Orchard Road

North of the Singapore River over to the west of Central Business District is the world-renowned Orchard Road. The road got its names from the orchards and plantations that used to exist in the area up until the 20th century. Misfortune struck when an epidemic swept through the nutmeg plantations back in the 1900s. Floods were a bane to their existence and caused numerous problems to the orchards. The solution was to deepen and widen the Stamford Canal, which runs below the pedestrian mall in front of Wisma Atria Shopping Centre. The 1970s was a golden age for Orchard as pioneering landmarks such as C.K.Tangs, Plaza Singapura and Mandarin Hotel were erected along the road. Towards the eastern Bras Basah end of Orchard Road lies colonial architecture and historical museums.

River Valley

River Valley is a residential area with private properties for the middle and high income earners of the population. It is located north of Orchard Boulevard, Devonshire Road and Eber Road, the south of Martin Road and Singapore River and the west of Hoot Kiam Road and Grange Road.
