Add a Point to the Map

The Cathay is a 17-storey shopping mall and apartment building which was built in 1939. It was closed in 2000 for redevelopment and reopened in March 2006. Its main attraction is the historical façade of the original Cathay building that now stands at the entrance to the new Cathay. The facade has been made a national monument since the reopening of the Cathay.

It is also home to Cathay Cineplex which is one of the largest cinemas in Singapore. Shoppers take note that retail outlets found in the Cathay are quite expensive.
