Housing types in Singapore vary widely. For landed property, you can choose from sprawling bungalows to cosy terraces. The vast majority of locals and expatriates live in high-rise apartments though, either in private condominiums or Housing Development Board flats which are comfortable, government-subsidised housing. If you are renting for the short-term, you might want to consider a serviced apartment or even a hostel. Most of these options have a vast range of sizes and amenities to suit every budget.
