Great walk in the morning

It is a great walk for Singapore island . The walk is easy and pretty much cooling if you go early. Advisable to do this either early morning or evening timing .

If you love nature, it's a must see for you. Scenic trails through forest give rest to your mind and are a great physical exercise still within city. Wear comfortable shoes and plan to give enough time to enjoy this treasure.

We went in Jan. and it is supposed to be the dry season. It rained almost the entire time and it was quite humid. Very long walks but beautiful. You can start and stop along the path, neaning you can make it as long or short as you want. I think there may be bus tours that go through the... More

As Long as you don't get caught in a tropical rainstorm this is a fantastic walk, varying routes - 30minute to 3 hours walks, not so much wildlife in view but treetops are fantastic. Cooler. Any many things of vegetation interest on route

This amazing trail leads you through four different parks. I started in the west (Kent Ridge MRT) and did the whole tour: Kent Ridge park - Hort park - Telok Blangah Hill park - Mount Faber park. From there you can exit near Vivocity shopping mall (HarbourFront MRT). It's a long and strenuous hike, roughly 30'000 steps involved, so pack... More

We walked the full length and did the loop at Alexander bridge down to the "mangrove" and Labrador reserve and back up to the bridge. Had picnic by the sea. Only 4K extra. Had a good day five hours slow walking to keep cooler and take photos. Not very peaceful though, more an urban trail with greenery, Horst park being... More

The Southern Ridges is a whole walking trail stretching from Kent Ridge Park to Mount Faber, over 2 pedestrian bridges namely the Alexander Arch and the Henderson Waves. The latter is a beautiful undulating boardwalk bridge sloping gently from one end to the other, whereas the other pales in comparison. The walk amongst the tree tops is along the Forest... More

We did this walk sort of backwards, so that we ended up at Mount Faber. This meant we expended a bit more energy, but it was still an easy walk. The canopy walk and Henderson Waves are incredible, and the view at the top of Mount Faber is not to be missed! I would advise doing the walk this way... More

Started out from the science park and walked though Hort Park, the bridge offering views of that condo with flats like boxes as well as the colonial bungalows, the beautiful Alexandria Waves (love it), and enjoyed the view of the sea. Like ending up at Vivo City via Mount Faber. Great walk!

Not a jungle trek but you'd need a good amount of energy to walk and explore all of the surrounding are as the walk itself is very long and lead to all directions. You get to hear monkeys and if lucky, see some. Take insect repellent on hot days and lots of drinking water.
