Starting your ride from Marina Bay Sands, ride across the Helix Bridge and enjoy a leisurely ride along the Kallang River. Turn back at the bridge crossing the river near Kallang MRT, and head back towards the skyscrapers, passing by the Esplanade and stopping at the Merlion.

For those in the mood for a bit of romance, lock up the bicycles and head up to the Esplanade roof for the Marina Bay Sands Light Show.

The head-turner of this park is not the variety of Pokemons in Pokemon GO, it’s the man-made waterway. If you’re lucky, you will be able to see birds like the Pink-necked Green Pigeon or a White-throated Kingfisher.

Punggol Waterway Park is probably the most accessible scenic area on this list as it connects to residential areas and Waterway Point, offering a variety of activities to all age groups.

When you think of Singapore, the Merlion and Esplanade comes to mind. But how about lighthouses? If you’ve never visited one in Singapore, try cycling over to Raffles Marina Lighthouse. Don’t worry about security or entrance issues, it is a non-operational lighthouse and therefore is open to the public.

The ride up Mount Faber Park may be an uphill battle, but the bird’s eye view of Singapore makes up for it. If this landscape is not enough, you can head out to the other parts of the Southern Ridges like HortPark and Henderson Waves.

#8 Rail Corridor Test Track

 

A post shared by Xavier Lur (@xavlur) on

 

The test track is developed by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) to see what materials should be incorporated for the future Rail Corridor.

What stood out the most had to be the Glow in the Dark trail. While it may not be as bright when you’re there, it is still worth the Instagram moment!
