​SINGAPORE

Hello, Singapore.


Singapore is a global financial centre with a tropical climate and multicultural population. With a population size of over 5.5 million people, it is a very crowded city, and is the world's second most densely populated country.

Due to the country's strict laws and squeaky clean surface, Singapore has a reputation amongst travelers for sterile predictability.

As one of Asia's financial, tech and startup hub, there are some great tech startup incubators and accelerators in Singapore.

It is easy being a digital nomad in Singapore, with the abundance of coworking spaces, cafes, meetups and the ease of using English for everyday conversation.

Women digital nomads will feel at ease in Singapore, due to the very low crime rate and lack of violent crimes. Walking alone at night is not an issue and there are no dangerous neighborhoods unlike other major cities.

Singapore is one of the most expensive cities in the world for locals, expatriates and visitors alike. The most affordable accomodation would be to rent a room in a shared public housing flat(HDB) - Singapore's public housing blocks are unlike the public housing in western countries.

You will find Singapore weather hot and humid whatever time of year you visit. However, some months may not be as warm as others, but in general they are all pretty hot.

The best time to visit Singapore may be during the Northeast monsoon (November to early March) when the temperatures cool a little compared to the rest of the year.
