Singapore Trip: Henderson Waves

Henderson Waves is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, with the height of 120 ft, that is now becoming an outing spot for many people because of its unique shape and amazing beauty. Another architectural wonder in Singapore, if I may say. We had been to this place through a friend’s recommendation (my sister’s friend, Cris). Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to mention how to get there that’s why I kept on googling around but found no exact directions.

Henderson Waves

Since we had no idea how to get there, hubby and decided to go there by foot. It took us half an hour on reaching the place. Whew! Not that bad! The bridge is really beautiful with its giant wave structures. You wouldn’t even feel that your walking on a bridge that connects Mt. Faber Park and Telok Blangah Hill Park. If you don’t feel like going to those parks, you can stay on the bridge and enjoy the beautiful view around you or just sit there while having a bite.

Best time to go there:

  • Morning: between 6:00-8:00 am. Enjoy the fresh and cool air.
  • Evening: between 7:00-11:30 pm. Enjoy the beauty of the bridge lighted with LED.

 

How to get there:

  • By Bus:
    From Vivo City, exit the main road and walk to bus stop 14121 then take Bus 131 or 145. Alight at the 4th stop along Henderson Road. Cross the street and take the staircase up to Telok Blangah Hill. Go up until you see the big signage of the bridge.
  • By Car:
    Parking is available at Mount Faber Carpark D (17 lots) and Telok Blangah Hill Park Carpark 1 (17 lots) & Carpark 2 (total 39 lots)

****Thanks to my hubby for the wonderful photos he took.😉

      Hi Farhana! It’s not that high… You can actually rest for some time while climbing the stairs. I think it’s around 100-150 steps?! I am not so sure of the exact number but it took us almost 15-20 minutes before reaching the bridge with the sign “Henderson Waves”.
