It’s weird that we’ve never been bored going to Singapore. We like how neat the city is, how pleasant commuting can be, how much time we can spend enjoying our life instead of stressing about small things.
This time on our one week trip to Singapore, we have another goal. It’s to be more active, meaning that we want to sit less, walk more, and enjoy our surroundings more than we enjoy stalking people on social media.
We thought it would be nice to explore more of Singapore’s garden or park because that’s kind of the luxurious we can’t do back in our hometown, Jambi. (It’s weird right?! Considering Jambi is more like a forest than Singapore is). We went to places we’ve never been before.
We didn’t really know much about what we can do in Singapore besides shopping and eating out until we started to look for another options. We went to several cool parks and we are so amazed of it. Singapore really does live up to its reputation as a garden city!
Our first walk was at the Southern Ridges. It’s a 10 km connecting trails that let you walk in the nice open space of Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, Hort Park, Kent Ridges Park, and Labrador Nature Reserve. We didn’t make it to all five parks, but we really enjoyed it!
Oh, we almost forget to mention that we took our picture with our phone camera instead of our mirrorless camera. We really felt that it saves a lot of our time and also effort and that we can really enjoy our surroundings more.
Henderson Waves Bridge
This spot is very popular on Instagram. We found a couple of people taking photos, jogging, or just sitting around. From here, you can enjoy the scenic view of Singapore skyline.
One of the things that we really like walking here is that the trail is pretty much straight forward. You won’t get lost unless that you neglect the signs that lies there in front of you. We also love the fact that it’s very clean, just like the city it self.
We found a wedding spot out of no where, and later we found out that Terrace Garden actually a quite popular spot for wedding! From top of the park, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of Singapore.
We’re glad that we took the walk! It’s one of the best day ever.
