Great Investment, Absolutely Convenient
Southbank's location is fantastic. A few mins. walk to MRT; bus stops are just around the corner. If you want local food, there is the food market next door. If you prefer air conditioned local food, it's just right opposite at V Hotel. IF not, you can get western, Arab, Indian, Swedish, Japanese, Thai, you name it, all within walking distance. Supermarket, cinema, shopping, etc is all one or two MRT stops away. If you are sick, even Raffles Hospital is one MRT stop away. Many condos in the city are very congested. The swimming pool is surrounded by office buildings. It is not relaxing at all. Southbank has what you can get in the city but it gives you a more relaxing home feeling. Yes, the finishes are not top notch but neither are some of the condos in the prime area. It is white paint afterall. But if you stay on the high floor, it is very windy and you can actually see fireworks if the apartment is facing the right direction. You can walk to the new sport hubs, exercise around the river. In fact, you can jog to Marina Bay Sands along the river. This is a great investment and absolutely convenient.
