Chinese Garden (裕华园)

After visiting the Jurong Lake Park in the morning, I headed back home for a lunch break. Then, I continued my exploration in Chinese Garden (裕华园).


West Entrance to Chinese Garden (from Jurong Lake Park)

In the past, when I was still a child, this was a popular place during the mid-autumn festival. I vaguely remember that my family came here to admire the colourful lighted lanterns at night many years ago. It was a beautiful place (although it was very crowded too).

It's hard to tell from the picture that these structures along the bridge railings have dragons craved on them.
