Mount Faber Park

By: deliatoh on 16 Dec 2011

Mount Faber is a hill located in the Central Region of Singapore, as part of the Bukit Merah Planning Area. It is a popular tourist destination as it is not only a place perfect for birdwatching, leisure activities and admiring the scenic view of Singapore, but also a wonderful nature reserve covered by a secondary rainforest that stabilises the area. The vegetation also decorates the park, as examples of Singapore's commonly found flora lies along the terrain.

Those who love scenic views and refreshing walks, while being close to nature must not miss Mount Faber Park, one of Singapore's oldest parks. While many enjoy the luxury of being literally on top of the world on the Singapore Flyer, visitors to the Mount Faber Park can also enjoy a panoramic view of the Central Business District, in a natural setting atop look-out points. The view is particularly marvelous in the evening. Do not fret if you get tired or hungry as there are various souvenir kiosks and food outlets located around the park. Additionally, do not miss a photo opportunity with the lovely Arenga palms and Rhododendrons planted throughout the area.

If you are interested in the history of Singapore, look no further than atop Upper Faber Point, where you will be able to find a mural that interprets various scenes in the history of Singapore. From Mount Faber Park, you can also take a cable car down to Sentosa for more attractions and entertainment while enjoying the lovely view of the mainland island.

Another must-see at Mount Faber is the Jewel Box. It is Singapore's most iconic hill-top destination, providing a luxurious cable-car ride and sky-dining experience, as well has the most opulently-furnished fine dining restaurants. Retail outlets allow shopaholics to get their hands on exquisite local souvenirs. Visitors also should not miss the distinctive Soaring Angsana tree, encased in crystal to symbolise the tree-in-a-vase.
