What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Sentosa Cove. They wrote...

"Expats in Sentosa Cove often find the language barrier to be a significant challenge, as while English is widely spoken, the local Singlish dialect can be difficult to understand. The high cost of living in Singapore, particularly in an upscale area like Sentosa Cove, can also be a challenge for many expats. Some expats may also struggle with the local food, which is heavily influenced by Chinese, Malay, and Indian cuisines and can be quite different from Western food. The hot and humid climate can also be difficult to adjust to, particularly for those from cooler climates. Additionally, Singapore's strict laws and regulations, such as those regarding littering and chewing gum, can be a culture shock for expats. Finally, while Singapore is a multicultural city, some expats may still experience culture shock or feel isolated due to cultural differences," remarked another expat in Sentosa Cove, Singapore.
