Wohoooooo! The long National Day weekend is here!
Since flights are crazy expensive, you’re likely stuck in Singapore this weekend. If you’re out of ideas on what to do over the long break, why not take cue from one of Singapore’s popular national songs ‘Singapore Town’ and “take a little trip around Singapore town in the Singapore city bus!”
I always feel that travelling on Singapore’s public buses is one of the best ways to explore our country – be it whether you’re in the heartlands or city centre. With our buses being so well-connected to all parts of the nation, it’s quite easy to get around the island and take in all that our wonderful city has to offer.
The future looks bright, especially with all the developments lined up in the next few years in Singapore, such as the Thomson-East Coast and Cross Island lines, along with the Punggol Business District. Taking all these positives into account, it’s also best you start planning for your own future and look at the multiple options on offer for your dream home.
So why not do something a little different this National Day weekend and start planning for your future in our wonderful city by visiting showflats in and around the country:
Located in the popular East Coast-Katong area, Amber Park is a freehold condominium which overlooks the sea yet is just minutes away from all the city has to offer. Being located in this popular district means you’ll never be short of dining options, ranging from cafes to quality local food. If you’re one for scenic views, you won’t be disappointed should you choose to reside here as majority of units face the north-south directions thus offering the best views of the coastline and city.
- Located at 102 Tanjong Rhu Road
- There are four bus stops located near the Amber Park Showflat, located near the Singapore Swimming Club (158 & 158A) and Tanjong Ria Condo (11, 158 & 158A)
Located in the Kovan estate, The Florence Residences is a unique condominium that aims to offer the “Lifestyle of a Club and Luxury of a Condo”, making it perfect for those who are lazy to set foot outside of their condominiums. Set to be completed in 2023, you can enjoy a myriad of facilities under one roof – 128 offerings as part of 12 clubs to be exact, which includes unique features such as a bouldering wall and a jamming studio.
- Located at 67-91 Florence Road

With the East, and Tampines in particularly, being a top residential area in Singapore, it’s no surprise Treasure at Tampines is one of the most highly anticipated launches in the East. Located where Tampines Court used to be, Treasure at Tampines is situated close by to both the PIE and TPE expressways – making travelling to various parts of Singapore a breeze, especially for those with their very own cars.
In the immediate vicinity, Treasure at Tampines is a walking distance away from the popular Tampines Round Market and Food Centre – ensuring you’re able to enjoy cheap and good eats with ease. Also close by is the SAFRA Tampines Club, where you’re able to enjoy and use several sporting facilities ranging from tennis and badminton courts to swimming pools.
- Located at Tampines Avenue 7
- The Treasure at Tampines showflat is located a stone’s throw away from the Tampines Concourse Interchange (18, 39, 129 & 298)
Located right in the heart of River Valley and alongside the iconic Singapore River, you’ll be able to make your dream of living by the riverfront a reality at Riviere where each unit will enjoy unobstructed views of the 3.2km waterway. You can also be assured of a lively and convenient lifestyle because of the Rivière’s strategic location amongst numerous shopping centres, dining establishments and the bustling Clarke Quay and Boat Quay areas close by. Moreover, Rivière is within walking distance of the upcoming Great World and Havelock stations on the new Thomson East Coast line.
- Located at 88 Zion Road
- The closest bus stop to the Riviere showflat is at the Boys Brigade HQ, where a number of buses go by (1N-6N, 5, 16, 75, 175,195 & 970)
The simple way to search for new launches
If you like to just view what’s on offer online, you can easily do so via SRX’s ‘New Launches’ portal. Here, you can simply refer to the New Project Insights to reference the percentage of units sold and launched, the average price, and average price per square foot (PSF), of various new and upcoming condominiums, all at a glance.
Once you’ve narrowed down your search to new projects down to fewer options, easily do a side-by-side comparison between up to 3 options as part of the Project Comparison platform, where you’ll be able to easily compare aspects such the condominium’s Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP), number of units and percentage sold to date, and the average unit size and PSF.
