The Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore elevated at 36m above the Henderson Road and connecting Mount Faber Park and Telok Blangah Hill Park. Its unique wave-like structure provides not only a walking path but also resting alcoves for people and animals. (Wild monkeys freely stroll the park and the bridge.)

I was browsing yoursingapore.com for where to go last weekend and this beautiful bridge of waves immediately caught my attention. In 30 minutes, we were on our way to Harbourfront. Exiting the station, we climbed up the stone steps leading to the top of Mt. Faber. The climb was exhausting and we didn’t expect it to be so but the view from the top was worthy of the tiring hike.
Mt. Faber Park is the other end of the Cable Car line connecting to Sentosa Island. It also hosts a couple of posh restaurants offering panoramic views of the city. There are viewing decks, places to rest and spots for exercising.
There are also interesting and subtle elements around the park. Walk slowly, take in the serenity and luscious greenery of the environment and, most importantly, look closely.
We waited for the lighting of the Henderson Waves so when we were on our way back down the station, the trail was already dark. Thanks to our mobile phones, we didn’t trip along the way. This is not a good idea if you have wild imagination of monsters and ghosts like I do. I suggest taking the bus passing in front of the Jewel Box, which may take time. I blame my impatience.
