Bukit BatokFree: All time

Also known as Little Guilin or Xiao Guilin among the locals, this park looks similar to that of Guilin in China – a granite rock sitting within a lake. Two dome shaped shelters give you a fantastic view of the tranquil lake. The towering rock cliffs make a majestic backdrop to the large lake. The park is beautifully landscaped so that you can walk along the banks of the lake.  Besides being used for exercise and walks, the town park has also been used as a stage for Chinese opera, dance and music performances such as the Heroine of the Water Margin. The park has also been suggested as an alternative destination for tourists wishing to see a different side of Singapore.
