Park Hotel Alexandra
Connected to Alexandra Central Mall right off Alexandra Road, the Park Hotel Alexandra is an elegant 4-star hotel bringing chilled vibes to the area of Alexandra.
The 7th floor of the hotel is particularly attractive for Al Fresco dining and evening cocktails at AquaLuna restaurant, which brings rooftop elegance and wood-fire oven pizzas without the crazy prices of the CBD.
Restaurant Stew Küche has delighted locals and visitors at Park Hotel Alexandra with a unique experience of Bavarian cuisine married with local experiences in a kopitiam setting.
The eatery provides a great selection of German brewed lagers and beers, which pairs fantastically with its winner pork knuckle dish.
Haw Par Villa
Haw Paw Villa is not your most conventional park, in fact with its hellish landscapes and demonic statues, it may seem more like a haunted park intending to scare visitors away.
However, the eclectic park is a unique representation of Asian culture, folklore, philosophy, and religion- the last of its kind in the world.
Aptly named the Ten Courts of Hell, Haw Par Villa’s gone through many management shifts since its birth in 1937 under the Brothers Aw.
Since then, the park has undergone a few facelifts making it the ghastly depictions something worth seeing for visitors every year and will hopefully continue to grow in popularity without the threat of closing with their new attraction Hell’s Museum coming soon.
