Singapore is a city state and very built up but at the same time there are pockets of green which provide welcome relief..one of these is Fort Canning Park. Having never visited it before, I thought I’d explore it a bit….
Fort Canning is on a hill which overlooks the city and there are historical ruins and world war II buildings set in a park topped by a reservoir. There is also a hotel there…converted from an old building..the Fort Canning Hotel.
There are a few paths around the reservoir and it’s a shady cool walk with lots of interesting features…Stamford Raffles built his house on the hill, overlooking the city…with Raffles Terrace below..
The flagstaff is a replica of the orginal and stands majestically in front of the house..
