Fort Canning Park, Singapore
(4.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Experience Fort Canning Park, one of Singapore's most popular landmarks and green spaces. Excavations of this park have revealed that it may have been the center of trade as far back as the 1400s. Malay kings ruled from the top of this hill, and it remained a centerpiece of the island during its 19th-century transformation into a major trade hub, plus it was a military base during World War II. Today visitors can view old relics of the island's past, set up a picnic, or attend a concert or special event. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Fort Canning Park and many more Singapore attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Singapore travel itinerary planner.

  • 這個地區是新加坡歷史的核心。它開始作為皇家墓地,然後植物園,州長住宅,軍事堡壘等。這裡有一個香料花園,一些考古遺址,第二次世界大戰展示,藝術中心,舊堡和一家酒店。這個地方很受英國遊客的歡迎,因為它們想知道英國在二戰的角色。請注意:你要早上來到這裡,或下午晚些時候來到這裡,才能避開炎熱天氣。記得帶一瓶水。當然,如果你真的渴了,你可以下山,去附近的餐館或便利店買喝的。

  • If you don't mind a few steps you should definitely take a wander through this park. I recommend you take an umbrella on a hot day to ward off the sun and extra humidity from over hanging greenery.

  • Not a regular fixture on many tourists itineraries, Fort Canning Park is a hidden gem. It doesn't have the heavily made-up touristy feel to it like most of the other more popular destinations. It's a great place for a quiet stroll and taking a peek into the origins of Singapore. A short trek to the top of the hillock leads you to the first lighthouse of the port city.
  • Used to be called Bukit Larangan, Forbidden Hill. Nice little park with lots of history and squirrels. There is a spice garden, an archaeological dig, a shrine of a Singapore Sultan, lighthouse & the site where Lieutenant-General Arthur Percival made the fateful decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese on 15 February 1942. There is toilets and vending machine along the way. Walk duration : 60mins+ Tips: If you hate stairs, the best way up is by Singapore National Museum. There is a outdoor escalator on the left side of the museum.
  • A hidden green gem in the heart of the city. This place is gorgeous, uncrowded and offers something to the fitness buff or just someone looking for a walk in nature. There are some cultural spots along the paths to enjoy as well the restaurants in the main central building. Overall a very quite place and a nice place to getaway.
  • Nice to walk here when the weather is nice. Do not walk at night since it's eerie. A quick google search will tell you what happened here years ago.
  • Extremely beautiful Park, lots of interesting trees and information panels! Park is huge and you mainly walk around a reservoir. There's a small outdoor fitness location. There's lots to learn about Singapore's history from the bunker
