Based on a survey recently conducted by HSBC Bank International, Singapore is the 2nd best place for expatriates to raise their kids, following Australia, which got the number one spot. This particular survey included 3,100 expats coming from fifty different countries. According to Channel NewsAsia, fifty-six percent said that their kids easily integrated in the community while sixty-five percent said that their kids easily made friends in this country.
When asked about the education system, seventy-percent revealed that their kids easily adapted to it. Seventy-five percent even admitted that it is a better system than that in their home country. Many also voiced their strong approval of the childcare systems and were of the opinion that the environment is a safe one for their kids.
Lifestyle changes were considerably significant for many as well, as a lot of the expats said that their kids eat less junk food. Then again, they also end up spending less time in the great outdoors and playing sports.
