Fort Canning Hill, Singapore

Fort Canning Park, an iconic hilltop landmark has witnessed many of Singapore’s historical milestones. The hill once sited the palaces of 14th century Malay Kings and served as the Headquarters of the Far East Command Centre and British Army Barracks. The decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese on 15 February 1942 was also made on the hill, in the Underground Far East Command Centre, commonly known as Battle Box.

Today, Fort Canning Park is a venue for celebrations. Its expansive, sprawling lawns play host to concerts, theatre productions and festivals such as Shakespeare in the Park, Ballet Under the Stars, Shakespeare in the Park and Films at the Fort, while weddings, parties and gatherings are a regular sight in the park’s venue spaces. Its ancient artefacts are a must-see for history buffs, and its lush greenery and expansive lawns offer a variety of arts, heritage and nature experiences. Whether you are drawn by the park’s ancient artefacts and rich heritage or simply its tranquillity, this hilltop park offers something for the whole family.

新加坡樟宜国际机场2号航站楼

从新加坡市区到机场Uber大约22新元,耗时20多分钟。因为搭乘全日空航班,来到新加坡机场2号航站楼。全日空的值机人员面无笑容,颇为冷淡。这些工作都是交给机场的代理来处理的吧。上次沙特阿拉伯航空新加坡出发也是一个友族同胞办理值机,把我的航空公司常旅客编号输错,损失了好几千英里里程。

这次有所改进的是值机大厅就有充电插头。很多航空公司可以提前最多24小时值机,然后大家就可以出境到候机区休息了。新加坡机场边检区前后都不安检(出境前有抽查进行行李扫描,但大家一样可以把饮料带入,因为并非正式登机安检)。大家办理完出境手续后,可以在机场免税店购物、餐饮、娱乐、休息,临出发再去登机口,那里需要安检才能进入登机口的候机室。建议飞机起飞前至少30分钟抵达登机口接受安检,如果仅剩10分钟才抵达安检口有可能无法登机。

T2有好几个花园,白天夜晚都开放,包括楼上的向日葵花园。
