Student life in Singapore

Singapore is one of Asia’s most international cities, and the multicultural vibe here is ubiquitous. A walk through this city is like stepping across the globe as you pass through Little India, Chinatown, downtown’s British colonial district, and the Malay-Arab Kampong Glam neighborhood. EF’s activities coordinators are onsite to introduce you to a city where East meets West on nearly every street.

Sightseeing & Culture

Sample authentic dim sum in a Chinatown eatery, browse the bustling shops of the Little India district and tour the magnificent Sultan Mosque of the Kampong Glam district. Stroll across the ultra-modern Helix Bridge, whose curving pedestrian walkway elegantly crosses Marina Bay. Take in the city’s best view from the Singapore Flyer, downtown’s massive observation wheel. Glide across the sky aboard a cable car on your way to the white sands of Sentosa Island, home to a theme park, wildlife reserves and palm tree-line beaches.

Sports & Outdoors

Dig your feet into the white sand of a Kusu Island beach and swim in the crystal waters of Pulau Hantu island. Hike the lush, tropical forests of the Bukit Batok Nature Park and mountain bike on the muddy trails of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Spot seahorses while snorkeling around the fish-filled coral reefs of Sisters’ Island.


On the weekends, you’ll have the chance to take unforgettable trips to Singapore’s neighboring countries. Explore Malaysian culture while visiting Kuala Lumpur, Johor Bharu and the Penang Islands. Scuba dive in Indonesia’s picture-perfect Bali and discover Buddhist treasures in Thailand.


Live like a local. You’ll feel at home in Singapore – whether you’re enjoying chili crab with a local family or living at EF’s residence in the Bukit Timah District.
