We absolutely recommend a tour in Fort Canning hill in the heart of the city covering the historic battles of Singapore on a tour of a former World War II underground command centre of 26 rooms. Fascinating stuff!

We had a nice walk through this park on a Sunday morning. Very quiet and would be a great place for a nice run. Lots of trees, grass and a couple of nice spots for picture taking.
