Bukit Timah

With an altitude of 164 metres, Bukit Timah is the highest hill in Singapore. In this area, expatriates and wealthy Singaporeans are mostly the owners of the luxury apartments and bungalow as it is quite expensive to own a Singapore property. The Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is also located here which adds value to the Singapore property market.

Shopping malls, educational institutions like Raffles Girls’ Primary and Hwa Chong Institution plus the convenience of the Bukit Timah Expressway that extends to Johor-Singapore Causeway has attracted more buyers and other Singapore property investors to choose District 10 as their investment location.


 Tanglin village located opposite the Singapore Botanic Gardens is the community for diverse entrepreneurs, businessmen, artists, and the likes. Known to be a village that caters to lifestyle, education, and arts for the residents in the area, Tanglin has continued to develop to cater to both the locals and visitors’ needs.

The largest kindergarten in Singapore, namely St. James Kindergarten, is located in Tanglin and stays true to its claim of “Nature and Nurture.”

This small community in Tanglin continues to help grow the Singapore property market in District 10 as a prime location with condos near MRT being accessible for property owners and visitors.

Holland Village

 Popularly known as “Holland V” and Singapore’s Bohemian enclave, this village just behind the Singapore Botanic Gardens has a lot of Singapore real estate around it. An example of which is the Gallop Green located near the Holland Village MRT station.
