This is a walk that I would recommend to anyone visiting Singapore. Catch the MRT to harbourfront and cross the road to find the steps that will take you to the ridge. This is the hardest part of the walk and if you don't want to walk the steps you could catch a cab. Once at the top of the... More

A thoughtful and well designed walking route across the southern tip of Singapore, the Southern Ridges provide a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of day to day Singapore. We started from Vivo City - if you want to avoid the first 15 minutes of uphill steps from this location you could easily take a taxi or cable car... More

Singapore residents might appreciate this more than tourists, but it is excellent an walk/hike with views of Singapore from the few peaks near Sentosa island. The peaks are connected by pedestrian bridges in different designs that are interesting in themselves. Start at Mount Faber and end at HortPark or vice versa, best at dusk between 6 and 7.30pm. Fit walkers... More

This is a walk not to be missed. It is not strenuous. Paths are nice and easy but bring lots of water and a hat as it gets very hot. The bridges are rally cool. You are walking on top if the trees along the mountain. Very impressive all the work they have done on creating this very interesting walk... More

This was accessed from Harbor front on a bus 96 or 166 travelling towards S Jain ( where there is a school of global business management). There are at least 2 directions in which to walk from here, and best broken into 2 days. You can head inland on the raised walkways or walk under the walkway on a track... More

This is a wonderful experience. A marvellous well maintained attraction which the Singapore parks department should be proud of. Specimen trees and excellent views of the harbour. Yet again this walk will recharge your batteries and allow you a relaxing time away from the traffic. A good pair of comfortable shoes is advisable, and you must have a reasonable level... More

I'm afraid of heights, so don't ask why I went for this. The trail itself is a treetop walk and it was awesome as it felt like you were walking in the air. Seriously, I don't know how to put this but the experience is amazing as we're so high up. Just don't look down. That's the only horrible part.

It's a place where I lived at as a child and I'm so glad they decided to enhance the park instead of constructing houses on it. There is a wild beauty to this area that is missing in the more centrally-located parks like Botanic Gardens and Gardens by the Bay. Less people, more foliage, more silence. The bridges make for...

It really isn't very exciting - unless you don't get out into the country much ;-) It's a walk, but nothing more than that... Henderson Wave bridge is worth seeing if you are there, but we wouldn't recommend you go out of your way to see it - it's just a bridge ;-) Our recommendation would be not to waste... More

As I didn't fancy spending my few hours down time shopping on my business trip, I chose to do this on my one day off and I'm glad that I did. What a fantastic, and free, way to see a different side of Singapore. The slight confusion for some is that this is, in fact, a series of connected walks... More
