The focal point of the financial and commercial centers in Singapore is called the Central Business District (CBD). To name a few, CBD includes Raffles Place, River Valley, Orchard, and Outram. Some of the most prestigious organizations both local and international have their offices compressed in this area.

Since most of the people here are hard-working employees, it is ideal to take a rejuvenating break every once in a while. If you agree, consider these nearby affordable places:


Close to the business offices is a neat and modern spa called Rule of Thumb. Do you want to see the spa for yourself? Click here for a panoramic view of the interior.
