While much of Singapore’s skyline may be dominated by a dense mass of high-rise buildings, the government’s city-planning wing has always prioritised the preservation of nature reserves. Located near the country’s southern tip, the 10km Southern Ridges is made up of various suspended walkways, bridges and public spaces that connect Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve. Henderson Waves – the country’s highest pedestrian bridge – is a must-visit for its eye-catching sinuous design, as is Faber Point for panoramic views of the surrounding area; at the latter, you’ll also find the smallest of Singapore’s Merlion statues. Visit in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat.
