“Hiking” in Singapore?

We’ve read about so many other bloggers who trek in their home countries (such as our blogging friend Curt). Now you might not believe it, but it is possible to do some hiking here in our little red dot too. Now it might not take a few days to hike across the island, but there are trails which offer reasonably good combination of sights and physical challenges.

Today however we are introducing a simpler walking route.

Yep we are sharing with you the sights and sounds of walking along the southern ridges of Singapore. Some have written about this before so we’ll skip the details except to say it connect three parks. This connector is for humans unlike the one at Eco link over BKE for those more familiar with our little red dot. It’s a link where fauna can use it as they like…

Recommended to do this early in the morning before the sun bakes you into a dried prune (or tomato whichever metaphor you prefer). It takes about 2 hours for a brisk walker to cover the distance of approximately 9km, including the mandatory stops for photos… Our start was from the Hortpark ending at the Marang trail. Along the way we enjoyed flora and unfortunately no fauna. Well, maybe the cat waiting to be fed…

Let us show you what we saw while on the walk through the ridges here. Have you walked on it before?

  1. Always love to “hike” in the Southern Ridges. Some parts are more difficult to “hike” because of the steep slopes but overall it is always enjoyable and fun. Another good point is that my shoes are always clean after the hike because no walking on muddy walkway hehe…

    1. Oh it is not too hard if one consider the concrete “jungle” to be part of the hike, for invariably one will be close to such when in our little red dot. There are paths and trails that link one across many parts of the island and sometimes mixing walking in nature and back to neighbourhoods can be all interesting!
