What do I need to know before moving to Marine Parade?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Marine Parade, they said:

"Marine Parade is a residential estate located in the central part of the eastern coast of Singapore, known for its proximity to the beach and a variety of food and shopping options. Before moving to Marine Parade, expats should know that it is a popular residential area for both locals and foreigners due to its strategic location and vibrant community. The cost of living in Marine Parade can be quite high, with rental prices for apartments and condos being higher than in other parts of Singapore. Marine Parade is home to a number of reputable schools, making it a great place for expats with children. The area is well-served by public transportation, with several bus services and the nearby East-West MRT line providing easy access to other parts of Singapore. Marine Parade is known for its food scene, with a wide variety of local and international cuisines available at hawker centres, food courts, and restaurants. The area is also home to several shopping malls, including Parkway Parade and I12 Katong, which offer a wide range of retail and dining options. Expats moving to Marine Parade should be prepared for the hot and humid climate of Singapore, with temperatures often reaching above 30 degrees Celsius. Marine Parade is also home to East Coast Park, one of Singapore's largest and most popular parks, offering a range of recreational activities including cycling, inline skating, and water sports. Despite being a bustling area, Marine Parade also offers quiet residential enclaves, providing a balance of city living and tranquility. Healthcare facilities are easily accessible in Marine Parade, with several clinics and hospitals located in and around the area. Lastly, while English is widely spoken in Singapore, learning some basic phrases in Mandarin or Malay could be beneficial for expats living in Marine Parade," remarked one expat in Marine Parade, Singapore.
