Image Guest Post by Ben Holbook

Once you've decided to relocate abroad to live the expat life, there's something incredibly exciting about discovering all the nitty gritty details on what will soon be your new surroundings. Your next task is to learn as much as you can about your new home.

While the guide books are always very handy, it's sometimes hard to gather the finer and occasionally more boring details that are always good to know. Where can you find a good electrician? Are the independent shops good value for money? What are the best clubs to join in your area? There's also the question of how up -to-date the information you're reading is.

A better option is to look beyond the guide books to social media for the latest insights on Singapore. Yup, Twitter and Instagram are about so much more than just keeping in touch with friends and family back home. They're also about providing up-to-date, reliable information that's available at your fingertips. Read on for our favourite tips on using social media to find out more about the city.
