Singapore does not technically have any "Southern" districts, as the southern area of the island is considered the "Central" districts. However, we do have an area known as the Northeastern part of Singapore, where the largest town is Hougang with the population of 800,000+. This region is mainly made up of newly developed towns like Punggol and Sengkang; you’ll find more young newly-wed couples or young families in the areas.

The West Region is the largest (by size) area in Singapore and has a population of over 1 million living in the area, with Jurong West being the largest town.
