  • The walk was fantastic with diverse vegetation and excellent walking paths. You are in the middle of the forest with a city around you everywhere you look. Strangely, you do not hear the city. Brillia...  more »
  • More a series of short walks as opposed to a long continuous hike. Some parts were very impressive and seemed surrounded in nature, while other times you pass through crowded parks or walk along a roa...  more »
  • We did to and from. Started our walk from Harbour Front train station to the Kent ridge side and back... Dead tired after that but completely worth it. So many things to see and greens...  more »

  • A long walk that is definitely not advisable to go visit under the afternoon sun, as there is no roof at all until you reach the very end. The long walk itself is fine, but it would be nice if they add more vending machine selling drinks.
  • 1. Nature trail right inside the city. 2. Multiple exits to main roads. 3. Slip free paths. 4. Paths get illuminated in evening, dark. 5. Gradient is low. So going up will test your heart and lungs but is still easy on knees. 6. Lots of spots of shutterbugs.
  • Interesting walkway and you get a chance to see different wildlife in the forest. Also the skyscrapers in the surrounding area create some neat landscapes to take photos of.
  • The nature trail at its best. This place is well maintained without affecting the beauty of the nature. The best time to visit this place is during sunset. Also the night walk is so wonderful with the led lights. If you want a sudden escape from the city life, i would recommend this place. Lots of nature to sink into.
  • I personally love the hike from harbourfront station up to henderson waves bridge only. We were not able to finish the whole walk because it's already late and is still a long walk. The bridge lit at exactly 7pm but since the sun was not yet setting we still waited around 7:30pm to take photos of the henderson waves with the light. Nice place just to relax, hang out or even have a good work out. Even though under the bridge is a city road, the place is still serene with cool wind.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
