District 1

Boat Quay, Raffles Place, Marina

District 1 is crucial to Singapore’s burgeoning economy because this is where many of the city-state’s most popular tourist attractions are. This is also home to a number of prominent banks and governmental offices. Although skyscrapers are plentiful, you will also see nicely restored warehouses and colonial buildings that reflect this area’s historically humble beginnings. 

According to The Straits Times in mid-2013, Singapore’s District 1 was the top choice among potential property buyers. There are 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom units available at The Sail at Marina Bay priced on average at $2,573 per square foot (psf). Other popular developments in District 1 are V on Shelton and Marina Bay Suites, with Marina Bay Suites asking the highest prices at about $2,748 psf.  

Boat Quay

Boat Quay is located along the northern and southern shoreline of the Singapore River and is at the heart of Singapore’s nightlife and entertainment. This is where you will find plenty of fancy restaurants, open-air dining, bustling bars, and friendly pubs. Boat Quay is also where you can choose among a variety of cuisines, from Asian to Western with well-known eateries and restaurants like Fuqing Seafood, Authentic Hock Lam Street Popular Beef Kway Teow, The Cavern and The Penny Black. 

All these places have made Boat Quay one of the hottest hangout spots for a lot of expats and professionals, not only because it’s close to the office towers, but the excitement of Boat Quay lets everyone escape the pressures of work, to recharge before returning.

Raffles Place

Raffles Place is filled with administrative and commercial offices, which are evident in all the commercial developments, which include OCBC Centre, One Raffles Quay, One Raffles Place, Republic Plaza, and UOB Plaza. Also, this is where the Singapore Exchange (stock exchange) is located, as well as the Supreme Court, Parliament House, and City Hall. 

You will also find a number of other iconic monuments and buildings in this locality, which include the Merlion, Singapore’s national icon, the Fullerton Hotel, and the Esplanade Theatre (a.k.a. “The Durian”).  

Marina Bay

Marina Bay is utterly gorgeous, especially at night at the Waterfront Promenade, which surrounds Marina Bay and the beautifully designed Helix that joins Bayfront and Marina Centre. This is where you will find the Youth Olympic Park. Also, the Gardens by the Bay must be mentioned because this highly acclaimed design is astounding and has attracted visitors from all parts of the world.
