“A Long Nature Walk In Singapore”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

An excellent nature walk in the midle of a busy city state. Start at Pasir Panjang Hill car park, as the entrance from the main road is very steep arrive by a taxi to one of the hill carparks to avoid the steepest part of the walk. You need to be in good shape to walk in from the main road to the car park area. Once you get started on the trail it can take 3 hours to walk all the way to Harbour Front where there is the large shopping centre with food and drink avaialble. Take a small back pack with umbrellas, small snacks and plenty of water. Wear clothes for a hot day of walking and comfortable flat shoes for walking uphill and climbing stairways. It is not an easy walk but well worth the effort to see some superb views and camera opportunities. Beware of the Monkeys on the elavated forest walkway, they sit on the handrail minding their own business but a paper or plastic bag or anything that could contain food is up for being snatched and they are not easily put off. So put food packages and snacks out of sight and calmly walk by them, they wont pay you any attention if there is nothing to eat in sight. If you want an interesting long nature walk in the morning or late afternoon with the trail ending by the sea this is it. Can be busy with locals out for a family walk at weekends but never crowded.

“Average Nature Walk”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

The southern ridges offered variety, From the forest walk to Henderson waves everything was cool but slightly rundown.

Not a bad way to send the day. That being said its we hear the Alexandra Arch is nice when lit up at night.

“Like a bird in the trees”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

A unique experience for nature lovers and family. Despite the chages of levels, the footbridge is accessible to all. A great journey would start at Hortpark and finish in Mount Faber. On the way, scenic view from the iconic Henderson Waves. Beware of daring monkey, just ignore them and don't show food on your way.
