Fort Canning

Part of the 19th-century fortifications to protect Singapore, Fort Canning was built on top of a hill overseeing the coastal port and was home to both European and Indian soldiers.

It is a great place to visit as the gardens are shaded from a hot city, I went along around lunchtime and with the exception of a few people taking a break from work to enjoy the green environment and a few tourists like myself, it was quite deserted so you can slowly walk around and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, there is also a battle box which is an underground military site that was used during WORLD WAR TWO

It is situated in the heart of the city with the famous shopping area of Orchard Road on one side and the river lined bars of Clarke Quay down the other side.
