Singapore Country Guide

Tour Itineraries


Southern Ridges Walk

The entire trail can be covered in two and half hours if you hurry but that wouldn't be much fun. The most scenic portion of the trail is the section between HortPark (in western Singapore) and Mount Faber (the gateway to Sentosa) in the south. Anything wheeled, including bicycles and roller skates, is not allowed on most of the trail. Running or jogging is okay and quite popular. The parks get busy on the weekends but are quiet on weekdays.

West Coast Park is very much a local park full of picnicking families, featuring a McDonalds if you want to tank up with junk food before you hit the trail. To start your quest, cross West Coast Road at Carpark 3 to enter Clementi Woods, a quiet neighborhood park that hasn't been touched in 20 years. Follow the signage towards the amphitheatre and Clementi Road.

The grandly named Kent Ridge Heritage Trail starts here. But the so-called "trail" is for most part just the sidewalk next to roads running through the grounds of the National University of Singapore (NUS), across busy South Buona Vista Road, and then through Science Park I. Signage is limited, so you may need to ask for directions from the locals, although there are a few maps and panels scattered about.
