The Civic District, Singapore

In the Civic District, a clutch of elegant period buildings huddle together in the shadow of Singapore's skyscrapers. The most striking of the group is the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, dating from 1862 and topped by a 54-metre high clock tower. This cluster of culture is surrounded by green space, including a cricket pitch, making it the ideal spot to wander away from the hustle and bustle of the shopping districts.
