About
A spillover from the Mohamed Sultan area, River Valley also contains many clubs and pubs. Besides that, this district is also rife with businesses, residential areas and hotels. Like the river flows gently to the sea, River Valley Road connects you from Singapore's city centre to the more subdued housing estates in the Bukit Merah and Alexandra areas.

History
River Valley came to acquire its name because it was located on the northern bank of the Singapore River and was flanked by small valleys. Oxley, in River Valley, was where the house of Singapore 's first Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, is located. Today, Oxley Road comprises condominiums and bungalows with tight security.
