I’m going to let you in on a not-so-known spot in Singapore that’s perfect for picnics/jogs/relaxation.
It’s Gardens by the Bay East! If you drive/cab, alight just before you turn into the Marina Bay Golf Course. Those of you who do not stay near the east, you probably will get lost. It’s really deep in Tanjong Rhu area. However once you get there, the lack of crowd is really peaceful. The gardens are also very well-maintained for a public park.
This is also where you can climb up several flights of stairs to get onto Benjamin Sheares Bridge. Yes, you can walk along it like those KPMG cyclists you saw in Ah Boys to Men.
It’s a once-in-a-lifetime thing which I wanted to try for a long while already. One thing off my bucket list =D
It’s also quite fun to go for such “hiking” trips on Sunday mornings. Next time I’m going to get into my running gear and jog along the River/Reservoir because the scenery is beautiful.
I only hope that this place remains empty and serene for as long as can be.
