Fodor's Review

Also known as Hong Lim Park, this spot was declared a "free speech zone" by the government in 2001. It looks like nothing more than a small patch of grass, but from 7 am to 7 pm on some days, you may be able to catch carefully crafted words and speeches. Those who wish to speak need to register with the police at the park station. This was intended as a place for people to express their opinions freely, but it hasn't been very successful. You can't address religious or racial issues, and having to register means that your presence has been noted.
