A walk at Fort Canning Park

Missing the rich culture and iconic temples in Bali? Then, Fort Canning Park is a place that should not be missed. The park features nine historical gardens and one important park is the Sang Nila Utama Garden. With its beautiful antique statues and Javanese-inspired architecture, many have said that it feels just like Bali. The sunset hues at dusk are magical and a great time to take Insta-worthy pictures too.

Did you know? The decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese in 1942 was taken on this very iconic hilltop. According to National Parks, many of Singapore’s historical milestones were at Fort Canning Park.
