Bangkok or Singapore

If you were offered a role in Bangkok and an almost identical role in Singapore paying double the Bangkok salary, where would you base yourself and why?

I would ask Bobcock that, he is the only member I have met that is on a real expat package. It depends so much on the profession as his thread was showing till it drifted off a bit. I am sure there are more and few have left so its only Bob...

Several other members based in different countries both Asia and beyond will respond. I know a Kiwi that will for sure.

Nobody who genuinely wanted an answer to that question would provide so little detail.

Nice idea, especially with Thai Lion hammering prices on the route.

I suspect, actually I know that the cost of living in Singapore is more than double that of Bangkok. So double salary in Sing would not tempt me.

Close thread.

Quite a few Willy, but not so many recently........ Met Sunsetter last weekend, he seems to be doing quite well. But he has not posted in over a year....

I went to the Harrow school years ago to meet you at a cricket match. You did not show.. Heard something about sick...

Singapore every time and if you fancy some breathing space just poodle up to Kuantan or thereabouts for a longish weekend.
If one has a good employment package based in Singapore then there's no real reason to go anywhere else and certainly there'd be no reason to visit Thailand unless it was to see friends or family.

The difference? Singapore is protected sex with a civilised companion in a five star hotel, Bangkok is sloppy seconds, barebacked with a crazy whore in a hostel with broken drains.

Thats the rub though. OP says double salary for singapore with no mention of package.

Lets say 4k per month salary in BKK so 8k salary in Singapore.

Bang for buck you are better off in BKK.

If on the other hand it is double salary with expat perks like housing/transport etc etc well then yes you are better off in singapore.

It's so strict in Singapore. Worked there for 2 years and I must say people are well disciplined but the cost of living there is quite high compare to Bangkok. Right now I'm staying in Bangkok and it's way cheaper here so must say Bangkok.
