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 Marine Parade. They wrote...

"Expats in Marine Parade 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, particularly for housing and cars, can also be a shock for many expats. The hot and humid climate can be uncomfortable for those used to cooler temperatures. The strict laws and regulations, such as those against littering or chewing gum, can also be a challenge for expats to adapt to. The local food, while diverse and flavorful, can be a bit of a culture shock for those not used to Asian cuisine. Lastly, the fast-paced, competitive lifestyle in Singapore can be stressful for expats," commented one expat who made the move to Marine Parade, Singapore.
