N K's City Tips

  • Hot, hot, and humid! Remember Singapore's "evergreen" weather so dress appropriately for long outdoor nature walks. Two layers of clothing always work for me.
  • MRT can get you (almost) everywhere. If you stay in the city for more than a couple of days, buy an EZ-Link card and use it for MRT and bus rides.
  • Your EZ-Link card can be topped up in $SG10 increments and is valid for 10 years so it may serve you on multiple visits to the city or you can get you balance back before leaving.
  • Google Maps work well in Singapore including public transport. In addition, there is a great web site and a mobile app called gothere.sg which also shows taxi ride prices.
  • There is absolutely no problem finding delicious food in Singapore (for example, check out its crabs or sweet kaya toasts) but (apologies), it's not the focus of this guide.

    Tips
    • Main gems: Butterfly Garden, Enchanted Garden, and Orchid Garden. Secondary: Sunflower and Cactus gardens.
    • To access all the locations on the "nature trail" you need to either arrive or check in for departure first.
    • How to find them? Changi Airport maps (in various languages) are available on multiple stands, look for "nature trail" there.
    • Butterfly Garden should be visited only from sunrise to sunset as butterflies are people too and sleep at night.

    • Entrance to the Gardens is right near the MRT station with same name (CC19).
    • Visiting the gardens with children? Check out Jacob Ballas Children's Garden.
    • Want to buy some souvenirs? There are two gift shops: large one in the middle of the garden and a small one near the southern entrance.

    • The Safari's gathering point can be reached on foot from Singapore Zoo.
    • Get off the tram and take a walk through at least some of the trails. That's the best way of enjoying the experience.
    • If you plan on returning by public transport (bus + MRT), leave the place shortly after the end of Safari to catch a late night bus.
    • Not all animals are clearly visible at night (some are hiding) so take your time to look around.

    Jurong Bird Park is a zoo which is entirely dedicated to birds. It has several aviaries (one huge and a few smaller ones) but rest of the birds still suffer in their cages.

    N K Says:

    The Southern Ridges is one of the best nature trails in Singapore. It combines different terrains and scenery: from two canopy walks on different heights to Kent Ridge and Hort parks as well as Mount Faber.

    Tips
    • Henderson Waves is a beautiful and unusual bridge which is also a place of romantic gatherings in the evening. Visit it and you'll understand why :-).
    • Hort Park is a great place to stop by and explore including its Butterfly Garden.
    • The trail consists of 8 uneven sections: Canopy Walk, Flora Walk (Hort Park), Alexandra Arch Bridge, Forest Walk, Hilltop Walk, Henderson Waves Bridge, Faber Walk, and Marang Trail
    • Allow at least a couple of hours to walk along the trail. More if you want to explore Kent Ridge and Hort parks or Mount Faber.
    • It is marked in most places (Mount Faber section markings are less obvious and sometimes missing) but you can follow other people or ask for directions if not sure.
    • I found Canopy Walk (16 meter high) and Forest Walk (up to 18 meter high) to be the most interesting and cool sections.
    • If you start the trail from Canopy Walk and finish with Marang, it could be fun celebrating the trail completion in VivoCity (and continuing to Sentosa from there if you like).
    • Several maps of the trail are available on the net, for example check out this official one http://tinyurl.com/qjl99wa.

    Mount Faber offers some great views of Singapore from high above. There is also a very nice park on top of it and a cable car going to Sentosa. It can be visited either by itself or as part of a trail across Southern Ridges.

    Jurong Eco-Garden is one of the hidden gems of Singapore. I actually found it by accident when visiting Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle. It's a relatively small park with free admission and some interesting features like stone sculptures and a nature trail.

    • At the time of this review the place could be reached by a 15 min bus ride (bus 199) from Boon Lay (EW27) MRT station and then a 15 min walk.
    • The best way of visiting the garden is together with Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle which is located right in the middle of it.
    • The garden has an X-shape form and you can visit each of its wings separately. Different scenery awaits you there: from some unusual sculptures to a beautiful forest trail.
