Tired of being stuck at home and hiking the same trails every weekend? Change it up by visiting these areas to not only get your sweat on, but also to get some scenic shots of the sky.
Lorong Halus Wetlands
Lorong Halus Wetlands is located in Pasir Ris, starting from the expressway to pier. The Lorong Halus Bridge is designed to look like an old railway bridge, here you can get one of the most stunning views of the sunrise.
While you’re here, don’t forget to explore the rest of the area as Lorong Halus is filled with beautiful greenery and farms of coconut and rubber plantations. It is easy to spend the whole morning exploring - whether it be by foot or by bike.
Catch the sunrise at a less crowded location here. Take the Tanjong Rhu Promenade trail as it runs under the highway along the waters. Watch the sun rise and set over an urban landscape - definitely a unique sight. You can also catch it at the Tanjong Rhu Lookout Tower, located more towards the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
Explore the area and you will find multiple malls such as the Kallang Wave Mall where you can grab a bite before heading back. If you are feeling sporty, you can also visit Singapore Sports Hub where you can do some fun water activities such as kayaking.
While the view at Marina Barrage is no doubt breathtaking, it is especially so during sunset. Get there early to get a spot and have a picnic with your loved ones as you watch the sky turn from blue to orange. At dusk, you can also catch a panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline. It is definitely worth the trip down!
Changi Boardwalk surrounds Changi coast. Take the Changi Coastal Walk and wander around the coast and enjoy the sea view before and after the sun rises. You can either stay on the boardwalk or the beach to catch the views. As this boardwalk is on the far east of Singapore, you are able to get a full view of the sun rising.
Mount Faber Park
While Mount Faber has one of the more hilly terrains to hike in Singapore, it is definitely worth it once you see the picturesque view from the top. Hike the trail up to Faber Point to get a stunning view of the neighbourhood. You can also get to the top by car, if hills are not your forte. There are multiple car parks located near the summit.
While here, you can also take a look at murals located just below Faber Point depicting some scenes in Singapore’s history. You can also search for one of the seven merlions in Singapore here!
Tips on Catching the Sun at its Prime
While the sun rises between 6:45 to 7:15, you should get to the location earlier to get to the best spots. While you are early, you can also enjoy the fresh morning air. Get in touch with nature in the early hours. Don’t forget to check the exact time where the sun will rise or set the day before to prepare yourself.
