History & The Empire Tour / 3D2N Staycation

Tombs, Ramparts & Reservoir: Fort Canning Revealed (Morning/Afternoon)

Lush and green, Fort Canning is one of Singapore’s most historic places. Reflecting over 700 years of history, from the heyday of the Malay kings of Temasek until the British arrival in 1819, the hill was a seat of power.

Now it’s an urban park—a veritable green island in the heart of the city. Come along on a treasure hunt and discover Fort Canning’s many layers of history!

Starting at the foot of Fort Canning Hill, you will discover some of Singapore’s oldest landmarks—the Armenian Church, Central Fire Station, and Masonic Lodge. You’ll walk through the European burial grounds listening to stories about Singapore’s notable 19th-century personalities. Next, we stroll through the lush oasis of Fort Canning’s gardens and the shrine of the Malay kings where your guide shares stories of ancient springs and bathing princesses.
