  • I got off the bus in front of HortPark and walked through Mount Faber Station to Harbourfront Stn. I think the east half of the course, but it was about two hours walk slowly. On the way, the sidewalk is maintained, and the forest walk seems to be walking in the forest, it is liberated from the hustle and bustle of the city, it hears various birds ' cries, the squirrel jumps, and the big Ant which has changed was seen. The explanation board is also substantial. On the way, there is a huge footbridge and you can hope for a cruise ship in the distance. It was a good exercise.

Message from Singapore Tourism Board
A trek along The Southern Ridges brings visitors to five other parks - Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and the Labrador Nature Reserve. Spread over 10km of green and open spaces, a hike through The Southern Ridges takes visitors to five local parks which are linked by park connectors. As part of the journey, travellers cross bridges through the Adinandra Belukar, a distinct secondary forest, and can observe a variety of birds. Henderson Waves is another highlight of the walk. Its Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge is a marvel during nightfall - it is illuminated with LED lighting. Trekkers can enjoy panoramic views of lush greenery, sights and sounds of wildlife.
