This area is great for an architecture fan.From the Cavanagh Bridge the area extends along the river and further.It was great to see one skyscraper had blended the facade of the past building in that spot into its glass frontage. There were colonial buildings that showed this island's amazing heritage. Just a look to the sky and see futuristic structures

This is a business district where you can find all the offices of the big companies and banks. Its just special because of the modern architecture and the use of alot of glass.

This is the commercial and financial hub of Singapore. CBD is a mix of the past and the present and is a well consolidated avenue for business, education and leisure.

This is the modern area south of the Singapore River that consists of many modern high rise buildings as is you might expect quite impressive.The area is adjacent to the Marina Bay area and raffles Plaza and is worth a visit. Access is easy by the MRTS.

A very clean place. The central plaza is also the biggest smoking place in Singapore that I've been to. Just keep in mind to dress up when going here in the day. All of the people here are in their business suit.
