    This is part of the 5km Southern Ridge of connectors and walkway for Exercise enthusiasts. It was a public holiday evening and we try out this short portion which is just a short 8 mins drive from our place.
    We started off from the Henderson Rd where we reach the steps leading to the entrance/road of Henderson Waves Bridge. Quite a (vertical) climb of less than 10mins, for the uninitiated, go slow. April was hot month and we sweating when we reached there. Still early around 5.30pm, Not Sunset view yet.
    This eye-catching pedestrian bridge connects Mount Faber Park with Telok Blangah Hill Park. Part of a seamless walk along the Southern Ridges and it offers great views of both downtown and part of the Sentosa Island from afar. Definitely a popular destination for joggers, walkers and there are equal number of couples and families too. Many either sits in the shaded alcoves or were busy taking nice pictures while enjoying the panoramic views.
    The Walk will provide ample Instagram-able shots amidst the lovely greenery. There is even a small Therapeutic Garden @ Telok Blangah Hill Park! The bridge’s most notable feature is its organic wave-like design. Part of the “undulating” curved metal waves seemed to rise over or beneath the walkway, giving a spectular view!
    For a longer exercise walk, one can actually chain together from Telok Blangah Hill Park -> Mount Faber Park -> Hort Park -> Kent Ridge Park link. We may try them next time though.
    We exit via the stream garden route where we descend to the more quiet T Blangah Heights, and then took a nice dinner in the quiet neighbourhood. .
    Definitely a great way to combine Nature Appreciation with Exercise & Workout

    Historic suspension bridge dating back to 1868 by a Glaswegian company, - P & W Maclellan. The bridge was used to hoist art for the Singapore Art week which colour to its otherwise grey structure. It looks great by night too.

    It is totally easy to overlook this bridge. The more popular, pedestrian Jubilee bridge is next door with the incredible views of Marina Bay, the Marina Sands and the Merlion or even the historic Cavenagh Bridge on the river. However, under it or along the river to the north, the incredible artistic achievement that is the bridge slaps you. It was made for amazingly beautiful geometric pictures. This gem is hidden in plain sight, but once you see it, it is amazing. It simply has incredible architectural lines and views. However, if you only drive above it, you will miss it all. Go underneath and see as the pictures are great but don't do it justice.

    I have never written so many reviews for bridges in such a short span as Singapore. However, each has its own beauty and each its own time and purpose. Again at the old mouth of the Singapore River, this bridge was built around 1900 to carry the expansion of traffic. It is a heavy steel design but clearly more substantial than the historic Cavenagh Bridge and yet overtaken by the modern, geometric Esplanade Bridge. The Anderson is two spans side by side to handle the increase in commerce across the river. However, it has been amended again with one span now serving only pedestrians. Still, the heavy steel arch gives it character and style, and its location between the other two makes it ideal for pictures. Also at night the white painted steel looks amazing in purple light. It is another great bridge on the Singapore river.

    Singapore has so many great bridges that a vehicle bridge like this gets lost with other bridges more scenic and more historic. Still we crossed over and under and enjoyed the scenery, during the day and night.

    Sunday 20th October and we were walking to the Singapore Flyer along the Singapore River and we came across this walkway.

    The Queen Elizabeth Walk located within the Esplanade Park and is between the historic Anderson and modern Jubilee Bridges.

    The walk commemorates the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 .

    There are a number of landmarks and points of interest, including, the Tan Kim Seng Fountain, the Lim Bo Seng Memorial, the Makan Angin Statue and Rising Moon Sculpture and more. The Theatres by the Bay are a feature along the way.

    Another nice place to walk along in Singapore.

    Being a resident around this area, I personally feel that this is a place where you can find really legit local food at a super affordable rate.

    The highlight of my review will be the hidden gems around this area, which can all be found in the North Bridge Road market at Block 10.

    What's really good and must try here is the Fried bee hoon (Located near the Snake Temple), nearer to the washroom at the right side. I have been eating the food from this stall since I was young and what's really awesome about this stall is that the bee hoon is prepared freshly by batches, and their fried food really appeals to me.

    Some other worth mentioning stalls form this market is the Carrot cake, Prawn Mee, there is this coffee stall which is owned by an elderly auntie, her traditional coffee really gives me the coffee kick and I really recommend this.

    The beauty about North Bridge Road is that all the awesome foods are of walk-able distance.

    For instance: Beach Road Army Market, Michelin Ba Chor Mee near 463 Crawford Lane and Hap Seng Loong Coffee is of walk-able distance.

    If you call yourself a foodie, then I think it's really worth visiting this place with an empty stomach,and I am sure you will get a good eating experience around this area!

    The Sheares bridge curves over Marina Bay - there are two portions, the first parallel to the Helix pedestrian bridge (overlooking Marina Bay Sands) and the second, crossing over Gardens by the Bay. The bridge used to be part of the East Coast Parkway highway, but the highway is now diverted and the bridge is part of Sheares Avenue now. It's a little bit of a scramble up to the bridge (you can access it either from the city side, or from Gardens by the Bay East), but once up there, spectacular views over Marina Bay. Approaching from Tanjung Rhu side, you get different views. Once on the bridge, you can't cross over the lanes of traffic (obviously!), so decide which side you want oogle before climbing. For walking directions, go to Wikiloc and google "mostlyharmless" for trail maps. Don't go when the sun is up: there is no shade, tons of concrete and you will likely vanish in a puff of superheated steam.

    Sunday 20th October and we took the Singapore River Tour which wound it's way along the River.

    We travelled under numerous bridges, including this one, as we visited the Quays and places of interest and attractions along the way.

    The Bridge, a beam-structure and was completed in 1889.

    It is located in Clarke Quay and spans over the Singapore River and links Clarke Quay to Swissôtel Merchant Court. It is used by pedestrians and cyclists to cross

    It is also known as Kampong Malacca Bridge. Was also known as the Green Bridge because of the colour it was painted.

    There is a popular story that says the bridge got its name because in the past, labourers and boat people gathered there to listen to to storytellers and to read. The reality is is was named in honour of William Henry Macleod Read, a merchant and politician.

    This is a regular bridge named after a person from the city’s past. It’s not really a thing to go see although you will see it if you walk around.

    The Dragonfly Bridge is a pedestrian walkway from the Sands Expo building that leads into the Garden by the Bay. The bridge itself isn’t all that interesting, but it’s the perfect vantage point for views of the Dragonfly and Kingfisher lakes. While the views during the day are good, it’s best to view it during the night when there is a light show of a multitude of egg shaped sculptures across the lake. The bridge also has great views of the Sands Expo and again, night is best to see the latter building lit up.

    It is simply a lovely walk along the Singapore River with its fourteen bridges across it.
    One of the bridges is called the Pulau Saigon Bridge beside the Warehouse Hotel. It has an interesting name and this new 43m-long bridge was constructed in 1997. It is 400m away from the original Pulau Saigon Bridge. The new Pulau Saigon Bridge links Saiboo Street to Havelock Road. There is a granite pedestrian walkway as well as a 60m-long pedestrian underpass with colourful murals.
    The original Pulau Saigon Bridge was built in 1890, and demolished in 1986 as it blocked the development of the Central Expressway.
    This bridge is named as Pulau Saigon Bridge as there was a small triangular island ( Pulau Saigon ) in the middle of the river long ago. In 1991, the island was merged with the river bank, forming the land on which River Place condominium stands today.
