The Hike

Starting from Kent Ridge MRT, walk across Science Park Drive and enter the trail to Kent Ridge Park. Hike up the park to Kent Ridge Park Main Carpark where a World War II Memorial Plaque is eracted. This is the site of the Battle of Opium Hill (Bukit Chandu), where one of the fiercest battle was fought during the Battle of Singapore in World War II.

From there, take the Canopy Walk to the Reflections at Bukit Chandu war museum before descending to HortPark.

Discover the different themed gardens that dot the park before taking a break at HortCentre.

Cross the Alexandra Arch Bridge and walk the Forest Walk, a steel pedestrian walkway that offers an elevated view of the park and surrounding scenery.

Take a break at the top of Telok Blangah Hill Park (Terrace Garden) before proceeding to Mount Faber Park via the Henderson Waves bridge. Known for its artistic, wave-like structure, Henderson Waves Bridge is the highest and second longest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

Head to Faber Point for a panoramic view of the sunset. Be sure to visit the Merlion statue!

Descend down the Marang trail to Marang Road where the Harbourfront MRT is located. Vivocity mall is just a stone throw away.
