Fort Canning Park is a little bit of a haven in Singapore - as it is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. In the colonial days of British rule, it served as the army barracks and its headquarters. It is worth climbing...More

Fort Canning Park is a very pleasant park in the middle of Singapore. A hill itself is a park, and you can take a walk without being disturbed by car. It is not hard to climb, and I am sure it is worth.

Quite unlike the nature reserve protected for its flora and fauna or an area of important geological or special interests with its unique ecosystems, parks are “designed” with humans in mind for various purposes largely recreational – jogging, walking and cycling, or social gatherings like...More

It's a beautiful garden and a nice place to have a walk or jog. You'll feel amazing walking here. You get free entry in the garden. If you're in Singapore, I think it's a place to visit. The place is well connected by a metro...More

Walked along Coleman Street and up the Canning Rise , involves climbing several steps. Large area, full of greenery. Different types of plants all around. Didn't get time to visit the bunker.

Well worth the time. Go into the bunker and learn about a piece of history that many don’t appreciate or know much about. Learn how 50,000 Japanese with superior equipment and fighting experience overwhelmed a poorly equipped British Empire force of 120,000. See the confined...More

We spent a morning walking around the gardens of Fort Canning- lovely shady areas with pathways and seating areas. We were going to do the Battlebox Tour, but all the morning tours were full- would suggest booking if you want to do a tour at...More

What an incredible place. The fort and bunker are set on a famous hill, only 5 minute walk from the nearest MRT. Well worth paying around $18 for the bunker tour that takes about 90 minutes. Very informative and the guide was very happy to...More

Better to be armed with the facts rather than a guess. Drinking alcohol in public places, which includes parks, is only banned after 10:30pm so unless you are having a very late picnic, there is no issue. If you do a search... More
