This is a memorial to those killed at war. It’s located in the downtown area of Singapore near the JW Marriott. It’s worth stopping by to read up on the war and its significance. The park is clean and welcoming.

We stopped to admire this majestic memorial on our first night in town. It is lovely, lit up in the evening. Each of the common local languages are represented on the memorial. There are benches nearby from which you may sit and admire or reminisce.

This is a somber monument located in the middle of a green park. While the context of the memorial is sad, many locals use the park for picnics, other than paying their respects.

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo
