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...

I wanted my colleagues to know you could actually walk for an hour or so in Singapore and not hit a shopping mall, so I took them out on the Southern Ridges walk. Start early (before it gets too hot) and start at The Jewel Box of you want a basically downhill journey. It's well marked, relatively quiet and features... More

I walked 3.5 hrs from Kent Ridge to Mt. Faber area and down to Harbourfront MRT. It's a stunning walk in some parts and I wandered slowly now and then. A couple of tips: Start early in the day. I arrived around 8:30am. Bring lots of water...there are a couple of watering holes along the way. Bring snacks too. Also,... More

We recently spent a day walking the paths of the Southern Ridges - it was great. We started from the Harbourfront station (the path starts right out the front of the station exit) and we walked up Faber Hill and over to the interesting bridges and skyline paths. We spent the entire day on the hike. The only problem was... More

A nice patch of wilderness in the city. Cool styles of architecture, a bit confusing to navigate at times but brilliant and fun!

With the hubby and 4 year old son, start our journey from Telok Blangah Hill car park to Mt Faber. Great walk and green scenery.

We started from Harbourfront MRT and managed to reach as far as Kent Ridge Park and what an enjoyable walk is was. You can do it at your own pace and there was points where you could leave the trail if you found it too much. I would suggest you go armed with sun cream, hat and a bottle of... More
