Rental units around Fort Canning for $3k (or less) per month

4 min read

Fort Canning MRT is slated to start operating in October 2017, and this will be a gamechanger. Why? For the longest time ever, the River Valley and Mohammed Sultan area was only convenient to those who drive (you can cab on a daily basis, but it’ll cost you a pretty penny).

With the new MRT station located a stone’s throw away from River Valley and Mohammed Sultan, though, these two areas are now more accessible than ever. If you’re thinking of renting a room or an apartment in these areas, check out our list of rental units near Fort Canning MRT, all of which are going at $3,000 or less per month.
