Interesting thread.. my in laws stay there now. Downgraded from sembawang mrt oppo 4 room flat to a new bto 3 room. It's a nice estate and have to agree with some fellow edmwers that it's a quiet and relaxing place. Good for retirement to be honest.

Me and wife had a chance to get a bto there.. out of 1k plus flats (I think it was 2018 or something) we saw the subscription was around 800-900 plus. But decided against it because of the journey from our work locations. Gotta say I didn't regret my choice.. but if I'm retiring and done with hustling Canberra really feels nice

It is a fact that Sembawang is ulu.

Only ideal if you are working in northern region, likes going Johor Bahru, outdoor lover, relatively cheaper property price or a quiet and peaceful environment to reside/retire.

I been staying in Sembawang for more than a year, my family is happy here. I got two supermarkets and two food courts just downstairs from my 270k 4rm, I can walk to the mrt in less than 10 mins or take a bus to northpoint in less than 15. I can jog to the park and see the beach. My block is quiet and clean. Neighbours are friendly.

There is a lot of good food in the area no matter what you like to eat laksa chicken rice grilled seafood western food steamboat hokkien mee burgers pizza white beehoon

There are primary secondary schools within walking distance and Republic poly is a 15 Mon direct bus ride away and nyp a short MRT ride

Bukit Canberra will be completed next year with a polyclinic, gym, nature trail, outdoor and indoor swimming pool. Just a ten minute jog away.

So all you ppl who say yislum or slumberra or slumbawang, you don't know anything
Been to Yishun recently n the ppl I approached v nice. Be it the jiu Hu accent really xdd or local auntie. V friendly n give extra mile to help

I like Ulu Sembawang. Ulu means less crowd. Means more peace.

You have this feeling like you are in some part of a fishing village in Malaysia!
