Henderson Waves, Singapore

(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Find yourself in line with the city's lush jungle canopies with a walk along Henderson Waves. This impressive architectural feat features a bridge designed to resemble an undulating wave. At 36 m (118 ft) above ground, the bridge is the tallest in the country and provides a vantage point for peering out over the green belt below. The bridge curves and twists over the 274 m (899 ft) of its length, rising and falling to mimic an actual wave. Benches and resting spots are scattered throughout and you'll find hand rails where required, making the bridge accessible for all.

  • We spent ages here taking some great photos of the bridge and the views from either side. Very very beautiful and our favorite part of the Southern Ridges walk!  more »
  • This and the Southern Ridges was by far our favorite thing in Singapore. It is so cool to walk in the jungle with sky scrapers poking out and the walkway is gorgeous.  more »

  • We walked from Reflections at Bukit Chandu (also well worth visiting) to the cable car station at Faber Peak - the walkway is well maintained and reasonably easy walking, with the main barrier being the heat. Distance is not too bad and the climb is by switchback sections of walkway over the forest. It was not as shady as I had anticipated, so be prepared for lots of sun. Lovely views over Singapore as well.
  • Singapore has plenty of run routes, and one of them takes you past the Henderson Waves, an interesting piece of architecture nestled in Mount Faber Park. When you reach the waves itself, you can take peak out into the sea and appreciate the view of Singapore's port, Sentosa, Keppel Island, etc. You can also see the uniquely shaped apartment buildings rising up from the ground like a beacon. Pretty stunning sight.
  • Great place to visit. Require some trekking, but worth the experience. Great place for wedding photoshoot too, be prepared to run into brides- and bridegrooms-to-be.
  • Nice place to visit, also good place for jogging.... need some trekking but you will see a wonderful view from this place
  • You can choose to take the forest trail or canopy walk up towards Henderson Wave (and beyond). Great view on both sides once you reach and multiple shaded resting points.
