Singapore is a truly multicultural city with a fascinating history. Your first week there could see you enjoying Michelin Star Street Food, the world-famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel with its rooftop bars and infinity pool, combined with a short escape from the city to the oasis of Fort Canning park.

The city has a population of roughly 5 million, almost 2 million of which are international expatriates. Whilst Singapore does have a reputation for being an expensive city to live and work in, many teachers we’ve placed there find that the high salaries on offer means they have a very comfortable standard of living. You can read more about this here.

Singapore is also a fantastic base for travel in South East Asia, with Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Laos all being a short flight away. By far one of the most interesting and desirable locations in the world, you can get an idea of the city here:
