I'm a Singaporean and we are sometimes bored by the endless number of malls and lack of scenery there are here. But the Southern Ridges is an amazing walk that can be done in half a day. I usually start from Mt faber (Harbourfront MRT) then walk follow the signs. You will pass by the Henderson Waves, Forest Walk, Alexandra... More

The downtown of Singapore can be overwhelming as the buildings are so gigantic and so plentiful. The perfect antidote is the Southern Ridges walk. You get terrific views and nature in abundance, grasses, forests, and scenic views of the city and the waterfront of Sentosa, all just minutes from major roads and transit. Don't miss this view of a wonderful... More

What a great idea to have a trail like this in the middle of the city - Retrospectively, we would recommend to start from Mount Faber, go down to Henderson waves bridge and down the trail to Alexandra road - A MUST do when in Singapore and this is for free!!!

I'm a Singaporean but I've only done this a few weeks before. More people, even locals, need to do this! Here's how I did my walk: Get to Harbour Front MRT exit D, walk to Seah Im Food Centre and locate Marang Road along the stretch. It leads you to the steps and that's where you start towards Mount Faber.... More

This trail provided some amazing photo opportunities. Each section of the trail was different and unique. I loved how they had descriptions and pictures of the wildlife you can see along the way. The sections with the workout equipment was pretty cool too. I will say that the Henderson Waves looks much better in pictures than when you're actually on... More

We only had so much time in Singapore (5 nights) and this walk was definitely on my list. Unfortunately we didn't get there until afternoon and decided to do it at the last minute when we changed our mind about taking the cable car to Sentosa and took it to Mt. Faber instead. It's an easy walk downhill to the... More

The southern ridges were easily accessible with the MRT, station Habourfront. These natural parks are very well laid out and very well maintained. There we made a nice hike. There were great views of Sentosa Island and the harbor. Very nice was the bridge Henderson Waves.

The Sourthern Ridges are a must see when in Singapore. The nature is stunning and the walkways are easy and accessible for all. Highlights for me were the Canopy walk, the Forest Walk and the stunningly beautiful architecture of the Henderson Waves. We started out at Mount Faber and ended our journey at the Canopy walk. In distance not so... More

We were astounded by the rugged beauty of our hike in the southern ridges, We had no idea Singapore, that quintessentially urban place yet retained within its city limits so much seemingly pristine nature.

Nice short escape from the city. Ideal place for a evening stroll and breathe in some fresh air. Should start the walk from Alexandra park instead of Mt Faber.. its much better!!!
