Museums, modern architecture and family fun await you in the Civic District. Here’s our guide to the historic neighbourhood.
1 Fort Canning Park
Spend the morning with a quiet stroll at Fort Canning Park, a popular haunt among history buffs and nature lovers alike. Before the British landed in Singapore, this site was known as the Forbidden Hill, where Malay royalty once ruled.
Pay a visit to the Spice Garden, where you can learn about the herbs and plants used in our local cuisine, or journey into the past at Battlebox, an underground military bunker that was at the centre of British command during World War II.
For lunch, indulge in flavourful pastries and brunch at the Fabulous Baker Boy—Their pancakes are bound to be a hit with kids and adults with a sweet tooth.
