Shenton Way is full of office buildings – and OUE Downtown 2 is one of them but take a walk around and you will find many retail shops and hip eateries in the building. One of the best areas in the building is the outdoor garden on the fourth floor. The soothing fountain and lush plants and trees make you forget that you're in the middle of the CBD.
Besides impressive skyscrapers, the 'city life' and air-conditioned shopping malls, there's also plenty of other things in Singapore to celebrate. We're thinking of something more green, closer to the ground – and sans aircon. While we've got hiking trails, farms and beautiful parks at every corner, there are also hidden pockets of green everywhere – including within the bustling city. If you know where to look, there’s always space to take a breather wherever you may be.
