If it is the same Padang as when I visited in the 80's and lived there in the 90's, it will have the old cricket club at the top. OK it is just an open field. However if you are walking down from Raffles Hotel,...More

It's just an open field in the middle of the city centre. There's not much things to be seen here unless there were some celebration or other programs held at the field.

If you know Singapore's weather, then there's no reason to be here unless there're events going on. It's just an open field with nothing.
