World War II Bunker – Fort Canning Park
Hotel Innotel is blessed with the existence of the most historic place of Singapore, the Fort Canning Park as its backyard. It would be a waste not to visit this place so rich in World War II history when it’s just 5-minute walk from hotel backdoor.
Visitors can marvel at the massive Battle Box, an underground military bunker that was used by the British as a command center during World War II. The park itself is also full of lush greenery, generous green lawns, tall trees and clean air that makes for a good healthy morning walk.
Orchard Road – Champ Elysees of Singapore
Orchard Road is the world famous shopping boulevard lined with more than 20 iconic shopping malls. The malls are best explored on foot from Innotel Hotel or if you are rushed for time, just hop onto the train and get out at Orchard (NS22) or Somerset (NS23) MRT stations for easy access to these popular malls.
The Paragon shopping center is one of the most exquisite shopping destinations on Orchard Road. Paragon specializes in luxury shopping and big brands, such as Gucci, Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, Prada, or Hermes, just to name a few.
The H&M Singapore flagship store is the first of its kind in Southeast Asia, and it officially opened its doors in 2011. There are three levels of shopping space for men, women and children, spread over 30,000 sq. ft. This Swedish brand is well-known for its quality clothing at affordable prices, so make sure not to miss this one.
Knightsbridge is a new shopping venue on the map of Orchard Road, which eye-catching building with an astonishing glass facade makes the visit worth on its own. There are numerous flagship stores in Knightsbridge shopping center, such as the famous American brand of Abercrombie & Fitch, the biggest Topshop boutique in Asia, Tommy Hilfiger and Brooks Brothers.
Where to Get Food and Beer
The PapaMia bistro in Innotel Hotel serves tasty local delights like Kaya Toast, Curry Chicken, Nasi Lemak and authentic Peranakan cuisine.
If local cuisine doesn’t excite you, then the signature Fish and Chips from “Fish & Co”, a Mediterranean casual dining restaurant will definitely appeal to you. Fish & Co restaurant is located right outside Innotel Hotel, in The Glass House, a standalone see-through glass building.
For more variety like Japanese, French, Hong Kong and Thai cuisine, you just need to cross Penang Road and head for restaurants inside Plaza Singapura mall. You can find a 24-hour Starbucks and fast food joints like McDonald’s, KFC and Burger King in this shopping center as well.
Nothing beats having chilled beer to wind down the day in hot and humid Singapore. The best place to enjoy local brewed Tiger Beer and do people watching on Orchard Road is KPO, a 2-storey pub located further down on Penang Road.
Besides good beer and cozy ambiance, KPO’s specialty fried chicken and pork collar also makes a good beer snack for sharing with friends. KPO is on the left-side of Hotel Innotel and a short 7-minute walk away.
