We've visited Singapore many times so decided to do something different this time; we walked through the Southern Ridges to Mount Faber Park. We started at the Kent Ridge Canopy walkway, continueing through the Hortpark across the Alexandra Arches, through Telok Blangah park across the Henderson Waves, and through Mount Faber park to the cable car.

This offers a good hike for those who want to be close to nature. It connects several parks in Western Singapore together, and walking from end to end will take about 3 hours. The trial is suspended high above the roads at some points, which affords you a great view of Singapore's Southern Coastline and surrounding neighborhoods. However, you need... More

We really enjoyed our walk around the Southern Ridges. It provides great views of both the strait & the city. We didn't want to go for a long walk so we caught a taxi to Mount Faber peak (where the cable car ends) and walked from there to the Henderson Wave bridge. It's all downhill, so an easy walk. We...

This is a great place for nature lovers but I'd probably not recommend it for first-time travelers to Singapore unless you love outdoor walking.

Worth going to if you're in town for long enough. Some great views of the city and a great place to escape the urban jungle. Bring a long lens for the views.

Fantastic nature walk on the top of Mt Faber. Birds, even monkeys and surrounded by incredible vegetation. Peaceful, serene and not a long walk at all, but a late afternoon or earlier morning walk would be good times of the day to enjoy this.

Began the walk from Harbour Front MRT station Exit D, which leads to Marang Trail according to the signboard. There are quite some climbing involved at the beginning, but the view on top is awesome. Once you reach the top, there is just a short distance to the cable car station. It is alright to spend some good time there... More

We did what other reviewers suggested and took a taxi to Mt. Faber as the weather was very warm and humid. There is a cafe here for a cooling drink before you explore this area. You can enjoy the view of the harbour and city and see the bridge road to Sentosa Island. This nature reserve was such a relaxing... More

Singapore is putting much efforts into preserving its forest and make the city as green as possible. The Southern Ridges one of the results of that strategy. The Southern Ridges trail consists of 4 parks stretching across the western half of Singapore, with bridges allowing pedestrians to cross busy highways. Several parts of the trail are suspended high above the... More

There is not a lot of places in the world where you can commune with nature right in the city without having to worry about safety. The Singapore government (we are a big fan) really put a lot of planning (foresight) and resources to bring city living to a different level by providing easy access to green spaces. It's so...
