    For those who want to hike without experiencing a rugged terrain should visit this 10km trail. Trail connects Mount Faber and West Coast. Great vantage points of the city and the Southern Islands.

    Overall, the climb posted a decent challenge, especially for people who are relatively out of shape and need more acclimatisation. In addition, there are loose pebbles and rocks along the way, with stretches of muddy/slippery road, so one needs to watch out for their footing.

    Cable car return tickets is not cheap.

    It is adult$35 for return. Under 12 y.o is $25

    So make a most of it.

    I would highly recommend to buy online, and if u are planning to go to some attractions in Sentosa island, there r always very reasonable plan for adding cable car fee.

    Mount Faber peak has a great view and it was only around $10 from /to Liang court / Clark keys by GRAB.

    It was a bit confusing to go to universal studio from Mt Faber peak.

    I thought we could directly go there but actually had to change the cable car and also had to ride an express train( MONO Rail).

    The dairy farm nature park is easy to go after opening of the MRT downtown line station Hillview. The entrance of the lark is just next to the MRT station exit. The path is wide and not steep, easy to reach to the end. The Singapore Quarry is at one end of the path which has beautiful view.

    We booked this through Flight Centre and was told it was a food tour. It was far from this and we only were able to sample 5 small items. A waste of time for the six of us.

    Visited Butterfly hill last weekend.

    Very beautiful location and despite it labelled a hill, it’s not really a difficult challenge when you climb to the top. Go down the other side and there’s a wonderful view of a Pekan Quarry Lake.

    Saw a great Mormon butterfly (aka Christmas swallowtail) - truly spectacular. Also saw danaid eggfly butterfly and a spotted rustic. Where there are butterflies there are caterpillars in abundance, and to add to diversity grasshoppers and stick insects.

    It was serene and beautiful, apart from the din of lumberjacks chopping down trees.

    So far from life on mainland Singapore. A wonderful location.

    It is an excellent venue for hiking followed by a picnic. I love the fresh air and open space where I can take a break from working on my computer. Simply enjoying the lush greenery with like-minded friends helps me to relax. The fragrance of plants is refreshing especially in a dewy morning and it is a good way to kick-start the day.

    The circular overhead bridge across Braddell Road linking the Kallang Park Connector on either side of Braddell Road is now opened. It allows cyclists to cycle across it except for the ramp stretch where they need to push their bicycles.

    It is so convenient now for joggers from Potong Pasir area to jog along the Park Connector all the way to Bishan Park along the kallang River.

    It enhances the connectivity to Bishan Park. At night or early morning before seven, the lights on the bridge was striking.

    This is a linear park running parallel to the Bukit Timah Expressway. However the tall trees along the park block out the noise from the expressway. In fact this park is lovely for the numerous, tall and mature trees lining both sides of the jogging path. It is about 2.5 km long. It provides a venue for the residents to enjoy and exercise in the outdoors. It also serves to connect the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve with the various Chestnut trails. It also connects to the Bukit Panjang Park Connector which also leads to Pang Sua Pond. It also provides access to the Gansa Trail which ends in Mandai Road.

    Whampoa Park Connector starts at Jalan Rajah, across Toa Payoh Town Park and runs along Sungei Whampoa before ending at Bendemeer Road. It is 4.49 km long. However, this PC is connected to the Kallang PC at Bendemeer by the colourful Kolam Ayer Bridge. Hence it is possible to walk all the way to Kallang Riverside Park.
    It is cyclist-friendly as there are ramps at both overhead bridges across the PIE and CTE. There are much to see along the way such as:
    1) Under PUB's ABC Waters Programme, the 450m stretch of the river from Kim Keat Road to the CTE has been transformed to provide a rain garden, wooden benches and look out deck. Its aim is to foster community bonding and show how the rain garden helps to cleanse rainwater runoff.
    2) I learnt about the use of Gabions along the canal to allow creepers to grow to soften the look of the canal and protect the river banks.
    3) Blk 26B of HDB St George's Tower has a sky Terrace on the 24th floor which offers excellent aerial view of Sunei Whampoa as well as the distant Sports Hub.
    4) The Bendemeer end has the Kolam Ayer ABC Waterfront which includes a viewing gallery, floating platform, riverside plaza and kayak shed.
    Here the Kolam Ayer Bridge connects the Whampoa PC and Kallang PC.

    We started our walk at Woodlands South Mrt Station taking exit 3. After walking along Woodlands Ave 12 n Woodlands Park Connector, we crossed the road to the entrance of Ulu Sembawang PC. This PC is rustic with greenery on both sides. It is one of the prettier PC with a big field next to it ideal for looking at sunrise colors. Soon we reached the other end of the PC where we took bus 171. Alighting from 171 along Sembawang Road, we caught 980 (or 167) for a short ride to Sembawang Hotspring Park. We had a lovely time soaking our feet in the cool weather. Then we went to the Real Food restaurant next to Yishun Pond for lunch.

    This is a linear pedestrian walkway stretching from Geylang Road, opposite to Wisma Geylang Serai, all the way to East Coast Road next to Katong Shopping Centre. From the Geylang end, there are 31 community garden plots next to the walkway. Some gardeners are successful in growing the passion fruits, papayas, ladies' fingers while others focus on flowering plants such as orchids etc.
    Another good detour along this walk is the Eurasian Community House. Beside dining option here at Quentin's, there is an interesting exhibition at the Eurasian Heritage Gallery which opens at 10 am.
    Along the way there are some activities panels suitable for young children to play with. This walkway provides an easy path for getting to various locations from Geylang to Katong.

    Built in the early 1850s, Sembawang Road is the oldest road in Yishun and Sembawang area. My walk covered a small section of Sembawang with its rich heritage. After alighting at the fairly new Canberra MRT station, I walked out immediately into a park connector with delightful yellow leaves trees and other flowering plants along the nature way. I turned into Canberra Lane and reached a green space-the Sendudok Park. Exiting the park and walking along Jln Malu-Malu, I turned right at Jln Jeruju to see the beautiful Sembawang Presbyterian Church with its blue facade. Its outstanding feature is the bell tower. The bells were imported from France and are sound at noon everyday. This church is built on land donated by Mr Ang Oon Hue who was known to be generous to the needy. Sembawang Shopping Centre was also developed by Mr Ang. Besides Sembawang Shopping Centre, many of the nearby shophouses and terrace houses were also built by Mr Ang.

    The road names around here are centred along the theme of story telling in Malay culture such as Jln Salang (the action of driving a keris from the collarbone to the hear), Jln Shaer (a quatrain of four lines with a rhyme), Jln Cherpen (a short story), Jln Hikayat (a legend), and Jln Sajak (a poem).

    Walking along Jln Salang and turning into Jln Shaer, I reached another neighborhood park, Kemuning Park. From the park, there is a small rustic path which leads to Jln Sajak and Jln Cherpen. It is a very short walk along Jln Hikayat to main Sembawang Road. Sembawang Hotspring Park is nearby within a short walking distance. There are many coffee shops and restaurants along Jln Legendi for refreshment stop.

    After reading about the Tampines Heritage Trail- Green Space Trail, we started our exploration of this quarry along Tampines Industrial Ave 1. There are a few easy paths leading immediately to the calm water of the quarry. Rainwater had collected in the old, disused sand quarry and transformed it into a lake. This lake is about one-third the size of Bedok Reservoir and is a favourite with anglers.

    Sand quarrying started in Tampines since 1912 and the boom period began in 1960s when vast urban redevelopment resulted in a high demand for sand.
    By 1991, all quarries in Tampines ceased operations. One former quarry was converted into Bedok Reservoir while Tampines quarry remains disused.

    After enjoying the view of the lake, we took the trail to the right. There are in fact many trails and we just used our instinct to walk the trail away from the water. After some distance. we decided to climb up a slope instead of continuing on the easy trail. We were happy to see another easy trail after the short climb so that we did not need to climb down the slope. Finally we saw the two funnel-shaped towers of Tampines NEWater Service Reservoir.
    There are two coffee shops among the row of shophouses in the former Hun Yeang village just next to our exit point. This row of shophouses faces the Tampines Road/Tampines Link. The only bus which passes this road is bus no.72. We walked along the temple clusters to the bus stop opposite Tampines Dormitory along Tampines Ave 10 to take either bus no. 27 or 168 to our next destination, Tampines Eco-Green. We took about 1 hour and 15 mins for our walk at Tampines Quarry.. Some parts were muddy due to the downpour the previous day. Do bring along mosquito repellent for this walk.
