Dhoby Ghaut, home to the President’s residence the Istana, has a bit of everything to offer. It’s very well connected with a big MRT interchange for the red, purple and yellow lines and many bus stops making commuting to most places a breeze. The atmosphere is lively due to the nearby SOTA Art College and Singapore Management University with plenty of bars and eateries dotted around.

For those craving culture you’ve got historical Fort Canning Park close by as well as the Singapore National Museum and you’re also only a short walk from the colourful sights and delicious foods of Little India. Dhoby Ghaut also couldn’t be better placed for shopping with one of the city’s best malls Plaza Singapura right on the doorstep and the famous Orchard Road only a 10 minute walk away.

Cove’s Top Picks:
- Kult Kafé for great cocktails, craft beers and sustainable food
- Plaza Singapura to shop till you drop
- My Art Space for an alternative weekend activity
- Fatboy’s Burger Bar for retro diner feel
- Rendezvous Hotel for great value karaoke
