The Central Business District or CBD is the name given to the city centre of Singapore. It encompasses the Financial District, Civic District and eleven urban planning areas namely the Downtown Core, Marina East, Marina South, Museum, Newton, Orchard, Outram, River Valley, Rochor, Singapore River and Straits View.

Through successive land reclamations, the Central Business District has grown in area. The term Central Business District came into popular use in the 1970s. In its early incarnation, the Central Business District included the Financial District, Chinatown, Civic District and the Orchard area.

Also included within the Central Business District of Singapore are sub-districts such as Ann Siang Hill, Dhoby Ghaut and Raffles Place.
