For all of my complaints about living in Singapore (mainly the heat, and prohibitively expensive housing and cars), I still think, in terms of security, economic stability and job opportunities, there are not many cities that can top the sunny island.

In fact, from 2015 to 2018, Singapore was voted best place for expats to work and live. After this 4-year reign, the city-state slipped to 2nd place, topped by Switzerland, in a HSBC annual league table of best places to work and live.

Even though we’d dropped off from 1st to 2nd overall, when it comes to consideration for expats with children, Singapore is ranked 1st.
