsDB since Singapore is expensive and you better have an employment pass or other visa. Ministry of Manpower is the place to  make sure you get the right one.

Make Friends

Let’s connect with people via Internations,  Xing, Facebook’s several Singapore expat groups or on one of the endless Expat sites like Expat SingaporeSingapore ExpatsExpat Living. Internations and Xing among others have monthly meetings or parties around town which are good to meet people and see different places.

Party, Drink and Eat

Talking about it: party hard! And find out where on Time Out, City Nomads or IS Magazine. The latter is available for free and in print in some selected shops, bars and restaurants.

This brings us to the question of where to find a place to eat: Hungrygowhere is very helpful as are the trillions of food blogs. For example LadyIronChef, Daniel’s or ieatishootipost to name just three. Of course La Mian World helps you to find the best hand-made noodles, just click on ‘food’ in the menu above.

Go shopping

No need to look online, Singapore is one shopping centre disguised as a city. Maybe you want to explore the exciting boutiques in Haji Lane and one of the local designers like Hansel.

Getting Around

Now, how to get there: gothere is great!

Download the SBS Iris NextBus App for your mobile devices to know when the next Bus is coming or send a sms to 74744: Stop Number> space

Call 6342 5222 to get connected to the next available taxi company and book a taxi.

Friends Arriving

See some Different Aspects of the City

Walk some different sightseeing routes and follow the Heritage Trails around Singapore.

Missing Home

If you are not Singaporean and one day feel like seeing, speaking or tasting something from home, check out your countries’ embassy website. Many of them have listings of restaurants, shops and companies of the respective countries in Singapore. For those among you who are Austrian, German, Swiss or are curious about these countries footprint in Singapore I created this page.

Clarification: The listings on are subjective and of course in-complete. The information given proofed useful to me upon arriving in Singapore and living here, so it might help others. I am not associated with any of the websites or companies and also not responsible for the content of their web sites.
