Changi Airport to Mount Faber, Singapore

The road to the top of what was once called the ‘Teluk Blangah Hill’ had been obscured by thick undergrowth, before Captain Charles Edward Faber cut through it and allowed for the road to be built. The hill was then renamed Mount Faber and had, in historical times, almost been converted into a fort in the fear of revolt from the Indian sepoys following the Indian Mutiny in 1857, but alas this had never come to fruition, though defence work had been carried out in anticipation of the fort.

Hike for the Harbourfront View

Mount Faber now stands proud as a tourist destination in Singapore, and offers amazing panoramic views of the dense central business district as well as overlooking the Harbourfront.

For those who enjoy a little hike, they may find themselves enthralled by the opportunity to walk up the Marang Trail that leads from Marang Road, accessible by way of taking Exit D once alighting at the Harbourfront MRT station. Once you get to the hilltop, remember to take a deep breath and enjoy the views of Keppel Harbour and Sentosa.

Henderson Waves

Where the Marang Trail is easily accessible by way of public transport, adventure-seekers may want to explore other nature sites of Singapore, with Mount Faber as the starting point!

Upon reaching Faber Point, visitors can follow the signs displayed to guide their way through to Teluk Blangah Hill Park. Here comes the exciting part: in order to get to the park, you need to cross over the Henderson Waves, the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

A standard architectural piece that sees the unity between urban engineering and elements of nature, the Henderson Waves is built at 36m over Henderson Road, and is an impressive 247 meters long. This structure that literally bridges the gap between Mount Faber and Teluk Blangah Hill Park is intricately designed with a broad yellow balau wood timber decking, and is appropriately named Henderson Waves due to the seven ‘ribs’ that rise above and drop below the walkway, hence constructing its distinctive wave shape. These ‘waves’ are more than just aesthetics, because they also serve as convenient sheltered rest stops for those who need a break from the hike!

The Fork in the Road

An elevated metal walkway awaits your arrival upon your cutting through Teluk Blangah Hill Park. Now, as you cross this walkway, an impending decision is to be made when you reach the fork in the road.

You can either branch off to the Labrador Nature Reserve, which boasts a tranquil seafront where the seaside park is reclaimed from part of Pasir Panjang, or Long Beach. Perfect for romantic evening strolls or for a scooter ride over the broad promenade, the Labrador Nature Reserve definitely offers a zen-experience. For the children, there are conducive toddler-friendly playgrounds set up in the reserve. If family time is what you’re looking for, the Labrador Nature Reserve is the perfect direction to take from the metal walkway.

Having said that, another road branches off the leaf-shaped Alexandra Arch bridge and ultimately leads to HortPark and Kent Ridge Park.

HortPark, which lays in the valley between Teluk Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park, is a horticultural wonderland which boasts an endearing English cottage park, with a wooden swing set, and a much more formally-landscaped garden which provides an elegant and timeless backdrop for garden-themed photos.

Kent Ridge Park

Kent Ridge Park on the other hand is accessible by way of a footpath from HortPark, and was once known as Pasir Panjang Ridge but had been renamed in 1954 to commemorate the visit of the Duchess of Kent and her son, the Duke of Kent, in 1952. Walking along the ridge, which is paved with hauntingly beautiful trees whose branches form a makeshift canopy overhead, will lead you to the top of Kent Ridge Park that provides the vantage point of the coastline.

If you’re up for an adventure, the Nature Walk will really inspire the explorer in you as it leads you on a trail to the secondary forest--but for this activity, it is advised that you are properly attired for the workout!
