River Valley Road – 8 St Thomas Location in the City

River Valley is an area in the-central region-of Singapore, and it is-a planning-area. It is at the south of Orchard, east of Tanglin, north of Singapore River and west of Museum.

The history of River Valley can be traced back to 1830s, when rich merchants from China and Europe started building their home there. The secluded area adjoining Singapore River, as well as the fact that River Valley is on high ground strongly appeals to the merchants who just want to stay away from the crowded town center. Dr Thomas Oxley, a surgeon, is one of the earliest residence in River Valley.

River Valley Road was also famous among Straits Chinese. Tan Jiak Kim, who is the grandson of Tam Kim Seng, built a mansion for him in the 1860s. He also helped finance building infrastructure in the area, which contributed to the rapid development of River Valley during that period. As a result, we can see a road named after him: Kim Seng Road.

There are several other wealthy merchants living in the area and built mansions for their own enjoyment. A Malacca-born Chinese merchant named Lee Cheng Yan was another example. However, most of these mansions have been demolished, and the only one that survives is House of Tan Yeok Nee. It is a traditional Chinese house built by, again, a wealthy merchant in the late 19th century, and is now a national monument.

Today, the residential areas in River Valley are for middle and high income citizens. Apart from that, Singaporeans also sees it as a great place for food. Most popular restaurants in Singapore like Bong Tong Kee which sells chicken rice shop, and River alley Nasi Padang are located exactly in this region. Therefore, with the combination of high income individuals and excellent cuisine, it seems appropriate to say that River Valley is the heart of Singapore.
