Singapore Hiking Guide: Southern Ridges

Singapore Hiking Guide: Southern Ridges, Singapore, Singapore (B)

Singapore’s long famed reputation as the Garden City has transformed the city into an expanse of urban greenery.

The Southern Ridges exemplifies the very best of Singapore’s Garden City landscaping. Lush hilly parks and nature reserves are juxtaposed against architecturally stunning bridges, bringing in a symphony of birds with a view of the cosmopolitan city.

The Southern Ridges span across Kent Ridge Park, HortPark, Labrador Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Mount Faber Park, as well as stunning architectures such as the Gillman Barracks and Henderson Waves.

To get into the starting point of your hike, alight at Kent Ridge MRT station Exit B, where you will take bus 92. In just a short 3-minute journey, you will alight at Block 85 and walk towards Kent Ridge Park Pond.
