This is a great hike for someone visiting Singapore but who wants to experience the mix of urban and green spaces, eg treetop walks, parkland, and jungle. There's a reasonable chance you'll see...

Beautiful hike and great views on the trail! I did the 10 km hike, which I found to be only a little over 5 km. However, it was nice walking on pavement instead of a dirt road, and the inclination made it more fun. I also loved walking on the canopy path for a while.
If you have some time left in Singapore and do not only want to go for the top tourist attractions, consider walking from Henderson Waves to Forrest Walk, Alexandra Arch, Hort Park, Canopy Walk and Kent Ridge. It’s a beautiful 5.8km walk. Start from the bus stop right at the foot of Henderson Waves or walk down from Mount Faber Cable Car Station.

A trek along The Southern Ridges brings visitors to five other parks - Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and the Labrador Nature Reserve. Spread over 10km of green and open spaces, a hike through The Southern Ridges takes visitors to five local parks which are linked by park connectors. As part of the journey, travellers cross bridges through the Adinandra Belukar, a distinct secondary forest, and can observe a variety of birds. Henderson Waves is another highlight of the walk. Its Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge is a marvel during nightfall - it is illuminated with LED lighting. Trekkers can enjoy panoramic views of lush greenery, sights and sounds of wildlife.
