Sunday, 23 July 2006

Last Sunday, after church, we went to Bukit Chandu [meaning is *OPIUM HILL*, don't know why...anybody know?), somewhere near Pasir Panjang, the other side of Kent Ridge Park.
We did not go into the exhibition area, just at the outer area. For the photo, please click here Photo at Bukit Chandu, Outer Park
The location is at 31K Pepys Road, Singapore 118458
Opening Hours: 9am - 5pm, Tuesday - Sunday (so.. don't go there on Monday.... you will only can be at the car park... but is a nice place for outing and discussion, quiet and shady place..)

How to get there??
By Car/Taxi: A quick 30-minute drive from the city, take AYE and exit at Buona Vista South until you arrive at Pasir Panjang Road. Turn left and turn left again at the 5th junction to enter Pepys Road. Parking is free.

By SBS/TIBS: Alight in front of Pasir Panjang Neighbourhood Police Post (109A Pasir Panjang Road) using the following services from the following locations:
From HarbourFront Centre - SBS 10, 30, 143 and TIBS 188

The entrance fee is S$2.00 for adults.. but is free during certain public holiday (Hari Raya, Deepavaly, X-mas, New Year, 3rd day of Chinese New Year).

From Bukit Chandu, since still early, we continue our journey to Science Centre at Jurong East. Again, we did not go into the exhibition area, just at the outer court.

There is a new attraction (for us is new.... since we never come to this place for almost 3 years), is the Water Works. You can go into this area if you buy the entrance ticket to see the exhibition area. We did not go in, but this area can be seen from outside as shown in the photo here:

Hi there, it's called Bukit Chandu because there used to be an opium factory at the base of the hill.
