Henderson Waves Bridge
I’ve been living in Singapore for 8 months now and I’ve yet to discover and explore the many places SG has to offer. Famous tourist spots here would be the Universal Studios, Zoo, Safari, and theme-park related places, but you have to live here to know that there are a lot of different recreational parks around the country that is perfect for a relaxing picnic out with the family or friends.
So last weekend, a college friend, who is now based in the states went to visit us here. It’s amazing how friendship can survive despite the distance. Anyways, instead of taking her to the theme parks here, we decided to take her to Henderson Waves Bridge on a sunny Saturday morning.
Henderson Waves Bridge is a part of Southern Ridges, a 9 km chain of greenery, in which consist primarily of three large hill parks – Mount Faber, Telok Blangah Hill Park and Kent Ridge Park.
Henderson Waves, at a height of 36 m, is Singapore’s highest pedestrian bridge. A wave-shaped, steel-and-timber structure, it spans 274 metres across Henderson Road.
This bridge was among the Most Famous Bridges Around the World. It would be best to visit this bridge during the night because the view is spectacular with the lights. They open the lights from 7 pm to 2 am. To get there, we went to Jurong East MRT, walked to Jurong East Library and board bus number 176 for a 30 minute ride. We alighted at the aft Telok Blangah Heights bus station and from there you can see a flight of stairs leading up to the bridge.
