Fort Canning Park is a quiet and shady park on an iconic hilltop right in the middle of the city of Singapore. Some of the interesting spots for photography are the Fort Gate- remnant of a fortress built in the 19th century, tombs of the 19th century (Singapore’s first Christian Cemetery), there is a Spice Garden, the ASEAN Sculpture Garden, Battle Box- a former underground military complex that was used in World War II, spiral staircase with an opening on top at the underground crossing, outdoor lawns, lots of greenery, Cannon, lighthouse, boutique Hotel Fort Canning. Some part of the park provides a good view of the city and surrounding. The well maintained garden adds to the charm of the park which takes one through the history of Singapore. Parking will be a problem if there are events at Fort Canning.
