Places To Hike In Singapore

10 Undiscovered Hiking Trails Every Adventurous Singaporean Should Explore

When we think of Singapore, we see a bustling modern city, densely packed with office towers, shopping malls, and condominiums.

But there’s only so many plates of Char Kway Teow you can devour before making the sweeping declaration: diet starts tomorrow!

Rarely do people consider hiking as a leisure activity in Singapore, especially when our hot and humid weather is pure madness. Besides, our knowledge of nature walks is really limited. Ask around and a certain treetop walk will probably come up 10 times.
