    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.

    I found this place to be quite Humbling, the stories and conditions of the people that were locked up here will really put it all into perspective.
    As an avid military history buff this place was a must see on our trip to Singapore, and I am so glad we made time for a visit. The museum itself is small, but full of interesting displays and information. You could skim though in 30minutes or take your time read and study the information which took us 3 hours. A number of touch screens around full of information give it a modern feel, the museum itself is going with the times and moving to cashless, so bring a credit/debit card.
    Overall, we found the museum to be an extremely moving place, I didn't feel right to take photos of anything inside the museum I was that moved. It's very informative on the area and the events that happened there. Its location is tucked into a corner of the New Changi prison and close to Changi airport. A bus stops right out front running both ways so easy to go there and back from wherever you came from. Small restaurant next to the museum is a nice outdoor undercover area to relax. Johore Battery is a 1 km walk around the corner.

    Interesting and peaceful way to learn about some of the history of Singapore. Easy to walk around. You may even spot some weddings too!

    This was a great way to see the soul of Singapore--to see that it is more than just fancy shiny buildings, but that it has a rich historical culture. Highly recommend.

    This a beautiful rainforest walk. We spent 4 hours walking. There are different trails. We did all of them. There are short trails that are entirely on the boardwalk. The rest are on a cleared path. The tree top walk is amazing. You cross a suspended bridge.
    There are monkeys everywhere. Beware, they will grab a plastic bag if they see it. One climbed up my daughter's leg when she stopped to take a photo! . Once past the boardwalk, there are fewer monkeys to be seen.
    We also saw turtles, water monitors, birds, squirrels. The rainforest is a peaceful piece of paradise with beautiful birdsong. There is a Cafe at the start. You can also kayak. This is a must do if you enjoy nature walks. Make sure you have decent walking shoes. Much of the walk is in the shade. There are a couple of ranger stations on the way to refill water bottles and toilet stops. Do not carry plastic bags even in back pack. A monkey jumped on my backpack and unzipped it, taking out the contents. I tried to take the plastic from it but it bared its teeth. I picked up plastic bag remnants and juice bottles on the walk so it obviously happens often.

    Amazingly beautiful, not something that you should or would associate with a Cemetry. The location, the gardens, the structures, the view were all perfect.
    A train to Kranji Station and one of a number of buses (we used 960) about 2 stops drops you at the driveway. A walk up the driveway/entrance road and you are there. It is a sad place to visit, but we wanted to go pay our respects, and were surprised with the beauty of the site. Every bit of it was well thought out and planned. We spent over an hour walking the site, what struck me was the number of unknown graves, such a moving thing to see is a headstone with no name attached.
    There is nothing in the immediate area, and it's not a place you will happen upon, so you have to want to go here and make the effort to do so. But it is worth the time and effort, very moving experience.

    Visited here in July. Really something different and well worth anyone going to see. Highly recommended and close to the MRT station makes it convenient too.

    Due to its remoteness, this is one of the most quiet spots for walking in Singapore. The area is fantastic for seasonal birding and if you want to spot the Malayan monitor lizards.

    Not an art gallery; instead, this is where the city planners hang out. There's a lot of interesting information here: interesting old maps showing how Singapore has developed, and interactive displays outlining how Singapore deals with practical issues such water supply, waste services, etc.

    The most dramatic exhibit is a scale model of the city centre that's metres across - has to be seen to be believed.

    So it didn't sound that much, but in reality it is stunning and marked (if you are going downhill from the top the cable car at Mount Faber - and this is recommended) the beginning of the Southern Ridge walk that in parts is on a walkway of stilts through the tree canopy (although you can also walk below) that is simply lovely. This is a real hidden gem (to tourists but not the locals who come out in force at the weekends)

    Super street with quirky bars. There is such a fabulous vibe in this street. We went to a couple of bars for martinis and it was great.
    Very central to all tourist locations and walking distance from the orchard road.

    If you have children and would like to teach them how to fly a kite. This will be an ideal location on the barrage where it is windy. The only setback is the field can be muddy if it rains the day/night before. Remember to bring sunscreen for a hot afternoon outing.

    This was a total surprise, completely wild and untamed. Best to go with someone who knows their way around it, as it really is wild and huge. Apparently teeming with snakes, though we didn't see any (thankfully!), and the mosquitoes are pretty vicious, too, but what an amazing place.

    A newly redevelop garden for all to enjoy their morning or evening walks. There is a children’s playground too if one is coming as a family. It’s a place for all occasions. Bird watching, exercise, barbecue, site seeing, etc. Definitely worth a trip with friends and family.
