The Views go on For Miles Atop Mt Faber
Singapore’s a pretty flat place. There used to be more hills, but most were flattened in part to help fill in the country’s expanding coastline as Singapore has always pursued an aggressive land reclamation push (it’s 25% bigger than it was two centuries ago … and it’s still growing!). The views are great from Mount Faber Park’s highest point, Faber Point; at 106 meters above sea level, is one of the highest peaks in mostly low-lying Singapore. Enjoy sweeping views of the city, harbor and surrounding islands. A pleasant 1k trail winds through lush greenery and there’s often a nice cooling breeze up there (which is not a given in much of Singapore). It’s especially lovely in the early evening if there’s a nice sunset complimenting the twinkling lights of the city and ships below. Get there by taxi or take a cable car between Sentosa Island and Mount Faber and enjoy the views on route. The park is a part of the Southern Ridges trail system, a 10km network of connecting trails also comprising Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark, Kent Ridge Park and Labrador Nature Reserve.
