Livability in Singapore 7

Singapore is a highly liveable place, if we look at the low crime rate, good infrastructure and efficient public services. Others say that this question of livability should be posed to those occupying the most disadvantaged positions. Foreign domestic housekeepers and migrant construction workers could be a start.

I do like the grid from the bird mesh on your window vantage point, Ayush.

Singapore's very finite land creates a need for very careful planning, and so you question is especially important.

It looks to be a fabulously modern place Ayush
I guess Singapore need to go up rather than out. The words 'low crime rate' appeal to me compared with the U.K.
You are right to want to include the disadvantaged class. Your livability scale might have taken it into consideration.

It is hard for me to imagine myself living in a high rise.
It isn't my idea of liveability if I am honest Ayush....but then I don't like big cities or skyscrapers!
It is certainly impressive Ayush.
i love your photo of the skyline after dark Ayush....petersmile

All "statement" buildings; probably the more important the business believes itself to be the higher the building smile
I saw a tourist advert for Singapore yesterday and recognised it, from your pictures Ayush! smile
This is a great shot! I love how clear and steady you've captured the lights!
My guess is that the foreign domestic housekeepers and migrant construction workers there are similar to those in America (usually of Mexican heritage) who are thankful for the jobs no one else wants for such cheap pay, Ayush? For some it's seen as a win-win, but in the long run, it perpetuates income inequality throughout the world. (sigh)

What a great view, Ayush. I think all big cities have the problem with foreign workers in general, they do the job most people do not "want" but in the end I would like to see that they make a good living and get "higher" up the ladder of succes and can profit of their hard labor.
the chain link fence speaks of the economic divide.. great shot, Ayush!

The chicken wire sort of implicates a city caught in the folds of domestication. It goes well with your ongoing theme.

About the crime rate - one should always remember that crime increases with the increase in poverty. To those folks it is a matter of staying alive.. It would be very difficult to imagine oneself in that position, when one is living well above the breadline.

We live in times where so many people flock to cities as if it is Nirvana and free food and stuff is available on the streets. In Africa (and I am sure the East) they leave their plots of land and other living resources behind. Soon they live in utmost squalor in the cities. That voluntary dehumanising boggles my mind. Of course I know that there are many cases who are starving in the rural areas. There are also so many who climb down the livability staircase by moving to cities.
