Clementi is one of Singapore’s oldest neighbourhoods. Once a nondescript swampland, it has been transformed across 50 years into a bustling heartland today. Despite more modern amenities being gradually introduced, Clementi, which also encompasses the West Coast area, is still largely a traditional town, with a traditional way of life that has been embraced by both locals and expats alike. Whether you’re looking for a long-term or a short-term service apartment in Singapore, here’s a taste of what to expect living in Clementi.

Just over a decade ago, Clementi didn’t really have a shopping mall besides Ginza Plaza that was largely built to cater to the sizable Japanese expat population in the neighbourhood. Today, Clementi Mall greets commuters the moment they arrive at Clementi MRT station. There’s also 321 Clementi mall a little further behind, and the former Ginza Plaza, which has since been refurbished and renamed to West Coast Plaza, a slightly more upmarket shopping mall. Despite the increasing number of malls to visit, there are also traditional shophouses and wet markets synonymous with older Singaporean neighbourhoods for a better taste of local wares. Staying in a West Coast service apartment places you in close proximity to a mix of modern and traditional retail options.

While Clementi may appear unassuming at first glance, its tranquillity is what endears residents to the neighbourhood. The most prominent leisure hotspot in the area is arguably, West Coast Park, and while it dwarfs in size and activities to its larger counterpart, East Coast Park, there’s still plenty to do, from letting your child play in one of the many sprawling playgrounds, to taking a peaceful jog through lush greens, to even cycling with one of Singapore’s largest cycling group, who so happens to gather at West Coast part on some weekday evenings and weekend mornings. There are also other large parks in the neighbourhood, such as Clementi Woods Park, where you’ll have opportunities to grow and maintain your own small garden. If you’re renting a 1-bedroom serviced apartment in Singapore and don’t have the space to rear your own plants, this could be an ideal solution for you. Parks aside, you can also find trendy bistros and cafes along Sunset Way, enjoy a game of billiards or bowling at West Coast Recreation Centre, and more.
Clementi boasts a number of high-achieving institutions both locally and internationally, such as Nanyang Primary School, NUS High School, and the globally acclaimed National University of Singapore itself. For Japanese expats, there is even The Japanese School that covers elementary and junior high school levels. With a wide range of educational, leisure, and retail amenities in the neighbourhood, as well as its generally relaxed pace of life, Clementi is a great place to raise a family, and with Expat Corporate Apartments’ extensive options for a 2-bedroom serviced apartment in Singapore and 3-bedroom serviced apartment in Singapore, there is more than enough space to accommodate a growing family.
