The next time hunger pangs strike while you're shopping in town, skip the crowded cafes in the malls and head for Dhoby Ghaut Green instead. This one-year-old park, located just above the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, is a welcome oasis in the busy commercial area. Weary shoppers find this a perfect spot to rest their tired feet in the quietness of the park. We were there for a different reason - to dine at the popular Sakura International Buffet Restaurant, situated in the middle of Dhoby Ghaut Green.
Bedok Jetty, a popular angling spot, is but a short jaunt away from the city centre and its accompanying rat race. Located right in the midst of bustling East Coast Park, it has still preserved a unique brand of serenity.
