This is the first part of the Southern Ridges trail and being relatively difficult to reach is less crowded that the sections around Mount Faber - there are couple of large ponds at the western start and the wood at the top of the hill...More

Kent Ridge Park is at the start of the Southern Ridges and is one of the quieter and more peaceful parks for walking in. In the middle of the day it can get very hot, but this means there aren't too many people about. Nice...More

The park sits on top of a hill with beautiful views over the harbour. Unfortunately the canopy walk that connects the park to Hort Park and the Southern ridges is closed for renovations until the end of March 2018. There is an alternate access through...More

Best green space in Singapore? (5 Replies)
One of the things I love about SG is the green parks and gardens, as well as the nature reserves. There are so many, and I think I've been to most of them now, but I was wondering what's the favourite of yours. Fort Canning Park? Mount Faber Park? Kent Ridge Park? Macritchie? Bukit Timah? East Coast Park?

While more obviously landscaped than many, the Botanic Gardens are still my green space of Singapore. I would be happy to spend time in any or all of the parks and reserves above, but the Botanic Garden has a bit too much attachment to me not to be top of my list.

WWII Sites & Tiger Balm Gardens (16 Replies)
Hi Trip Advisors Probably a long post (but basically 2 questions)...but I value your experience, knowledge and expertise and hope you will not be offended or annoyed. On Good Friday my hubby and I fly to Singapore for a delayed special anniversary trip (5 nights) . Counting the days now! I am taking into account the 2 Public Holidays that factor in this trip (3 in Aus due to ANZAC Day) and the possible restrictions this may entail. We have seen many of the popular sites on...More

I'll answer the first bit. Yes Taxi is the easiest way to get there, and you should be able to hail a taxi after (or just phone ans one will there to pick you up in 5min). Or its a short bus journey back to VivoCity/HarbourFront which has a MRT station. The exihbits at the Tiger Balm Garden have chaged little (the Gorilla has had its sharp canine teeth filed back). It did under go a bit of a transformation in the 90's with boat rides but most of that has been removed now. There are no...More

Want to Walk the Southern Ridges, but Have a Few Questions (15 Replies)
Hello, I'll be traveling to Singapore, and one thing I'd like to do is walk the Southern Ridges. In doing some research, I have some questions: 1) I'm thinking of doing this on the day I fly out of Singapore. My flight is at 6:30PM, and I'll probably head over to the airport in the early afternoon (because in addition to checking in, I want to stroll around Changi Airport, because I've heard really good things about it). Which means I'd want to do this Southern Ridges walk early (as...More

Thanks Avanti50 and blitzonic. I ask about the sunrise time because I want to be able to see where I'm going. And I ask about the animals because from what I read, there's actually some monkeys there, which would be cool to see, but I'm not sure what other animals that could potentially be dangerous are out there, especially in the dark when I can't see them. In both your posts, you describe how you exited out the west side of this walk, but for me, I'm doing the opposite and going to...More
