The journey begins with a gentle stroll through Mount Faber Park to the Mural Wall, home of 16 copper-tooled murals depicting the rise of Singapore from her humble roots as a fishing village to the economic powerhouse she is today.

Pay a visit to the highest Merlion in Singapore, standing at three metres tall at the highest point of Mount Faber. Learn more about the history of this mystical icon of Singapore and don’t forget to get a photo with it! Towering over the summit of Mount Faber stands a Rain Tree planted in 1971 by Dr Goh Keng Swee, Singapore’s second Deputy Prime Minister, to launch Singapore’s first-ever Tree Planting Day. The tree serves as a reminder of our nation’s commitment to conserving the natural environment and making Singapore a tropical garden city.
Take in the unparalleled views of the city, Keppel Harbour, and the Southern islands while standing at the Peak of Faber Point. In a beautiful contrast of natural landscape and modern metropolis, the spreading view is a reminder of how far Singapore has come. The panoramic vistas make for an ideal selfie spot, so get ready to smile!
Head back over to Faber Peak Singapore and ring Poland’s Bells of Happiness with your loved ones for “Double Happiness”, believed to bless those who ring them with joy and an everlasting blissful future.
