Great workout. Please take note of the following: 1. Please visit the Washroom before you set off (some clowns actually pee'ed over the fence) 2. Bring an umbrella, in case it rains. This is Singapore. The weather is as crazy as Kim Jong Un. 3. Water, water, water. Pointing to point 2. Yes, welcome to Singapore 4. Camers please. Lots... More

Southern Ridges hike consists of several trails including Canopy Walk (16 m above the ground), Forest Walk (25 m high), Mount Faber, famous Henderson Waves Bridge, and more. You can start it from either side (Marang Trail or Canopy walk) and finish at an MRT station. Just the walk itself can easily take two hours but you can also divert... More

We started the walk at Kent Ridge Park. The route (which we downloaded onto a mini ipad) was easy to follow. The canopy walkway was brilliant - saw lots of birds (eg drongo, white crested laughing thrush) then enjoyed the beautiful gardens/nursery at Hort Park. The Alexandra Arch bridge was spectacular as was the lengthy forest section along the elevated... More

For easiest access start this walk at Labrador Park MRT and go south. Much of the walk is on a suspended platform affording great views of the city and harbour and of the greenery below. You may spot skinks, various birds and even monkeys on this walk. Stop off at Spuds & Aprons on Mt Faber for a lovely lunch.... More

I hiked the southern ridges with a friend on a thursday at the end of October. I recommended downloading the route map onto your iPhone from nparks.gov.sg before heading off. This not only helps you avoid missing any of the sightseeing points along the route but also lets you know how much time each segment will take. Alternatively if you... More

Great park that makes for a fairly easy hike up and over the ridges for nice views of the forest and city. The view from Faber is wonderful. The Henderson Waves bridge is modern and funky. The forest walk is a cool steel walkway above the treeline on the walk down.

It's a stroll along the city fringe (it cuts across several areas of Singapore). The good thing is 1. it's free. 2. The sights are free. 3. The fresh air is free. 4. You have free company (birds, occasional squirrel). 5. It's quite elderly/wheelchair friendly for most parts because the bridges have slopes. Best to go early or late evening,... More

It was an amazing experience. A refuge from the commercial/urban appeal of the city and a place for wonderful panoramic sights and, off course, pictures. You are accompanied by birds singing throughout the walk and, because of the forest, it may be the freshest area of whole Singapore. And the price is... wait for it... ZERO. That is right, it...
