On a visit to the island there are many places other than the nearest shopping complex that should be on your to-do list. One of these places is the Pearl’s Hill City Park, which is a must see landmark that is situated away from the teeming city bustle. With a serene, tranquil environment and picturesque landscape, this is one the best locations that extol the many beauties of the island. Located near the Outram Park MRT Station, travellers have easy access to this area through Pearl Bank. Other entrances could also be found at Chin Swee Road, Pearl’s Hill Terrace and Pearl’s Hill Road.
Built surrounding a reservoir, the park itself is on top of a hill. Tucked towards a corner of Chinatown, its calming, woody ambiance can be experienced without any interruption from city traffic. Sprawling with Tembusu Trees, this park offers a variety of activities such as fishing, nature walks, hill climbing, hikes and park tours. The park that is nine Hectares in size is also famous for the species of birds and insects that can be found. From turtles to dragonflies and ladybugs to spiders, the park is a nature lovers’ paradise. The surrounding area is liberally sprinkled with restaurants and Pearl Shopping Centre and Chinatown is just a short distance away, which means that anything the traveller needs will be at their fingertips.
There are many lodging options to choose from during your visit to the island, but one Singapore hotel reservation that should be at the top of your choice list is Copthorne King’s Hotel Singapore. Located along the Singapore River, this charming Singapore 4 star hotel will provide the traveller with the perfect getaway to rest in.
