Compared to other natural sites in Singapore, Southern Ridges seems too artificial. Go to MacRitchie's Reservoir or the Botanical Garden instead. The views of the city were unimpressive in daytime.

Like the botanical garden it's a nice place to forget the city and spend some time in the nature. From some parts you have a fairly good view on the city.

This walk takes you into what remains of the jungle. Its a great walk up Mount Faber, along Henderson Bridge and onwards over the tree top walk to Alexander Road. If you continue down Alexander Road you can pick up the board walk by Labrador MRT to Labrador Park to your right or left continuing along the board walk past... More

Walked this 10km trail beginning from Harbourfront MRT station. The scenery is very nice, considering you are downtown Singapore. Quite a bit of climbing involved. Not for people who are out of shape. Passes through three different park areas. Directional signs toward the far end are difficult to follow. And had some trouble finding an MRT station at the opposite... More

It starts from Alexandra Arch Bridge and continues few kilometres all the way to Mt.Faber(Cable Car Station). Wear comfy shoes and bring lots of water with you. On the way you see amazing views, so definitely a must visit, if you are even in decent shape. There were "beware of monkeys" signs, but we didn't see any

we took the marang trail that starts from the harbourfront station through mount faber park - this can be a taxing albeit beautiful walk as you walk up the hundereds of steps to mount faber trail that leads to the famous Henderson waves bridge. This is a uniquely designed bridge connecting mount faber park to telok blangah park above Henderson... More

This trek is suitable for children and the elderly as it's made up of just slopes. We were impressed how they built it with all that metal structures. It was pure serenity standing on the ridges and enjoying the forest views, right in the middle of lots of trees. One of the best and easy ways to enjoy the greenery... More
