Business District

 

The vibrant nightlife, Heritage shophouses and gleaming skyscrapers makes this neighborhood our business travellers’ favourite. There are a myriad of things to look out for, but we got you!

Tanjong Pagar lies in the heart of the Business District. It is home to towering skyscrapers and also other hidden gems located within the Heritage shophouses in the area. In Malay, Tanjong Pagar means “cape of stakes” – reflecting its origins as a fishing village as the area had many kelongs (offshore fishing traps).

Tanjong Pagar has many streets that hold quirky tales. It is also within the Tanjong Pagar ward, where our late founding father, Mr Lee Kuan Yew stood for elections.

On the junction of Cecil Street lies Boon Tat Street. It holds tremendous historical significance. The street takes its name after Ong Lee Boon Tat, a former municipal commissioner and businessman who owns New World Park –  an amusement park in Jalan Besar.

This was what Boon Tat Street looked like in the past!

Along Boon Tat Street today, you can find a variety of food options to choose from – perfect for our foodies!
