Fort Canning Green

-Fort Canning Hill has historically been important to Singapore. In this tour, we start by introducing this hill, to try and understand its rise in importance for political and economic reasons.

Spice Garden

-The impetus behind the founding of Singapore lies in the spice trade. In this segment of the tour, we learn about how the British attempted to establish Singapore’s first Botanic Gardens here on Fort Canning Hill.

Archaeological Excavation Site

-Early artefacts here confirm Singapore’s importance as a trading centre, even before the arrival of the British.

Parit Singapura & Mural Wall

Maritime Corner

-In this final part of the tour, we encounter various navigational structures such as the Lighthouse and Flagstaff, that reaffirm the importance of this hill to our trade and industry.
