We took bus and drop off at Clarke Quay Station.
Walk straight along the road and you should see a pedestrian bridge ahead.
Cross the road using the pedestrian bridge and you've reached Fort Canning Park.

我们乘坐巴士,在Clarke Quay巴士站下车。
沿着路旁直走下去就会看到人行天桥。
跟着人行天桥跨过大马路,就直接抵达了富康宁公园。

We were told lucky that weather turns chilly just a night before we arrived.
Previously the weather was chili hot and it would be impossible for us to do hiking if so.

朋友说我们很幸运,因为天气昨天刚转凉。
据说之前的天气特别的炎热。要是天气一样那么热,我们也无法爬山了。

"Did you know: The fort was built in 1859 but it has since been demolished. (source)"


Besides that, there is an almost-magical place, a recent hotspot for photo shooting.
Have you heard of the "spiral staircase"?

除此之外,还有一个很神秘的地方,特别适合来拍网红照装逼(呵呵)。
你可曾听说有个“旋转阶梯”?

To get the full view of the chimney, you might need the help of wide lens.
In our case, we're using Huawei Nova 3i.
Photo taking tip: Set your camera as low as to the ground.

如过想要拍完整口井,你得需要用上wide lens(扩大镜)。
像我们只是拍拍玩的,我们用的是华为Nova 3i
拍照小贴士:把你的相机贴近地面往上拍。

Does it looks magical to you? Feeling like walking into Alice Wonderland?
No wonder it attracts people from all around the world. Behind the scene, there are people lining up to get photo shooted.

是不是看起来很梦幻、很像走入仙境?
难怪世界各地很多人慕名而来。你看看多少人在等着拍照。:p

It really requires some effort and courage to jump up to the platform / handrail.
After all, it's 1-storey above ground. (Ask a friend to assist you if you afraid of height.)
Worth it when the photos came out nice.

要跳上去阶梯的扶手那一瞬间的确需要勇气。
毕竟是一层楼高。(惧高的朋友务必要同行的人扶你。)
可是当你看到照片拍出来漂亮,一切都值得了。哈哈哈!
