Kent Ridge Park & Reflections At Bukit Chandu is a nature park and World War II memorial site. The actual park size is quite large, but the attractions are grouped in only a few points. Plus, there are several steep hills in the area. Exploring the entirety of Kent Ridge Park & Reflections At Bukit Chandu will require a good deal of stamina.

There isn't much to do at the main Kent Ridge Park, beyond working out at the fitness corners and viewing the Battle For Pasir Panjang Memorial. The best thing here would be the view from Lookout Point, of the harbour.

Reflections At Bukit Chandu is a museum dedicated to remembering the Japanese invasion of Singapore during World War II, in particular, the battles fought at Pasir Panjang and Bukit Chandu, as well as the Malay regiments that defended it.

I particularly liked the Windows Of Memories, for the heart warming vignettes of the battle, and its consequences. Generally, it's best to have a guide show you around, and explain the significance of each exhibit.

If you're planning a visit, do note that while Kent Ridge Park is free, admission to Reflections At Bukit Chandu costs $2, and allocate between 1 to 2 hours for viewing.
