The Central Region or Central Area has always been an important part of Singapore. Over the past decades, the city core has evolved into areas of distinct character as a result of good city planning. Would you like to live in the heart of the city, surrounded by lush greenery, enjoying an array of conveniences and leisure opportunities that the city offers? Or drop by a café in a city park next to your office after work, chill out over a glass of beer, before strolling to a nearby discotheque for some serious fun? What about studying and living in the city, while soaking into the arts and cultural activities around your campus? This is the future that you can experience in the Central Area.
Shophouses in the historical district of Chinatown, juxtaposed with skyscrapers in the business and financial hub at Raffles Place. Orchard Road, lined with shopping malls and lush mature trees. The cluster of museums, concert halls and theatres in the Civic District. Singapore’s signature skyline, which has graced many postcards and travel magazines. These are just some of the sights in the Central Area that are both familiar and enduring to Singaporeans and visitors alike.
