Singaporetourismmap: Carmine Point Roaming - Clarke Quay Mrt - Hong Lim Commons

My final Red Dot roaming took me to Clarke Quay MRT as well as Hong Lim park.  Hong Lim common is correct (as I discovered) exterior Clarke Quay MRT station as well as is virtually famous for existence the domicile of Singapore's Speakers Corner.  The common was genuinely the kickoff privately-owned world garden inwards Singapore created past times Hokkien businessman, Cheang Hong Lim who bought the field inwards 1876.  It was originally called Dunman's Green later the kickoff Superintendent of police, Thomas Dunman but the shout out was changed inwards 1876 when Cheang Hong Lim donated the field for the garden.  Its subsequent history includes existence used every bit a venue for storytelling during the Japanese occupation, every bit a cricket solid soil for the Singapore Chinese Recreation Club as well as the Singapore Cricket Club inwards the 1950s as well as 1960s, every bit a venue for Chinese operas inwards the 1960s as well as 1970s as well as every bit a venue for many early on political rallies. 

As I mentioned though for me, at least, it is virtually famous for existence the venue of Speakers Corner which it was officially designated every bit inwards 2000.  I wasn't expecting much from my view if I'm honest, I was precisely curious every bit I'd non been at that spot but I was nevertheless underwhelmed past times it when I genuinely did larn there.  It is merely precisely an expanse inwards the common amongst a sign to say y'all what it is as well as a dissever 1 advising on the regulations of speaking publicly there.  I don't know what I was expecting as well as I suppose at that spot isn't much to a greater extent than that could hold upward pose at that spot but nonetheless I was a fleck disappointed.  I've never visited Speakers Corner inwards Hyde common as well as then can't compare the 2 sadly.

Ultimately the architecture of the buildings surrounding the common interested me to a greater extent than as well as my view was entirely a brief one.  The common seems a dainty house to become on your luncheon pause if y'all desire to larn precisely about fresh air as well as at that spot is a cafe inwards the common which looked pleasant for low-cal refreshments (I didn't become - I believe this cafe has since shut down) but I'm non certain I'll hold upward rushing dorsum to pass to a greater extent than fourth dimension at that spot whatsoever fourth dimension soon.

If y'all missed whatsoever of the previous Red Dot Roaming series, banking concern tally them out here.

Clarke Quay MRT is on the North East draw (NE5).
