This area covers the Central Business District (CBD) in downtown Singapore. Found here are the Raffles Place / Shenton Way / Robinson Road financial and business hubs, the conservation heritage areas of Chinatown and Tanjong Pagar, and the Marina Bay / Marina South land area on which the future Marina Bay Sands Casino Integrated Resort is being built.
In the upper-left quadrant, the Singapore River is seen meandering its way inland from the Marina Bay.
The East Coast Parkway expressway enters from the upper-right corner and runs southwest to meet the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) in the vicinity of Marina Bay MRT subway station (NS27) of the North-South Line.
The Central Expressway (CTE) cuts across the upper-left quadrant passing Havelock Road and Outram Road along its way to Jalan Bukit Merah.
