Defining luxury

District 9, the famed Orchard Road area, defines luxury and social status. Some of the largest shopping malls are found here, such as ION Orchard, 313@Somerset, Paragon and Orchard Central, as are some of the most prestigious homes.

Nature or business

District 10, the Grange/Bukit Timah area, is a favourite of nature lovers, thanks to its lush, green environment. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore's highest hill and most complex eco-reserve, is located here. Expatriates particularly appreciate the district's network of private members' clubs and prestigious international schools.

District 4, the Keppel/Sentosa area, adjoins the illustrious Resorts World Sentosa development, burgeoning in its global status as a zone of class, entertainment and cultural exchange.

District 1 is home to Singapore's financial hub and is nearest to the central business district. Complementing the Clarke Quay/Singapore River locale are the newly constructed Marina Bay Sands integrated resorts.
