    Perhaps the 12-kilometre walk around the MacRitchie Reservoir is not one of the stand-out visitor attractions of Singapore, but I loved it. It's so close to central Singapore and so easily accessible, but within minutes I was away from the crowded city. The boardwalk sections of the trail were particularly beautiful but so were the forest trails. Even on a hot day, things were shady. The trails are popular with local fitness enthusiasts and families, all of whom were observing COVID safety rules most carefully.

    Second time doing this trail, even better as there was no rain but the temperature was cool and bearable.

    Lots of shade and possible pitstops.

    Walked through all the trails. Overall enjoyable. It’s nice to be with nature and stop think about things for a while. I think it’d be much more enjoyable alone. Safe, map is clear, you won’t get lost, and if you do just ask other hikers.

    A newly redevelop garden for all to enjoy their morning or evening walks. There is a children’s playground too if one is coming as a family. It’s a place for all occasions. Bird watching, exercise, barbecue, site seeing, etc. Definitely worth a trip with friends and family.

    It is a nature reserve park with migratory birds , worms, sandpipers of different types, whistling ducks etc. we could see crocodiles. Observation hides are available where visitors can observe the flora and fauna in the surroundings in tranquility and at a distance from the animals and birds.
    Will need time to explore and good weather

    Very cool place to visit, and excellent for taking pictures! The sculptures are very fascinating to look at. I recommend going in the early morning or evening, and it is a lot of walking under the hot sun otherwise.

    I usually get my rental bicycle outside MBS at the Waterfront Promenade as there are usually many bicycles parked there. Starting from there, I usually cycled around the perimeter of the Gardens By the Bay to reach the Marina Barrage. This route is quiet and scenic. Occasionally, I would continue on to Gardens By the Bay East and return my bicycle either at Stadium MRT station or at Kampong Kayu Road near to the Tanjong Rhu HDB estate. Recently, I returned my bicycle at Marina Barrage and had a scenic, windy walk along Marina South Promenade. The access to this path is via the carpark at Marina Barrage. Walking this path allows one to be fully in touch with nature, the sea, clouds, wild flowers and various trees and plants. It ends at Marina South Pier MRT station. Fishing is allowed at the breakwater here.

    Fabulous, the time-slider interactive maps are great, the overall city plan shows why singapore is singapore, the history and future plans are all well presented.

    $6 per person to go up to the top and get a fabulous view and walk about 500m around it all to see 360 degrees of SG.

    Ticket Management office is a bit hard to find down a small passage past the dentists and it closes 1-2 (helpfully) but certainly worth an hour or two of your time for the views

    What a wonderful display of antiques and artifacts. Alvin’s passion to preserve and share Peranakan history and culture was remarkable.
    He is a friendly and gracious host.
    Valuable experience.

    Decided to revisit after last being here in 1989 as a young backpacker.
    Used the North South MRT Line from Newton, took about 35 minutes.
    When you get off at Kranji station you exit and find buses outside. There are signs pointing the way to the site inside the station.

    I caught the 960 bus and travelled 2 stops, you can see the war memorial sign on the left so you shouldn’t miss it. You could walk, its about a kilometre or so but remember it gets hot and there are no facilities at the cemetery and there are some busy junctions to negotiate.

    When you get off the bus you need to follow the road adjacent to the bus stop uphill for about 500 metres, it bears off to the right and when you get to the bend in the road you will see the cemetery in front of you

    It’s beautifully kept but poignant with so many young men and women of all nationalities and faiths buried there. Its a credit to the CWG how well it’s kept.

    The cemetery is on a slope so do consider your abilities before visiting, there is some shade but not too much in the main cemetery itself.

    I caught the bus back to the MRT station at Kranji, to do this you have to cross a busy road with a refuge in the centre as the return bus stop is almost opposite the entrance bus stop. It’s fine if you are fully mobile but if not you may want to consider getting a taxi.
    I caught the 960 bus back to the MRT but there you will find a purpose built bridge across the road complete with an escalator that links directly to the station.
    You can get cakes and food at the station, I did spot a supermarket there too.

    Is it worth a visit-?I thought so, it’s good to see there are other aspects to Singapore apart from the shops and city.

    This is a calm and quite street where one can rekax, dine and do some retail shopping.
    Its a conservation area and we found several wine bars serving traditional or international food. This place give a glimpse of singaporean history and chinese architecture of the houses.

    Labrador Park (拉柏多公园, Taman Labrador), is located in the southern part of mainland SG. The area is gazetted as a nature reserve and has a great picturesque view of the sea. The Labrador Nature reserve is also a site with historical relics from World War II left behind by the former British colonial legacy on the island.
    Labrador Nature Reserve is part of the Southern Ridges adventure-exploring which also comprises nearby Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park.
    It is conveniently located to the Labrador mrt, but one has to walk quite a distance in. From the station it is a walk along the Labrador Villa Rd which leads to Labrador Nature Reserve. We drove so parked at any of the free carparks available.
    An amazing park that is surprisingly not very packed when we visited past few times. One can go fishing, sight-see (old WW2 remnants), exercise and even eye bird-watch here.. For Sightseeing check out the remnants of some British military battlement; there’s the machine gun post and artillery pieces (remains). Or can just enjoy the breeze and tranquillity while using any of the fitness equipment found in the park. Just jogging beside the shoreline and taking in the scenic view of the sea and nearby islands can be so enjoyable! A lot of people fishing at the park too. The ‘natural wonders’ (rocky sea-cliff ) sure make Instagram able-scene!
    Labrador Nature Reserve is really an oasis of tranquillity away from bustling city, not very crowded and allow us to get connected to nature.

    It was a very informative tour - smaller groups are better so you get to see more and get more time to look around. Great fresh beer with a chance to learn how to pour your own beer from a tap and sample heaps of beer variety. I would go again.
