South of the river, but between our hotel (Park Palace) and the city centre, this fort is a bit off the beaten path, but it is definitely a hidden gem! It was not crowded at all. Set on a hill across the river, it has an amazing view of the city. It's a fort, but they use it largely as an exhibition space. We mainly went to see the fort and the city view, but you buy a ticket for the exhibition. When we went it was a modern Chinese artist, which was interesting and worked very well in the space. There was a very chic cafe/bar that didn't serve much food, but apparently does a nice Sunday brunch. We were there for Sunday lunchtime and ended up eating pancakes with real maple syrup and scrambled eggs with fresh squeezed orange juice! The server was super friendly. We just wanted to lounge there for hours with the lovely view and nice breeze in the big comfy outdoor sofas! It borders the gardens, but that's a separate ticket. Next time!
