As much as I love the city life, large crowds and tons of people is not something I enjoy and when possible, I either avoid it or spend as short a time as possible within it. (You wonder how I lived in Hong Kong for 6.5 years haha!)
Something I love to do, especially when I’m enjoying some me time, is constantly seek out quieter places or a cozy corner somewhere within a crowded area or mall. I’ve been doing this since my Hong Kong days and it continues today in Singapore. It’s the best. :)
Last year, my sister brought me to Yunnan Garden, an amazing and peaceful park located in the beautiful NTU campus in Jurong West. I’ve added it to my list of favourite places in Singapore and it’s absolutely perfect for some quiet and rest, especially if you manage to visit during weekdays or during term breaks. :)
The garden opened in February 2020 and I think by now, much more people know about it thanks to social media, which is a great thing, since something so lovely should be shared! You can read more about Yunnan Garden here.
Here are some favourite photos I took of the place and if you’re looking for a place to slow down or to explore, definitely head West and give this place a visit. :)
