The Hill, Wave and Stream - Singapore Series
I bet you can’t spot Singapore in the world map. And if you do, the hole made by the red pin would be bigger than the size of Singapore. If you happen to pay more than 40$ in the cab to anywhere in the city, you would probably be going around in circle or on sea waters. That's how small this island is. Yet it's a nation well known for its global presence in economy, tourism, vibrant diverse culture and cleanliness!
Mount Faber parkIts one of the most stable government in the world and the threat levels from any source are low, so every major bank has a branch here. You can walk on road or take cab at 2 am with all your jewels and possessions and still be safe. The comforts of lifestyle here makes it second home to any expats like me (many give up their original citizenship to be a Singaporean). In this series I am hoping to provide you a glimpse of this wonderful place.
The gallery, taken 2 years backThe Faber walk is picturesque trail covering the beautiful park towards the top of the hill. There is a small gallery about Singapore history. The steps behind the building would lead you to this breath taking view of the southern islands, including the famous sentosa. For the trail info please click here
Henderson WavesYou don't need map to be walking around, as the name boards here are sufficient enough to guide you through the walk. The walk ends in the artistic cum engineering marvel, the Henderson waves bridge.
The path is made entirely by planks of wood on steel structure
View of the Henderson Road from bridge, can you spot the bus stop?Once you cross the bridge you would be greeted by the dense rainforest trails. There are resting huts with wending machine, view points, child play and exercise zones here.
Play zone, relaxing area
Last time we went there, we got down towards the left to Henderson road. We saw this beautiful stream and pond on the way down. Then we took bus to harbor front Vivo city mall for dinner.
