The walking tour to fort canning was a pleasant one and very informative with the history of the beginning of Singapore. My guide Pavla was showing us a walk through time the resting place of the last king of Singapore. 👍

If you like walking, and aren't too worried about slopes and steps, then a walk around this historic park you'll enjoy. There is plenty of history around the park, as well as the WW2 Battlebox.

We decided to walk ‘through Singapore’ via the Forest Canning park and grounds. The area is certainly very interesting and certainly worth the effort to get there. We spent perhaps 2 hours wandering around on the way through to other areas. Recommended.

Great space to walk around . Excellent pathways and trees to view. Good art situated along the walkways along with plenty of great spots to picnic and just chill out. Love going down to the Battle Box also.
