The places that are offbeat are usually the places to be, and the colossal Jurong Lookout Tower is an ideal example of this. Providing a panoramic view of the vibrant district of Jurong, this viewing tower stands at a towering height of eighteen metres.
The enthralling seven-storeyed Jurong Tower has a vivid history. Built in the early 1970s, the expenditure to reach completion of the magnificent structure exceeded 133,200 SGD. This magnificent structure is found on the former site of the reputed Hill Top Japanese Restaurant, which was set up in such a way that the diners could enjoy the exquisite view of the sea. In the early years after its establishment, this dignified tower took pride in its reception hall which was fully air-conditioned and used to entertain important guests. Its gorgeous stained-glass ceiling remains intact and adds to the beauty of this curious relic.
Queen Elizabeth II of Britain, former Chinese Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping, and Spiro Agnew, the former Vice President of the United States are among the many dignitaries for whom this tower acted as host. To this day, the cherished relic boasts of a breathtaking view of the well-lit, bustling Jurong area at night.
