New Singaporean in Zurich

Hello everyone!

I just moved from always-sunny-Singapore to beautiful Zurich 3 weeks ago and will be here for work for the next 2 to 3 years.

According to the Singapore Ministry of Foreign affairs website there are only 200+ Singaporeans in the whole of Switzerland - I'm wondering if there are any in Zurich currently and will come across this thread here

Thank you! Zurich is beyond beautiful and I'm looking to explore the rest of Switzerland. This forum has been tremendously helpful as well, really glad to have found it.

Re: New Singaporean in Zurich

Hello! I'm also from Singapore, going to exchange in August to December this year. Hope you've been settling in alright. Just posted my own introduction in the forum.

Re: New Singaporean in Zurich

Hello - early welcome to Zurich. It's a lovely city and it's a great time to be moving here during the summer. Drop me a PM when you're here and if you need any help!

Re: New Singaporean in Zurich

Ahhhh... Hope you're enjoying Singapore! I've come to realize Switzerland and Singapore share a lot of similarities in terms of safety and efficiency.

Re: New Singaporean in Zurich

I actually think everyone I've met so far (in central Zurich) has been really nice and friendly but I'm moving to Erlenbach in 2 weeks, hopefully everyone is just as nice there! I have high hopes!
