Singapore Area Guides: Singapore Central

Downtown Core Area Guide

School Versus Education
“I am extremely anxious about the generation that is growing up literate but uneducated. They can read; they can write; they can pass examinations. But they are not really educated; they have not formed; they have not developed. They are not effective digits for the community.”
Lee Kuan Yew
1st Prime Minister of Singapore

Downtown Core is most definitely a place in Singapore to work, rest and play. As well as being the historical centre of Singapore, Downtown Core is home to the central business district and some of its most famous tourist attractions.



Located in the financial heart of the city-state, you'll find the Singapore Exchange, Supreme Court and Parliament buildings, as well as many global head offices. It's one of Singapore's most visited districts, with tourists and residents alike coming to walk across the Helix Bridge, stay at the iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel,  and visit the Singapore Art Museum. Other attractions include the Singapore Flyer and the waterfront promenade.
