A seamless expanse of green open spaces, the Southern Ridges is a 10-km trail that offers a unique outdoor experience in the southwest of Singapore. From the many architecturally striking bridges and walkways, trekkers can enjoy a panoramic view of the verdant greenery in the three parks and one nature reserve that make up the Southern Ridges – the lush hilly parks of Mount Faber, Telok Blangah Hill and Kent Ridge, and the rich flora and fauna of Labrador Nature Reserve. Themed gardens in HortPark featuring the latest in garden and landscape designs will satisfy any gardening enthusiast or interest a curious trekker. Replace the sounds of the hustle and bustle of city life with the symphony of insects and birds, and explore one of Singapore’s most exciting recreational destinations.

Comments

An amazing walk with heaps of lookouts, parks and wildlife to see along the way. Much better seeing Singapore this way than in a tour bus (besides the air con). Don't forget to bring plenty of water as the humidity is very high here. There's plenty of vending machines and restaurants along the way too.
