Tanjong Pagar

Carlton City sits in the prime location of Tanjong Pagar, a historical district within the Central Business District. Its name reflects its origins as a fishing village and was an enclave for the thousands of Chinese and Indian dockworkers. The face of Tanjong Pagar is now one of constant change and thriving businesses, cafes, bars and restaurants.

Tanjong Pagar Plaza and Food Centre
The HDB residential development offers visitors a glimpse of life in the heartlands of Singapore. The building offers local mom-and-pop stores, coffee houses and the occasional night markets known as Pasar Malam. The Food Centre and Market is your one-stop for local cuisine and fresh groceries.

Walk down Tanjong Pagar Road and you will find ‘Koreatown’ with its many Korean dining establishments, speciality supermarkets and even Korean-themed wedding photography boutiques.
Duxton Hill
The former nutmeg plantation was also popularly known as Jinrickshaw Place for the many rickshaw pullers who parked their vehicles there. Today, many of the conserved shophouses have been converted to restaurants, bars, cafes, boutique gyms and retail outlets.
Everton Park
Nestled opposite Duxton Hill, Everton Park epitomises gentrification at its best. Indie cafes, restaurants and stores now sit amidst the old-school HDB estate. Walk further down and you’d find yourself in Spottiswoode Park – a quaint neighbourhood filled with beautiful shophouses that are converted into luxury homes and offices.
Amoy Street and Telok Ayer Road
Amoy Street and Telok Ayer Road were once noted for its opium smoking dens and notorious Chinese slave trade. World-class bars, restaurants, bespoke tailors, health-focused cafes and fitness spots have now replaced the old. It is also home to cultural sites such as Thian Hock Keng Temple and Al-Abrar Mosque.
