Southern Ridges Walk

Alexandra Rd, Singapore
3 reviews

This is probably my favorite thing to do in Singapore besides eating. It is a walking trail through forests and up and down hills connected by lots of bridges. You'll see the occasional view of the city, but otherwise this is a very secluded and quiet walk. The highlight for me was seeing the monkeys and crossing the Henderson Waves ...

    Henderson Waves Bridge

    0.9 mi from Southern Ridges Walk
    8 reviews

    The Henderson Waves bridge is part of the Southern Ridges trail that is 9km long. As Singapore's weather is humid, it may be a little hard going to go all the way with kids. So you can focus on either end of the trail. The Henderson Waves side is close to Mt Faber, which offers great views of the island. ...

    1 review

    An interesting little war museum tucked away in a residential area of Singapore. It occupies an old, colonial bungalow and is filled with displays (not so much artifacts) from WW2 in Singapore. The museum is in this location due to its proximity to Pasir Panjang which was the site of an important battle. Admission is just a couple dollars and ...

    Nice wooded area and former fort. I enjoyed the walk from the park to Keppel Bay more than the park itself. Eco Gourmet Cafe makes for a nice pit stop.

    One of my favourite area in the city, full of history, nice houses, a good variety of places to eat. The "old" Singapore worth a visit beyond skycrappers, shopping malls and other architectural delirious.

    For a deeper insight into the founding of colonial Singapore, as well as the thinking behind British ethnic urban planning of the time, head the traditional heart of Malay-Muslim life in Singapore. Most guide books will suggest a visit to the thriving textile market of Arab Street. While a colourful centrepiece, the rest of the neighbourhood is worth getting to ...

    The view is great and the marina is nice. Just be sure to dress for HOT weather during the sunny days. Restaurants and several cafes (Starbucks and a Coffee Bean, I believe) are really close by.

    National Museum of Singapore

    14 reviews

    This is one of the best museum I've ever visited. The key feature is the Historical Gallery, featuring a very interactive walkthrough the 200+ years history of Singapore -- from the earliest days to the modern age. Here, most of the exhibits are considerably interactive, and visitors are encouraged to interact. Audio tour is provided, in form of a portable ...

    Peranakan Museum

    3.35 mi from Southern Ridges Walk
    4 reviews

    Peranakans are native to Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. The best way to describe this ethnic group is a 'creole' blend of Chinese and the local country they adopt. For example, the early Chinese settlers in Singapore integrated their culture with the local Malay culture. This gives birth to a very unique and colurful culture known for its intricate beadwork, gold ...

    Haji Lane and Arab Street were probably my favorite sights in Singapore. Understated, modest and historic, Haji Lane is a great alternative to the noisy malls of Orchard Street. You'll find real gems here, making it the perfect place for local shopping.

    Given Singapore's maritime influence, it is understandable that the Thian Hock Keng temple was an important place of worship for Hokien immigrants as they gave thanks to the Goddess of the Sea. This is one of Singapore's oldest chinese temples and is a typical South Chinese architectural building. It's amazing to note that it was built without the use of ...

    When in Rome (or in this case Singapore).....Stop in at the Long Bar (located at the Raffles Hotel) for a Singapore Sling! The drink was overpriced, but the straw fans and colonial architecture of this stunning (inspired by the plantations of 1920s Malaysia) was pretty cool and well worth the adventure.

    Amongst the looming shopping centres in Singapore, Tanglin Shopping Centre still continues to thrive. It's filled with asian and south-east asian antique shops. A great place to pick up a special souvenir from your trip. There's a map shop for collectors, a specialist bookstore and even a cute local deli tucked away in the corner of the shopping centre.
