Ann Siang Hill Park

Not a lot of people include Ann Siang Hill Park in their essential Singapore park must-visits. That’s because it takes some effort to find this secret spot, unlike better-known parks like the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
At the end of Ann Siang Road lies this hidden garden dotted with shophouses that are carefully conserved and maintained. It’s a heady yet tranquil mix of foliage, greens, and historical sites that’s sure to soothe your urban-weary soul.
It also provides a glimpse of Singapore’s early immigrants with hints of its plantation past, superimposed with the more contemporary Singapore skyline.
