- Have you ever considered buying an HDB resale flat close to the city or renting an HDB flat nearer to your workplace at the Central Business District (CBD)?
City living has a long list of benefits, some of which we will explore here:
1. Mixed-use Development
City living’s biggest advantage comes in the form of its comfort beget by its layout. Helpful establishments – both necessary and recreational – are often situated at reasonable distances from residential areas, minimizing the need for long travel.
2. Plentiful opportunities
Since ancient times cities have always been the focal point of activity, which makes the prospect of opportunity rife within them. This is especially true in Singapore where individuals from all over the world converge daily, allowing for the high probability of meeting new people, gaining new experiences, and creating unforgettable moments.

3. Abundant Shopping Choices
Singapore’s shopping centers are world-renowned being able to cater to a wide variety of needs. For example, those looking to get the best bang for their buck can try shopping in Little India, the Chinatown Street Market, or the Bugis Street Market. On the other hand, those who want the full luxury shopping experience can try the Marina Bay Sands complex, the Vivo City mall, or even the iconic Orchard Road!
City living, especially in Singapore, rarely gets dull. Tourists and locals alike are free to enjoy its many attractions, all the while taking in its picturesque views, its pleasant climate, and its pristine surroundings. Best of all, most locations are easily accessible, needing only a couple of train or bus rides away.
5. Easy Transportation
Unsurprisingly, cities have well-developed transportation systems. Singapore’s is well-known to be near perfect, with trains, taxis, and buses always available and on time. This makes for an easy experience when it comes to inner-city travel, so there’s not much to worry about.
Living in the city may have its downsides, but the advantages one gains from it is far superior. Cities’ urban planning, points of interest, opportunities, and amenities considerably surpass whatever benefits living away from it could ever bring. However, in the end, it all comes down to a matter of preference.
